Next free workshop: 'Introduction to Creative Group Journaling/Life-writing' 16 November, 6.30-7.30pm: https://the-dots.com/events/introduction-to-creative-group-journaling-life-writing-8191 I'm lucky to spend my time encouraging, inspiring and enabling people to write - to achieve their goals, writing or otherwise. I particularly enjoy helping people to find their voice, to build their confidence and to get in touch with their creativity. I do this by facilitating (which is where I'm most at home) groups and coaching individuals. I love writing myself, whether it's a blog, memoir, copy for my website etc. (all of which can be found here: cpsdayoff.com). At the heart of everything I do is the strong belief that we should write because we're compelled to, because we can. We should write for it's own sake and for ourselves first and foremost. All my public workshops can be found here: https://www.meetup.com/Life-writing/events/ I aspire to work with people who inspire me and up my game. My fantasy job is a radio DJ which I've done a little of over the years in a voluntary capacity. For now, my podcast Write Enjoy Repeat (sharing why people love to write in order to inspire others to do the same) is satisfying that itch. For over 25 years I worked for global organisations, largely in brand, marketing and communications. Though ultimately unsatisfied, I worked with amazing people, learned tonnes of skills working as a project manager, content manager and planning manager. I also spent a few years working for Mencap leading a team of co-ordinators to help support people with disabilities into work and volunteering.

- Journey to EmploymentA back to work programme for people who have been long-term unemployed, for whatever reason. I created and ran the sessions for the programme, recruited participants via the Job Centre and supported additional team members. We recruited someone from the first cohort as a volunteer for future programmes which was really beneficial.

- EY global re-brandI worked as part of a team to re-brand EY globally. I coordinated efforts across internal and external functions and finally project managed the re-brand launch and all associated projects for the global function in London. From the smallest details, e.g. 'which logo goes on the water bottles?', to developing training in the use of the new brand (internal and external documentation), developing brand principles, signage, all associated IT considerations and much more.

I run fun, creative writing workshops to get people writing - for themselves first and foremost. I also use writing in my coaching as it digs a little deeper than conversation alone. I want to inspire people to write as a tool for life as well as a means of expression and have a podcast showcasing why people love to write and what they get out of it (Write Enjoy Repeat).
