Dreams come true as Scarborough RNLI receives a welcome donation

Lifeboats News Release

A personal development consultant has raised £150 for Scarborough RNLI.

Ian Marshall, who runs a training company called Mejma, has donated the proceeds of a coaching course to the charity.

The two-hour introduction to a personal development programme called Achieve Your Dreams was delivered at the Stephen Joseph Theatre last month.

Ian, who was head of Thomas Cook’s national training programme for three years, said: ‘Counselling can be good to help people recover from trauma and unhappiness and get back to ‘normal’.

‘Coaching helps people with specific goals, people who need motivating, training and education to help with specific needs. On an individual basis I use all these techniques tailored to a person’s situation.’

Mejma stands for Meaningful, Exciting, Justifiable, Motivational, Altruistic.
