Final Video Diary with U-do

For the past few weeks, I’ve been rushed off my little feet! I don’t know whether I’m coming or going! So much has been happening! All good but I’m already contemplating retirement… Only joking!

Over the last 4 weeks I’ve been interviewed once a week by the charming, Nitya of U-do about the various aspects of social enterprise development, what has helped HumAnima CIC and what people can look forward to. Last week was my final video diary (I’d never done a video diary, let alone an interview this way so it was very new territory for me! Fascinating though!) and in this one I talk about marketing – which is a continuous learning journey, can be frustrating and so requires much patience!

And just a reminder that places are filling up for our “Animal Assisted Therapy in Counselling” course! Happening at Keele Sustainability Hub, Keele University on the Saturday 6th October! Places are filling up so don’t delay! Email me for more information and a course booking form.

If you have any thoughts or questions, you know where to find me 🙂 info(at)humanima.co.uk

A Dream come True

This famous song just about sums up the magic of recent developments. Jiminy Cricket, the famous Pinochio’s conscience, sang this song whilst gazing up at the stars. Whilst, as a child I found the film quite scary (the fear of being lost, not to mention mislead or being swallowed up by a giant whale…) there were elements of it that I always remembered. Jiminy’s song being one of them.

I have always been a believer in the possibility of making dreams a reality. I came to the conclusion many years ago, that I could not rely on other people to make my dreams come true; nobody knew as well as I do what my dreams actually are. Only I could do that. Hence the years of research, persistence, determination, passion and focus. Yes my goals have moulded and morphed over the years a little but the main premise remains – to enhance people’s relationships with animals, to research that relationship and to make it as positive as possible for everyone involved including the animals!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It is this that has been driving me on for months now and continues to fuel my determination to make HumAnima CIC a success. And slowly but surely things are happening. Good things.

HumAnima CIC is now a proud Member of Social Enterprise West Midlands (SEWM). 

We will be receiving our members certification at the beginning of September and Flossie will be attending too!

Flossie will be joining me at Walsall Independent Living Centre on the 30th September 2012. We will be presenting to both staff and service users at a Children & Family Day about Animal Assisted Therapy and the work that HumAnima CIC is developing.

Recently, I have been interviewed by Nitya of Udo and these interviews have been […]
