News: All Things Learning in business


Determined Rotherham mum Julie Hampshire has set up her own life coaching business to enable people to achieve their dreams.

The former NVQ Assessor received advice from a top business coach at The Rotherham Enterprise Project to help shape her "All Things Learning" enterprise after she took voluntary redundancy from her customer handling trainer job at Aviva.

Julie said: "Being faced with redundancy was hard and I know what it's like to look in the mirror and not really like that person. But I'm an determined single mum who has found the confidence to make a living from my passion - which is helping people.

"It's all thanks to expert advice from my great Rotherham Enterprise coach Julia Millea who enabled me to gain that business acumen I needed."

The Rotherham Enterprise Project offers professional support for businesses and is funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).

All Things Learning focuses on building self esteem by running groups and one to ones sessions which are led by the individuals themselves. The sessions create positivity and energy which comes with success and are catered to the individuals to help with their personal and professional progression - no matter what their level.

Julie's consultancy work with clients can range from presentations to ice breaker exercises, and recently won her a contract for Goals UK CIC – a social enterprise helping to motivate the unemployed with their life-skill training programme.

She was helped to secure a grant of £500 through the project and also recieved inspirational advice from local business mentors at a Tablecloth event organised by the Rotherham Enterprise Board.

Now the future is looking better than ever for the determined business woman and she hopes to bring her coaching into the education system.

Julie added: "For me it is women who really benefit from my sessions, particularly young parents. I hope to go into schools to help provide them with the skills they need to get by in life besides academic qualifications. It's an exciting time for me and I'm 100% glad I set up alone!"

Rachel Clark, of Rotherham Enterprise, said: "Julie is an admirable lady whose kind nature is reflected by her passion for helping others and encouraging them to become the people they want to be – both as a person and professionally. We wish her every success in the future."
