Change and Transformation

Life changes. Go with it…

Culture Shock! You usually get it when you travel. You see traditions or behaviours you have never seen before. It makes you feel uncomfortable. But it might have influenced you; it might have made you see the world differently, or understand the way things work. Or even make you think about how you could live a better life.

I saw a fascinating video on LinkedIn this week. It argues that coronavirus is causing global Culture Shock and it will change us all forever. This clip was eye-opening for me. It shows the four phases of Culture Shock in 2 minutes… is it crisis or transformation?

FF15 is already showing signs of transformation! The mentees have spent this month putting their heads together to redesign their charity fundraiser. It will now become the first ever FF15 Virtual Event. Find out more below, along with some more news from me and our amazing NHS volunteers.

Lots of love,

Event transformation!

Our mentees have been working for months to plan a fantastic evening to raise money for FF15 and Girls Rock London… and they are not giving up. The event will now go virtual. The fun, excitement and fundraising will be brought to you online in a totally new experience. You can find out more and register here!

Date: 18th June
Time: 6 -7.30pm

Shaking up

We are all having to shake up our lives, and just go with it! For me, I am shaping a routine that I love. Having the time to walk my lovely little cockapoo means that I appreciate our walks more than ever. And for those that know, I am a keen baker. I am using my new found time to build up my repertoire and try new recipes. I made sourdough for the first time this month. I’ve also taken on 11 short diplomas online. Change can be good and here are a few tips to make the most of this transformation time.

p.s. Don’t forget to share your changes with @fastforward15uk.

Thank you!

It has been incredibly inspiring to see FF15 mentees and mentors volunteer to help the NHS during the current Covid-19 crisis. A special shout out to Eleanor Harding, Megan Anstee, Agnes Morgan, Sophie Huddlestone and Jane Culcheth-Beard. You are all amazing. Thank you. And remember, we are all doing our bit by staying at home too.
