Training and rewards


Well, its always one thing after another in swift succession.


I have had a fantastic few weeks on the final few days of Common Purpose, the Matrix Leadership Programme.


I feel positive that the insights and opportunities gained will prove to be invaluable in leading Giving World Online to a global platform in the future.


Just to give you a feel for the diverse nature of the programme the group has faced challenges and been privy to knowledge from many arenas not least the Police Force, BT, Leicester City Council, The Towers, Djanlogy College, Nottingham, Nottingham University and Chilwell Army Barracks to name only a few. The varied aspects of leadership styles in different organizations are priceless tools especially in our ever changing and technological society.


In addition to our learning goals we had a stupendous time at the Leicestershire First, celebratory event held on the 3rdJuly at County Hall. The event was attended by most of the movers and shakers of Leicestershire society which is a credit to the Leicestershire First Trust and its Trustees headed by Maurice Thomspon.


Leicestershire First is a charitable trust launched by Maurice and Vivien Thompson, the aim of which is to promote leadership, excellence and citizenship in the community of Leicestershire.


As winners of the Leadership award we had the privilege to be interviewed by and had our photo taken with Martyn Lewis (watch this space, awaiting the photos).


You can view the videos of the winners of the Leicestershire First awards on the Leicestershire First website and  the Community Channel later this month.


Tomorrow we’ll be in London again for meetings around raising the profile of Giving World Online to a national platform.
