Becci Godfrey of HorseSense UK says:
I gave up a long time ago worrying about who would attend a Neighs event and started to trust that exactly the people that needed to be there, would be there.
Today’s Networking Neighs might have been a smaller group than usual, but no less diverse and all the more rich for it.
The guest speaker this around was John Handley, CEO of local Homeless Charity, The Bridge Trust.
In his guest speaker slot, John shared that through life experience he had come to realise that “Life doesn’t always go to plan”, but if he had three pieces of wisdom to impart it would be:
1) Have a plan, so you make the most of your life
2) Appreciate what you have, you have no idea how quickly it could be taken away from you
3) Do something you love.
Through his insightful and at points heartbreaking story, we all were called to recognise in our self where there was room to get more out of the opportunities available to us.
As for the horses, they were their usual gregarious selves. Fresh off a corporate training experience, the morning provided a bit of light relief and a chance to show the world how much they love interacting with humans and being the centre of attention.
The guest speaker next month around is Jane Alton, a Consultant Numerologist. We’ll be diving into the number vibration of the name Networking Neighs, and welcoming Neighs founder, Emma Taylor of The Leadership Whisperers. You can get your tickets here: www.networkingneighs.eventbrite.co.uk.
