As I pulled in to Sheepdrove this week, I was instantly reminded of my time as a Connect member in 2014. The sense of excitement, anxiety and the re-emergence of that pesky imposter syndrome were instantly with me. It also recalled the friendships and connections that I had made at my On Your Marks and indeed the personal transition I have been through since; from Connect member to being part of the Wavelength team.

"Not only was Peter’s presentation full of inspiration but he also gave us practical tools that we could take away and apply to our own performance as individuals and as teams. He met the brief perfectly and there is nothing we would change about this session. You could hear a pin drop during the full 90 minutes!”
