    Story

    I was once honoured to provide a Seven Habits for Highly Effective Teenagers Course at my old comprehensive school, and fervently wished I had been given such input when I was that age. 'My' students went on to achieve their aims, and I'd like more kids to be able to do that in the future. I will myself be donating funds from book sales and training course income,.

      Dear Friends, With reference to my objective to fund books for delivery to an entire year of school pupils, I have had a setback. Much to my surprise, the school to which I offered the books has declined the gift. I have approached my good friend, Rob Parsons OBE, a charity CEO. On my behalf he is identifying and approaching youth support bodies close to him, who he believes would find good homes for any books we can provide. I have invited my donors to have their donations refunded. None have asked for their money back. (Thank you)

    I'm a retired detective, and in my spare time I taught personal development in-house to colleagues. In 2012 I funded and facilitated a 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens Course at my old school. The students seemed to benefit, but now I'd like an entire year to read the book!
