Well, that’s it from me for another year.  And what a year 2019 has been.

In the last 12 months we’ve:

Presented to over 25,000 people

In 5 countries.

Published 42 newsletters

Written a dozen press articles.

Coached 23 people.

Had quite a lot of success on LinkedIn, with this being my most popular post – racking up over 42,000 views.

If we’re not connected on LinkedIn yet please link with me.

Had less success on Facebook but everyone loved this

Completed my first Webinar training (encore available here)

Presented and produced 37 training videos.

Lost an incredible 22lbs…. found 16 of them.

Produced a new one-minute showreel which I believe captures the essence of me doing my thing live.

Received the glorious news that next year Christine and I are going to be Grandparents.

Wrote half of two new books. Probably should have written all of one!

Enjoyed 115 train journeys… not bad out of 162.

Recorded this short Christmas video message for you.

Be Brilliant!



Please share some of your year in numbers and any other messages below.  We love to see them.

Merry Christmas 

Oh, one more thing.  If you haven’t done it yet, please put 6pm January 9th 2020 in your diary – announcement in the new year.
