Please share your favourite management development insight or quote.
I have always been inspired by John Strelecky's 'Big Five for Life', which is about choosing the five main things you want to see, do or experience in your life and going for them. It's about having a vision which you can aim for. My vision is to write and facilitate creative workshops to enable change and development.
What kind of person are you?
More about you (Short Bio or any other details you’d like people to know)
In the past I worked in the newspaper industry in a variety of roles selling advertising space, producing page make-ups, copy-taking live news copy. After having children I worked in further education colleges. I have been passionate about creative writing since I was a child and love to share the enthusiasm with others.
What I’d like from the AMED network is…
The opportunity to facilitate and attend workshops using Creative Writing for Therapeutic Purposes (CWTP).
Also to meet other people in engaged in creative writing and potentially to apply this in the business community.
What do you do for your own development?
At the moment my main focus is to complete the Masters degree. This experience, together with my work for my employer, Tomato Tutors, provides an excellent opportunity to use creative writing in a broad range of areas. For my own personal development I enjoy attending/participating in writing workshops and other similar events.

Welcome to the AMED Network. I'm looking forward to meeting you during the 8 June AMED Writers' Group session. Meantime, how about posting an image of yourself on your personal AMED page, so that you and your new-found AMED colleagues can connect more readily over time/space? Very best wishes for your writing. Bob
