The Next Chapter Getaway

Both Rachel and I have experienced redundancy and the torrent of thoughts and emotions that come with it. Thankfully we both look back on it now as one of the best things that ever happened to us

The latest ONS labour force survey has revealed that the UK redundancy rate is virtually unchanged from a year ago at around 6 per 1,000 employees. With the unemployment rate currently at 8.3%, up 0.5% over the year, and the deepening Eurozone crisis it seems both employers and employees will still be getting to grips with redundancies in the foreseeable future.

Jon Allen and Rachel Bamber, two successful entrepreneurs, who have both experienced redundancy themselves, are taking action to support these people. They are running a unique, 3-day personal development workshop that is designed specifically to help people take full control of the next chapter of their lives.

Quote from Jon Allen, co-founder of The Next Chapter Getaway “Both Rachel and I have experienced redundancy and the torrent of thoughts and emotions that come with it. Thankfully we both look back on it now as one of the best things that ever happened to us. Why? Quite simply because it gave us the chance to take a step back and pursue the careers and lifestyles that we’d always dreamed of.

The Next Chapter is about giving more people the chance to feel positive about redundancy and to grasp the opportunity that it presents. We feel just as strongly about employers – it’s an incredibly tough thing for them too. The Next Chapter gives employers peace of mind that they are providing the very best personalised support they can for their people at such a critical time.”

Set in the tranquillity of the New Forest, The Next Chapter is based on the premise that life is a book and we are the authors of our own lives. The programme is rooted in the personal development work that Rachel and Jon have studied and practised over the last 12 years. For the first time they have married coaching and storytelling techniques with the latest research in neuroscience to create a unique, powerful and practical experience. Delegates will have the opportunity to meet people in the same boat, make sense of their story so far, understand what is important to them moving forwards and create a plan to go and get it. On-going coaching sessions are also included to provide additional support and accountability after the event itself.
