Gary very kindly offered to come and speak to a group that I help organise – Pudsey Adults with Time to Spare (PATS). I suspect that we are not his usual target audience (mainly aged 60 plus and mostly women). Gary told us his story in a refreshingly direct, engaging and unpatronising way that went down very well with the group. His message that while change can be uncomfortable and habits hard to break it can also be your ‘best friend’ is a timely one at any stage of life. I’m sure his talk will provoke some interesting conversations within PATS.
