As a specialist corporate escape coach and consultant, I’m passionate about my work supporting 40+ executives and professionals in career transition, as they re-launchan existing career, escape the rat race, become self employed iProsor set up in business. So it’s refreshing to find a publication that’s equally open to new ideas. While GBFR carries the essential news and information you’d expect from ‘a voice for the financial sector’, it’s always willing to look at things from an alternative perspective. As a monthly contributor, I greatly appreciate the receptiveness of the editor, Wanda, when I pitch a possibly challenging story angle to her, and also the feedback she gives me as we worktowards our shared goal – to provide GBFR’s readers with interesting and thought-provoking content that opens up new possibilities and develops knowledge and self-awareness. This is especially important in an industry that is under such enormous pressure and subject to such close scrutiny from all sides, and which urgently needs to embrace new ideas to regain trust and move forward.
