Alternatively, email: libbetk@yahoo.co.uk

An overview of the course from Dr K Bradford-Brown:
"The Power of Purpose is one of the most innovative and radical personal effectiveness programmes ever developed. Unlike conventional goal-setting or time-management courses, it offers a unique experiential learning process that allows you to grasp the underlying purposes that either limit or enhance your effectiveness, throughout your personal and professional life.

You find out what is actually happening inside of you when you set out to achieve your goals, and you uncover the hidden agendas that stop you from achieving all you seek to create.

You will learn how to define and express your own deepest life purposes, and bring these to bear on ordinary everyday tasks. You gain a new grasp of what lies behind your power to create, envision, and achieve results that transforms your productivity and galvanises your ability to generate the results you want.

The Power of Purpose shows you how results are actually created, and gives you the power to get on purpose, and stay on purpose, every day of your life. "

Leeds Backs High Speed Rail Link

Local officials in Leeds are part of a group of 11 cities - the others being Birmingham, Bristol, Cardiff, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Liverpool, Manchester, Newcastle upon Tyne, Nottingham and Sheffield - backing a high speed rail link network across the UK.

The proposal would cost £34bn to implement, but could save approximately 30 million tonnes of CO2 over 60 years by diverting passengers from air to rail travel. In addition to the impact for the environment, the plans would have a positive effect on the UK economy, with countless commuting hours being saved. In some cases (for example, London to Glasgow), journey times would be halved with faster rail connections.

There is also a strong call for the network to be extended to reach into mainland Europe, helping us to connect to and compete more effectively with our European counterparts. The only high speed lines we have at the moment are those linking us with France via the Channel Tunnel.
