    The Passion One

    The Passion One

    Jayne Harrison is a qualified executive coach and has over 25 years’ experience in the people development field in mainly leadership and career development.  She is interested in what makes people tick, why they choose the work they do and general wellbeing.  She has just launched the #WellbeingWednesdays series which examines how to stay well (particularly during a pandemic) paying attention to mind, body, soul and work. She has recently qualified in vegan nutrition and in her spare time she’s usually in the kitchen, ‘veganizing’ her favourite dishes.  Food is definitely a passion, as are her dogs and dancing (and sometimes all at once on a Friday listening to Radio 1).
