" Hi Howard, Hope you are keeping well and enjoyed the summer.

I just wanted to get in touch to let you know that I have got myself that new job I was looking for smile emoticon

It's an [X] role with my current employer and is exactly the type of role I wanted.

Thank you so much for the sessions you did with me, they definitely helped me to focus my energies in the right places and gave me the confidence to apply and secure my new job, which is two levels above my current role. I was even able to beat my 6-month deadline by 2 months !"

❝After over two decades with the same company, I found myself at a crossroads in my career. I found it hard to see where I wanted to be for the rest of my career. Howard helped me to see which path I needed to choose. After 4 sessions with Howard, I could see where I wanted to go & maybe that place wasn't attainable immediately, but I now have a clear path & I have more confidence in my abilities and I'm looking forward my career.❞

Hi Howard,

I hope all is well! I just wanted to drop you a line to say thank you for your help last year!

Since we last met 12 months ago, I have transformed my 'job' into a proper working/enjoyable life choice! I am still working in the telecommunications industry in a new role but since my partner and I have bought a restaurant in Santry and all is going well so far.

Your advice has been an invaluable asset to me and I owe you a debt of gratitude.

I am sure all is going well with you and I hope to see you again!"

❝I first met Howard Hughes during a four-hour workshop run by my employer on Professional Boundaries in Care.  As the speaker he was very professional and used a relaxed approach, engaging us all immediately.  As a Personal Assistant working on a one-to-one basis I found the group discussions and all the hand-outs and information supplied totally relevant to my work situation.  At the end of the workshop, I had a clear understanding of my professional boundaries in maintaining and protecting the positive relationship between my client and me.❞

❝In mid-October, I attended what proved to be a very inspirational talk given by the life coach Howard Hughes.  I found it fascinating and a real case of learning how to think outside the box.
I had personally spoken of not being able to react spontaneously to invitations since my accident due to inaccessible venues but I soon learnt that it was up to me how I responded and of course could always suggest an alternative option/venue!
The power of positive thinking and primarily expressing gratitude nightly or daily for the positives in my life I find very inspiring. The idea of writing 3 of these daily has not proved difficult at all and they are so beneficial.  I find it is impossible to feel grateful and be unhappy at the same time.
You are solely responsible for how you react to any given situation. This in itself is so rewarding and satisfying, allowing yourself to be the ruler of your own universe. It is you who are controlling all your own reactions. You have complete ownership of every one of your reactions!
Overall it was a very empowering talk and I now have added listing some of what I’m grateful for every night which is definitely enriching my spirit and consequently my life! Thank you!❞
