Welcome to the Putting the F in Fun podcast. We're Vicky and Dave and we're about two things...

Adding VALUE    &    Having FUN

We take a fun and irreverent look at different aspects of business and life as well as delivering value and learning.

Apr 28, 2022


When you get out of your comfort zone, great things can happen (except if you jump off a pier dressed as a naughty nurse!) We get out of our fur-lined ruts in this episode by recording a completely unscripted podcast. What could possibly go wrong (not a lot as it happens!)

So, what did we chat about…

  • What does it mean to get out of your comfort zone?
  • Toastmasters – and not the men in red coats
  • The Birdman (or woman) of Worthing
  • What a diving board has to do with stating a business
  • 50 things to do when you’re 50


Toastmasters – get the confidence and competence to be a great public speaker
