A day out in Brighton
Who else is sick of the coldest March since records
began? How about a trip to the seaside
with bucket and spade? The train will
pull in, the clouds will part and the sun will shine out from beneath the
oppressive sheets of grey. Well that’s
what I was hoping would happen last Friday as my train sped South to Brighton.
Needless to say I was disappointed by the weather that
awaited me. But not, I’m pleased to say,
by the students from the University of Brighton who awaited me, eager to see my one-man show, packed full of
gags, games and tips on how to make waves in the current job market.
I was there to finish off what sounded like a really
interesting day focussing on professional development, which included a number
of past students returning to share their experiences of the workplace since completing
I was warmly welcomed by a really vocal and engaged group, with
a range of interesting backgrounds and experiences to share. It was enough to remind me, even in these
murky March days, that I really do like to be beside the seaside.
