My story

[p]In 2018 Around Noon were named on the [b][i]Virgin Sunday Times Fast Track 100[/i][/b] list of companies and via the Fast Track Network I have been offered an opportunity to 'Strive for Big Change' with an amazing group of People;[/p][p]At Around Noon I'm fascinated by the young people who join the company. Their energy, their drive, their zest for life. I was given an opportunity in business to make mistakes, to learn and to grow. I try to offer that same opportunity to the younger members of our teams. I'm always telling them to push themselves [b]'Out of their comfort Zone'[/b] and now the shoe (or rather hiking boot) is on the other foot. I'm about to understand what it's like to do something completely [b]'Out of my Comfort Zone'[/b]. [/p][p]On 21st of Sept 2018 I will join a group of people and hike [b]100km through the French Alps[/b]. The 5-day hike will see us travel from [b]Tignes to Chamonix[/b] and I'm currently doing my training back home where "The Mountains of Mourne Sweep Down to the Sea". I'd really appreciate if you could help me [b]raise £10k[/b] [b]for[/b] [b]'Big Change';[/b] Some more info below;[/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p][p]Through STRIVE we are raising £1million for BIG CHANGE to back projects that help[/p][p]young people thrive in life, not just in exams.[/p][p][br][/p][p]• Big Change act as a catalyst, providing support at a critical time to accelerate the success[/p][p]of projects and put them in a position to amplify these successes exponentially.[/p][p][br][/p][p]• We are bringing together a group of people, all of whom believe now is the time to[/p][p]Reimagine Education, so that it is setting young people up thrive.[/p][p][br][/p][p]• We believe the time has come to reimagine education, creating systems that prepare all[/p][p]young people to thrive—not only in livelihoods, but in meaningful, fulfilling lives.[/p][p][br][/p][p]• The complex world we live in demands an approach to education that is as thoughtful[/p][p]and interdisciplinary as the problems and opportunities we face.[/p][p][br][/p][p]• We have an opportunity to reimagine education together - unlocking the potential of[/p][p]the next generation- equipping them with the beliefs, skills, knowledge and values they[/p][p]need to thrive in life and play a positive role in the world around them.[/p][p][br][/p][p]• To create the big change required – for young people, economies and society to thrive in[/p][p]the 21st century – we need to work together.[/p][p][br][/p][p]• There is powerful evidence around 1) the importance of early childhood development[/p][p]and 2) Growth mindset and social emotional skills[/p][p][br][/p][p]• Striving is about embracing the journey – learning from setbacks and failure, supporting[/p][p]each other, having that ‘growth mindset’.[/p][p][br][/p][p]• STRIVE brings together a group of extraordinary people from CEOs and entrepreneurs[/p][p]to teachers, ex-gang leaders and artists who live and breathe a growth mindset in their[/p][p]daily life.[/p][p][br][/p][p]• The STRIVE philosophy is: [b]“Growth happens when you step out of your comfort zone,[/b][/p][p][b]magic happens when you do it with others.”[/b][/p]
