You on a good day, everyday

30th August 2017 in London at CodeNode

This SkillsCast was filmed at You on a good day, everyday

Do you know what it takes to be on a good day? Do you know what it takes to be on a good day, everyday?

As a mother of two small children and working full time, Louise set out in search of the perfect guilt free childcare provision, maybe it exists for some mothers but she failed to find hers. Eventually, armed with her wholly inadequate Diploma in Dairy Technology and a blind determination not to look down - she left the world of food manufacturing and took the unlikely leap into the unknown world of entrepreneurship and childcare.

With refreshing honesty and humour Louise tells us what it was really like to start a business from scratch, how she just about clung on as it grew like a weed, collecting business awards, visiting small claim courts and walking on broken glass along the way. After ten eventful years, Louise sold the successful business with an overwhelming feeling of having been spat out the other side and her resilience at an all time low. Exhausted and knowing that she certainly didn’t feel like a success, Louise set about rebuilding and mastering her own resilience and in doing so realised that she could help others with theirs. Today she believes that resilience is a personal thing and less about climbing Everest or winning the Olympics and more about surviving the daily, constant pitter patter of tiny defeats

Listeners will leave with tools and techniques to improve their own resilience and productivity in these challenging times together with strategies to promote resilience and well being in the workplace in the face of corporate change when the team can’t keep up.

You on a good day, everyday

Louise Ladbrooke

I'm a recovering perfectionist, I loved my job and was brilliant at it, life was good then I got a promotion that I hated. I was taken away from my team and shut away to do maths all day... I hate maths... At work I struggled to meet my own impossibly high standards whilst at home I was striving to be the perfect wife and mum. My unhappiness provided the inspiration for me to start my own business.
