“Success isn’t always about greatness. It’s about consistency. Consistent hard work leads to success. Greatness will come”Dwayne Johnson
Cannot quite believe that I am writing this but with any significant milestone, I wanted to celebrate and thank you all for your support with my little HR blog.
Yesterday I had an incredible 700 visitors to my blog! If you were one of them, thank you so very much, I hope that you are enjoying my HR musings.
When I started the blog just under four years ago, never did I think I’d get even 100 people viewing my blog, but recently you may have noticed that I have a lot more content and that is only set to increase over the coming months. I have enjoyed writing this blog so much and with highlights like HR acts of kindness and the CIPD qualifications Q&A as well as being a finalist at the UK Blog Awards 2019, this blog has not only introduced me to many new connections, it has also presented me with so many incredible opportunities by reaching a worldwide audience.
So without being soppy, this is a post to thank you for your support and I look forward to writing many more posts for you to enjoy.
Just a quick message from me to wish all of the finalists the very best of luck for tonight’s awards.
The event is being broadcast LIVE on YouTube from 6:30pm so if you’re not subscribing to their channel already, please make sure you do and you never know, next year you might fancy entering yourself!
Keep all of your fingers crossed for me, it is an absolute pleasure to represent HR and wellbeing initiatives within the workplace to create better working cultures for everyone and inspire others by using my blog to convey these essential topics.
Good luck everyone!
I can’t quite believe that I am writing this but thanks to your votes, I am delighted to announce that I am a finalist at the UK Blog Awards 2019!

When I meet people that have either read the blog or seen me speak at an event, one of the first questions I get asked is how I managed to get from being a Travel Agent to an HR Consultant.
The reason I was inspired to write this post is because at this time of year, many people think, new year, new career, and I thought this may help some people if they were considering this particular situation.
The shameless selfie above was taken just before Christmas outside of the Maidenhead branch of TUI (formerly Thomson Holidays, and yes I did get some strange looks!) this is where I had my first proper job interview at the age of 18 when it was known as Lunn Poly (that may take a few of you back!). I was just about to finish my A-Levels in business, Travel and Tourism and I didn’t want to wait until my exam results, I wanted to get into work as soon as possible, so the day after my exams finished, I was working and sending people all over the world on their dream holidays.
