Today, Epiphanies partner, Dominic Irvine did a photoshoot for the Waitrose Weekend in-store magazine. It was blowing a gale but photographer Adam Prosser persevered. We’re looking forward to seeing the article some time in January. Dom was the first Northbound finisher of the 2018 Tour Divide, an epic 2750 mile mountain bike race along the continental divide from the Mexican border to Banff in Canada. Dom, along with his riding partner Charlie Mitchell and supported by the team at Epiphanies, also broke the Lands End to John O’Groats record in 2015. You can read about Dom’s Tour Divide experience here and about the record breaking ride, here. Dom uses ultra-distance racing to test aspects of high performance we use with our clients.

It is always great to receive feedback, in this case from a delegate completing one of our leadership development programmes. It puts a spring in our step to think we have made a difference. It’s what we live for – helping people succeed.
“I wanted to thank you for the organising the course, which I can honestly say has been the best facilitated series of events I have undertaken. I have genuinely taken away character defining lessons and shared experiences that has positively had an impact on my leadership style and presence over the past year, particularly in my communication style.
I’d also like to note the professionalism and dynamic engagement that came from Dom and Jo, who were highly intelligent, capable and motivational leaders. Their natural ability to teach, guide and advise was at a level I haven’t experienced before. Moreover, they ran the sessions in a way that encouraged thought, debate and personal reflection which built on each stage of the programme and allowed ‘me time’; an element we often don’t get in our day to day environment.
Highly, highly recommended !”
Our investigations into resilience have stepped up a level. We’re beginning primary research into the changes that occur as a result of sustained periods of effort. These insights will help us evaluate the most effective management strategies people can use at work to maintain optimal levels of performance. We’re scanning brain waves, analysing heart rate variability and measuring reaction times. It’s fascinating stuff. We’ll be posting blogs as the results emerge.
