Since my journey with Life Coaching began I have completely redefined what success is for me and that definition continues to change from day to day.  My relationship with success has changed as well and rather than seeing it as one off big projects I now see it every day in a variety of shapes and sizes.

One of the most important achievements for me to date has been finding a new way of working by finding someone I can work with from a different discipline who complements both me and my way of working, and I her.

I met Varsha Chandarana at a networking event and was intrigued to hear about her work as an ITM teacher of The Alexander Technique.  Initial discussions left us both feeling that we could work together so we arranged to meet over coffee.  After just a couple of hours not only did we know that we could work together and were amazed at the results that we could both achieve, we had an idea for our first workshop together.  Just 10 days later and we had sold our first workshop that was delivered on the 2nd September 2008, 7 weeks after that first cup of coffee.

The ITM Alexander Technique and Coaching work so well together as they both start with thoughts and are very personal techniques with the client at the heart of our work.  We have now run several of our Pitching with Purpose and Personality workshops and have seen business owners take ownership of their pitch.  Rather than learning a set of ‘rules’ to use they have invested themselves into what they have to say, they have become freer in both what they say and how they say it and the end result has been that their passion, belief and integrity has shone through and their pitches have been just awesome.

Feedback tells us that some of our clients came to us dreading network events and having to get up to do their minute but after a days work they have left the workshop looking like polished professionals with the confidence to match, a huge testimony to the time, effort and willingness that they put into the day.

My learning from this has been that when you find something that works you just know it.  I knew I would work well with Varsha both on a personal and professional level and our methodologies complement each other in new ways at each workshop.  As our portfolio of workshops grows we continue to grow with them and will continue to Pitch with both Purpose and Personality.
