Mike Corfield – Leadership Profile
My favourite thing about being a Gamechanger is… helping people to learn new skills.”
Outside of DIY… I love to watch movies and listen to music. I also do a lot of holistic and wellbeing activities like yoga and meditation and I am a Reiki practitioner.”
My leadership photo explained…
I wanted my picture to represent different parts of my personality and my interests.
My leadership memory is…
When a group of Gamechangers went to Salford University and worked with Occupational Therapist students. I liked leading and planning the sessions for the day with Sue and other people at DIY.
It made me feel nervous at first but I soon got into it and felt better after doing it. The students have never worked with people with disabilities. I learnt how to lead and support a session with others, and encourage people to be themselves and to be silly as well as not to be judgemental with anyone.
We are very grateful for the support of the Paul Hamlyn Foundation for DIY’s Gamechangers programme.
