Winner of Book Competition Announced

By Martin Pearson, 15-Oct-2013

In July, to celebrate the first anniversary of the launch of our new website, we announced a competition to win a copy of 'Facilitating with Ease' by Ingrid Bens.  To enter the competition we asked people to complete the sentence, “The best meetings are when…..” We received many responses during July and August. Some of the responses we received included:

 ...honesty prevails

…you have good conversations that lead to action!

…everyone knows why they're there, they do what they came to  do, and leave understanding the outcome!

…people feel energised and inspired from speaking to each other and ready to take action!

…the purpose is understood, an agenda is set and a clear set if actions result.

In early September we drew the winner.  Frank Doherty who works for Alpha Social Care Training won the book.

On hearing that he had won, Frank said,

“I am really pleased to win! Perhaps my perseverance has paid off?! I have had a long-standing relationship with Kinharvie, an organisation I have learnt from, contributed to and [for which] I have a lot of respect. Amongst my many achieved certificates I am delighted to add a competition win to the list of accolades!”

For those of you who were unlucky this time or missed the competition, keep your eyes peeled as there will be further opportunities in the very near future.
