Have you ever been double booked or invited to two exciting things on exactly the same date?   Frustrating hey!  I have been invited to speak on the Ann Diamond show – BBC Berkshire at 12.00 today with Maria Millar MP.  Re: ” How to Get Women in Senior Positions and Influence.”  However I already have an important meeting with a new client today which I am excited about.   Keeping your commitments is important to maintain your credibility and reputation.   I do love doing the inspirational talks and debates but it just as important to me to demonstrate practically what I do best.  Showing others how to succeed in their professional roles . For business, my paying clients are critical for enabling me to share my knowledge with a wider audience.  For which I am grateful.   How about making your  lunch time priority the Ann Diamond show today?  http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/playlive/bbc_radio_berkshire/

I was really excited to be invited on Radio Berkshire as we are working hard to get more exposure of the website www.leadatwork.com.

Radio BerkshireSusanne Courtney, who was standing in for Sarah Walker was great. She was warm, friendly and curious. Her natural bubbly personality was very reassuring. She smiled constantly and it just shows that when you smile this comes across even on the radio. So this is a great tip for all of us – remember to smile.

It was an excellent opportunity to spread the word to help more women achieve their potential.

But, guess what? The one thing I failed to mention was the website address – Arrrrh! I just got caught up in the moment and failed!

So to encourage myself I am remembering that: 

  • There is no failure only feedback! 
  • No opportunity is ever wasted 
  • Don’t wait until everything is perfect, get started now, with each step we grow more skilled and more confident….

I have also been encouraged by the people who listened – even from China! Thank you Sarah, and congratulations on your new position as a Finance Manager in a big local private company for 500 people, that is great news. And thank you for reminding me that I said in the interview, “If we think we can, then we can; if we think we can’t, then we can’t.”

Help more women to achieve their potential, tell your friends to register at www.leadatwork.com.

Oh how we women know how to juggle!  I have had an up and down week: I have recovered from an annoying 24 hour sickness bug; juggled my work commitments which have been rewarding; and my highlights, I am now preparing for a fun Centreparcs half term holiday with my family.

Please tune in next Tuesday 27 October 2009 to hear me interviewed live on BBC radio.
