THREE YEARS AGO, I sat at the top of a mountain in The Lakes, with a bit of an idea. Unshaped, unstructured and in the midst of a few of my own bits and bobs. Looking out at a landscape, some of which I had just conquered but mostly at a landscape that provided much more opportunity.

ONE YEAR AGO, I sat in my office in Burnley, with a bit of an idea. Unshaped, unstructured and in the midst of a few of my own bits and bobs. Looking out at a landscape, some of which I had just conquered but mostly at a landscape that provided much more opportunity.

12 months ago roast ‘n’ toast was born. Here we are 50 episodes later (we had a Christmas chill).

A space created in an uncertain landscape, full of opportunity (most of which was unknown).

100’s of people sharing stories, conquering some stuff and looking out over their own landscape to plan the next part of their journey.

Most of all roast ‘n’ toast has helped me.

I’ve added connections, not just colleagues.
Taken time to breathe into a business and not just rush a project.
Built something driven by purpose not following the noise.
Got it right AND got it wrong (that’s ok).

I used to get caught up in the numbers and needing to know what we were doing was ok. roast ‘n’ toast is our OK!

Thank you to everyone who has built, attended, shared, sat loud, sat quiet, been once or been every week. Thank you for the public shoutouts and the hidden ‘are you ok?’ Some have done lot’s others have just passed through. EVERYONE is now a connection.

If we haven’t seen you for a while, it would be great to see your face. If you haven’t toasted before, drop me a message and get involved. There’s only ONE RULE…Come As You Are.
