Once of the most valuable things my career in business development taught me was to communicate and make connections. This story is a great example of just that.
My Dad fell in the garden in May during lockdown and broke his shoulder. He ended up in hospital for 3 weeks. As he was ready to come home, we were allocated a Social Worker to coordinate all of his home care. I had spent quite a bit of time on the phone to Dad’s social worker during the course of the summer. During those conversations I would enthusiastically tell Hayley what I study and how grateful I was to have changed careers. As it turned out Hayley’s daughter Rachel works for the Cheshire Wildlife Trust as Digital and Media Relations Co-ordinator.
Cheshire Wildlife Trust regularly write content for the lifestyle magazine, Cheshire Life. Hayley introduced me to Rachel and she asked if I would write an autumn article on bats to be published around Halloween.
It was a pleasure to write on behalf of The Cheshire Wildlife Trust and to have the article published in the October 2020 edition of Cheshire Life.
