C&L goes back to its roots!

On a positive note…

The ‘local boy makes good’ card was played by the  Hexham Courant this week in hope of m.h Coaching and Leadership gaining various pieces of business within the Tynedale and Northumberland area. As Maurice was born in Hexham, he hopes this will bring him back to his roots and hopes to bring his education side of the business to schools within the area – including his former school.

Have a look at the story here….. Maurice Kicks off new business venture

The less good news…

Friday last week was the most dissapointing day so far within m.h Coaching & Leadership. The business was rejected on two proposals due to budget constraints within the two clients and unfortunately, because of this, the pub retail proposals were unable to go ahead.

As Maurice is a confidence player, it took him a few days to pick himself up from his first business rejection….

The GOOD news…

However, this week saw C&L’s first busy season with major discussions, proposals and workshops.

This week saw a meeting between C&L and executives from Manchester College, who are the inmate training provider for HM Prison Service within the North East. The pitch from C&L included plans to bring aspects of the football in the community section of the business, enterprise learning (how business works) and customer service training. All these aspects cover three of the four areas of m.h Coaching and Leadership. Maurice has pitched and is currently awaiting response to proposals…so look out for response on future posts!

This week also saw m.h C&L’s first corporate day with Otis Lifts UK, the world’s leading elevator manufacturer. Following a successful bid, the corporate event consisted of a training session including various football skills and drills, related to business ethics and team development. The afternoon session consisted of management theory that exist within Otis Lifts and their competitors. Feedback has been extremely positive and there is every possibility that a medium term relationship will be developed between m.h C&L to provide this style of learning.

Keep watching the blog for photos and comments from the corporate day.

    All sounds extremely positive, apart from the two business rejections. Tell Maurice to keep up the good work, and great post! x

    The first rejection was bound to be a little disheartening…but he has carried on and seems to have had a lot of luck with the other businesses…so things are on the up!x

    Fantastic if I’m honest I did not realise how much Maurice has been working over the past few weeks, not nice to hear about the rejection but you have to take the good with the bad. Looking forward to next post.

    The businesses that he has approached have all given him very positive feedback,which is a good sign at these early stages…lets hope it continues to improve as time goes on.

    All businesses have their ups and downs, however the goods make you forgot the bad. Tell him to keep his chin up :).. I’ll keep watching.

    I’ve found this interesting since you told us about it in class. It’s a shame that two proposals were rejected because of budget.

    Can’t wait to hear more. Have you read Naked Conversations? If you haven’t, most of the book is interviews with business bloggers – like you – and it reminds me of the things you talk about in your posts.
