I love laughing, writing and rainbows. It seems to me that I am fully expressed by a double rainbow: a bold, joyful arch of laughter nurtured by a pastel, more contemplative curve of literacy. Oh, how picturesque!
I relish my imagination, positivity and sense of individuality and enrich these qualities in others. As a perpetual optimist, I am encouraged by the idea that the world is brilliant and our actions and attitudes make a difference.
VibrantKate epitomises all this. Hurray!
Parenthood is my next project, so I will be stepping back from work commitments from February 2014. I'd still love to hear from you, and we can work out how to achieve your projects at a timescale that suits us both.
Luckily, as well as being enthusiastically eccentric, I am a motivated scholar. I have an MA in Modern and Contemporary Writing from the mighty Loughborough University, and am a CLYL – Certified Laughter Yoga Leader (I qualified on my honeymoon, he he!). I am appropriately insured and a member of the Laughter Network for added reassurance.
I believe that colleagues are people too and have enjoyed cheering up EDF Energy employees with a 12 week Positivity for Performance course, improving confidence, assertiveness and cheerfulness! I find it rewarding to help corporations balance professionalism and playfulness.
Random trivia: As I have journeyed towards my self-employed destiny I have experienced some quirky jobs, including demonstrating a remote-controlled tarantula and delivering sandwiches via tricycle. I have an enhanced CRB check. I eat Pea Porridge (my own invention) for breakfast. I was invited into a group of strangers' bedroom to wake them with laughter... oh the joys of a guest appearance in the Big Brother 2012 house! I won a competition from local photographer Love the Image to find the Most Interesting Job in Gloucestershire!
These are some of my beliefs, if they fit what you envisage could vibrantise your event/ workplace then let’s chat and make it happen!
· Fun is for adults as well as children. The world can be colourful, interactive and enticing for grown ups too.
· It is possible to be professional as well as playful.
· Young people have an awesome energy.
· Everyone can express themselves creatively. I specialise in encouraging people to share their ideas; there is no wrong answer!
· Personalised, chirpy emails make the recipient smile.
· The only way to see the world is through our beliefs so positivity makes the world better!
· A shared laugh is like a sound-hug.
Freedom and enthusiasm, jollity and frivolity, participation and innovation: VibrantKate.
