A major grant from the Otago Community Trust has enabled our youth development programme, Turning Point Bridge, to reach hundreds more young people throughout Dunedin. We have teamed up with the Otago Secondary Schools Partnership, Otago Polytechnic and the Trust to present the programme to 30 Year 12 and 13 students from every secondary school in Dunedin.
Some courses have been run in schools during term time, and a number of committed students from a range of schools have attended the courses run during the school holidays.
As well as the Dunedin schools programme, Turning Point Bridge has been taken as far as Fiordland College in Te Anau and Waitaki Girls High School in Oamaru.
The feedback from students has been consistently outstanding, evidence that Turning Point Bridge, combining our personal development skills and business experience with up-to-date industry and career information, is a unique course in high demand that is making a positive difference in the lives of many teenagers throughout Dunedin and Otago.

In the course of my work, delivering team development workshops, personal development courses or one-to-one coaching in the workplace, I see every day the impact of this new normal. People are struggling under very heavy workloads due to the ‘more with less’ paradigm, but, compounding this is the fact that life outside of work, for many people, is just as busy and stressful.Read More »
The fundamental truth about organisational change is that it occurs one person at a time, which means it’s as much about individuals breaking old habits and forming new ones (over time) as anything else, and we know how difficult that can be.Read More »
Before I became a facilitator of Turning Point, I was a participant. When the course finished, I felt so buoyed by the experience, so full of hope and determination. I felt empowered. I want to share a small yet important change I’ve made in my life recently.Read More »
In my work developing people, I often ask my clients, “What do you want in life?” I have asked hundreds of people that question, and the answers are always variations on the same theme: “Inner peace,” “To be happy,” “To make a difference.” Shifting the focus from the external world to the internal empowers people to make changes within themselves.Read More »
