The First Step

July 30th, 2011

The car and the kids are packed and ready to go for our six-week adventure around Europe.

Our route is somewhat fluid although we have some fixed points along the way. Starting point is Santander and finish line is St Malo. In-between we have a week at the Italian Lakes and a week at Annecy. Where we go along the way will depend on what democratic agreement the family come to (my family find that hard to believe!).

The aims and objectives are:-

  • To have a lot of fun and very special family time.
  • For my children (and me!) to learn the art of travelling on a budget.
  • To manage whatever conflict situations arise.
  • To provide inspirational leadership
  • To practice my mediation skills in order to ensure we all peacefully co-exist.
  • To come back totally refreshed and raring to commence my new venture.

To see how we are getting on keep checking the blog.

It’s always been an absolute pleasure to work with Dionne.  She is always professional, prompt to respond and looking for a constructive outcome in every situation.  We have greatly appreciated the work she has done for us. Working with witnesses in what can often be challenging circumstances requires a high level of emotional intelligence and skill.  Throughout Dionne managed every meeting with professionalism and sensitivity, working towards a constructive outcome for all parties.  Her communication was prompt and focussed and allowed the company to entrust her with managing a complex situation greatly enhancing the value to the business and to managers involved.  This is an incredibly challenging environment and Resolution at work and, Dionne in particular, have delivered for the company without fail. The value gained from being able to trust Dionne/Resolution at Work to manage complex casework has been immensely valuable to the organisation.  It gives an independent and professional credibility to the process and enhances the reputation of the business as a result.
