In 2012 guest blogger Nina Joy, speaker and author of The Adventures of a Cancer Maverick, received the shocking news that she had incurable breast cancer and her life expectancy was less than 12 months. Nina could have become just another statistic, but she couldn’t and wouldn’t just sit back and accept the inevitable. Nina felt she had been training for this all her life. She has over 25 years’ experience in financial services and has faced many challenging projects and situations. The skills developed during that time now came into their own. She knew exactly what she needed to do….. defy the odds, even in the most difficult of circumstances.
It’s full steam ahead at The Bayford Foundation in the countdown to our fourth bootcamp which gets underway on April 22 and runs for eight weeks.

In a UK first, our foundation, run by BE Fuel Cards, takes recruits from all walks of life – and of all ages – and puts them through boot camp development programmes in Telephone Sales. Our ‘earn as you learn’ way of doing things means we also pay them while we train them.
