At the start of a New Year, many of us reflect upon the aspects in our lives we wish to change or improve. It may be to lose weight, take up a new hobby – or to develop confidence and self-esteem.
The average Briton will spend £868 on Christmas this year, but in these credit crunch times who can really afford to splash out so much cash on one day of the year?
No one wants to be seen as Scrooge, however we reckon that you can still enjoy a magical and special Christmas on a budget with planning and a sprinkle of creativity.
We’ve previously looked at how to prepare for an interview, which focused on key areas such as doing your research and positioning how your own skills and experience fit into the role you are being interviewed for.
We’re now moving onto some tried and tested tips and techniques you can apply on the big day.
Our guest blog is from Nicky Pattinson – an international sales guru turned inspirational speaker.
Nicky has been a supporter of the Bayford Foundation since the beginning, inspiring our recruits to be the best they can be at the ICan event alongside Richard McCann, Andrew Walker and Billy Schwer.
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.
As our second bootcamp picks up speed, our recruits are learning a wealth of telesales tips and techniques – from picking up the phone to building valued relationships with customers.
Our third ‘earn as your learn’ bootcamp gets off the ground in January 2014 and our team at BE Fuel Cards is looking forward to welcoming potential recruits to our offices on 6 December at Bowcliffe Road, Hunslet.
As the runners of our region prepare for charity runs, including next year’s Run for All events, the Bayford Foundation – which champions a work life balance for its employees and bootcamp recruits – share some tips on how we can all boost our fitness levels and productivity.
