On Sunday Richard and I took to the skies to embark on a new adventure, with a retailing client on the other side of the world, IWP would be taking their first steps into the fair country of Australia.
The bundle of joy that is jet lag was the first challenge faced, but once we won the short battle against waves of wanting to sleep at inappropriate times (my daily ‘tea fix’ certainly helped), we were wide awake and ready to get the project rolling.
I can certainly say we have thrown ourselves into the task, and that a plan is starting to take shape. With most of this week being spent in stores we have been on a ‘mini’ adventure taking to the road to drive the massive distances between locations.
The sheer distance and immense size of the towns is a real eye-opener, so different to home. However, the weather has been a nice reminder of the ‘grey’ of Yorkshire and little reminders of England keep popping up in the most unusual of places…
While you read this we’ll be turning the nightlight out on another exciting day – facing a week full of more ‘mini’ adventures and hard (but thoroughly enjoyable) work. Bring it on!

After helping plan an away-day for Square Chapel Centre for the Arts, Insight with Passion are delighted to hear that the team have come back refocused and rejuvenated.
The General Manager, Linda Franklin said:
“Following our staff away-day, the whole team felt invigorated and refocused from the discussion and activities given to us by Richard (IWP), who proved an inspiring leader and facilitator. Everyone enjoyed it and any earlier doubts about having someone from outside of the organization to lead it, quickly disappeared with Richard’s experienced and informal style. It was an extremely worthwhile day and we all left with a deeper understanding of the value of our own and each other’s roles within Square Chapel. Richard helped us focus on the bigger picture and prepared us for the challenges ahead. We are really looking forward to the next one!”
It’s really good news that Richard was able to help the team recognise each other’s importance as it enables a team to work well together and keeps everyone happy! Insight with Passion looks forward to continuing their work with Square Chapel and also planning more team building events for other companies in the future.
