Peter Nicholls - Work Leisure
Peter Nicholls has long passionately believed that the work ethic has a lot to answer for, not because it emphasised the importance of work but because it demeaned leisure as being unimportant and even wasteful. His 30 years of professional work in recreation/leisure development proved to him many times over that a passionate personal interest adds mightily to a person's personal growth and development, generating a ripple effect into all areas of their life, including their work. His workshops, speaking presentations and consultations ooze seasoned experience, laced with warmth, fun and an infectious smile.
