Are you a Believer?

Posted By: Helen Brenton on August 20, 2016

Believe in Yourself.. [a personal blog] Recently, I have found my mind flicking back to almost two years ago, give or take, when I was made redundant [I do hate that expression!] from a good job that I loved, had put my heart and soul into and honestly believed would last forever…..

A taste of France in Torquay? There can be few people in Torquay, or even the country, who don’t know many of the words from the iconic sit-com Fawlty Towers.

Posted By: Helen Brenton on April 20, 2016

LinkedIn – are you ‘In‘… or ‘Out‘? Are you in with the In crowd, or are you missing out on what LinkedIn could do for your and you business? I think we’d all agree that online social networking has exploded in recent years. For many, however, when thinking about social networking, the first, and possibly […]
