Coach wins award for keeping businesses thriving during Covid


A Leicestershire business growth expert has won an award for keeping the region’s small and medium-sized businesses thriving during the Covid-19 pandemic. Mark Jennings (pictured)


achieved best client ratings for all ActionCOACHes across the central Midlands in what has been one of the most challenging years for businesses. Recognising 100% satisfaction


from all clients in a recent survey, he was presented with the award virtually at the global coaching franchise’s annual conference. With clients ranging from


sportswear manufacturers, logistics enterprises, signage firms and security specialists through to wealth management advisers, Mark said 2020 had not been an easy ride by any stretch, but his clients had stayed focused and determined.


“My clients have been learning


and applying the knowledge that has not just enabled them to survive, but to thrive now and beyond this pandemic,” he said. “A number of them in the hospitality sector have certainly


Creative62 leads rebrand for charity


One of Leicestershire’s oldest charities, Mosaic 1898, has collaborated with creative agency Creative62 for the charity’s rebrand. Mosaic 1898 helps over 1,000


people every week in Leicestershire, promoting inclusion, equality, choice, empowerment and dignity to children and adults with a range of disabilities. To celebrate the charity’s 120-


year history, Creative62 designed a new vibrant design and logo, alongside marketing materials to make its presence on social media even stronger.


Mosaic 1898 CEO Zoheb Shariff


said: “Mosaic is well respected as one of Leicester’s oldest charities - but that’s no reason not to embrace change. We’re ambitious and forward-thinking. The new brand reflects our people and our mission.” Creative62 managing director


Mark Robinson added: “We’ve approached the rebrand with the same creativity and innovation that we’d use for our commercial clients. Mosaic has so much to offer and we wanted to make sure we showcase it in style.”


Centre for sustainability


Loughborough University will lead a new Government initiative to revolutionise resource management in the UK’s £32bn chemical industry, building a greener and more efficient economy. The Interdisciplinary Centre for Circular Chemical Economy – based in


the university’s Department of Chemical Engineering – will involve six other universities. It will also include more than 20 industrial and international partners, as well as SMEs and national and local initiatives. The Loughborough Centre will develop technologies to reduce reliance


on fossil resources by creating methods to recover and reuse olefins – ingredients used in plastic production – from domestic waste products and CO2 emissions. In addition, it will explore ways to encourage public acceptance of renewable technologies while working with policymakers to enhance attitudes towards the circular economy. Professor Jin Xuan, who will lead the centre, said: “According to the UN,


in order to fulfil our basic needs chemical production needs to double over the next 10 years – but that is simply not going to happen unless we adopt a new approach. “We are proud that our centre is a strong and effective academic-


industry partnership. Together, we will develop an understanding of the key barriers and drivers to maximising circularity within the chemical industry.”

taken the brunt of the impact. Every business has without doubt been affected by the pandemic and it’s been about keeping my clients focused and looking for opportunities as history shows us we often arise out of difficult times. With adversity comes opportunity.”


‘There is a direct correlation between a healthy body and mind, and healthy business’


Mark, who in 2018 was made a


Global MasterCoach by an international panel for ActionCOACH and is regularly one of the top performers in the UK, is now putting clients’ health and wellbeing at the top of the agenda.


A report published by Deloitte


early this year revealed that poor mental health in the workplace cost UK bosses more than £43bn in 2018, a rise of 16% in two years. With Covid-19, this figure could rise starkly. “It’s vital for business owners to


strive for their business goals,” said Mark. “However, they must take steps to ensure they are looking after themselves at the same time. “There is a direct correlation


between a healthy body and mind, and healthy business; burn- out helps no-one. “There is now a far better


understanding of health and wellbeing, especially with what’s happening with Covid-19 and while it’s always something I have touched on, I’m now looking at running regular online workshops with energy management at the forefront of discussion.”
