My name is Jill Boggiss and I live and work in Bahrain (the small Island where the ‘news’ is from). I came to work in Bahrain around 5 years ago but was in fact expecting to be going to live in New York (long story). It took me a long time to feel settled and I have had a few twists and turns in the work story.
Around 18 months ago I set up a business called Inside Change. I help business leaders to enable their workforce to be as effective as possible – I am offering a Wake up approach to skills development in the quest to eradicate the ‘sleep working’ virus that I see all around me.
I am also very interested to help young people to get a good start at work and am developing some work advisory services (head start) to focus people on core skills that employers want and that will support them never to need the Wake up treatment.
I live in Um al Hassam in an apartment with a little pool just outside the door – i love this area as it is very local and quite cosy. My flat has a meditteranean feel to it, which i like too.
I miss my overseas friends and so this blog is really for you – I like to chat and this way you don’t have to there for me to talk to you.
