What my charity trek across Iceland taught me

In my last two blogs I've talked about stretching your comfort zones, having a great team around you and in this, my final blog it's all about some of the things I have learned throughout the whole experience of trekking across Iceland.

The trek itself was fabulous, a great experience, great people and scenery that is out of this world. I managed to create some memories that will last …

How good is the team around you

How good is the team around you?

In my last blog, I talked about comfort zones and this week it's about the team around me, who supported me along the way.

As a reminder, I signed up to trek in Iceland for three reasons:

  1. To raise money for a charity – the Sunshine fund does such great work providing specialised equipment to children with disa…

3 things I learned from stretching my comfort zone

How does a trek to Iceland stretch your comfort zone?

Before I get into that, here's why I signed up to do a trek across Iceland.

  1. To raise money for a charity – the Sunshine fund does such great work providing specialised equipment to children with disabilities in the North East of England, individuals, groups, registered organisations, special and mainstream schools and h…

ApprenTEAship- 6 months on…

6 months into my apprenticeship, where have I been?

If I got a pound for every time someone asked me that, then I’d be able to afford something big; maybe a big bag of crisps; not just a ‘grab a bag’ that you see in petrol stations.

I’ve been on a strictly confidential mission. Planning for what’s to come soon, something big… Something you should tell your family, …

Pains, trains and automobiles

My second month at New Results was if anything more painful than the first. Since I was in my apprenticeship training, I couldn’t make a fair number of cups of tea, which resulted in Mike running in with his Nerf gun yet again. This time it hit me in the eye… I couldn’t see my screen for a good 10 minutes! As if that wasn’t enough punishment; apparently, I must make every single cup of …

Seven years old and seven things I’ve learnt

It's been 7 years since Nevil set up New Results Training, now known as New Results.

Some of you may know his favourite phrase is "every day is a school day" so here's what he's learnt over the last 7 years.

E-Nerf is E-Nerf (My first month at New Results)

My first month at New Results has resulted in multiple bruises from Mike, Nic and Nev’s nerf guns that they keep in their drawers at all times for when I don’t manage to get us 300+ Twitter followers in one day. I am constantly at my desk, and if I even ask for a break: a nerf bullet to the eye is the consequence. Sometimes they say the work that I produce is alright at best, but that’s n…
