The human impact of Barclays’ LIBOR fixing

The human impact of Barclays’ LIBOR fixing.

The day after the Barclays LIBOR (London Inter-bank Offered Rate) situation became public, I went into my local Barclays branch.  I have banked with Barclays for over 30 years, and I told one of the bank tellers, with whom I have a good relationship, how very upset and disappointed I was with Barclays.  She said that she, and the other employees felt just as bad, just as let down.

And then she described what happened at her home that morning.  Her young son heard the news, and got really upset because he thought that his Mum had been involved in criminal activity and was going to jail.  She explained to him that it wasn’t her, that it was people far senior to her and in a different part of the bank, but he found it difficult to understand and remained upset for a while.

And whilst he’s OK now, it’s an interesting reminder to us of the personal impact and knock-on effect of lack of integrity.

What our students and clients say

Ivona Gordon

Jeremy has a unique approach to bringing out the best in people. He certainly practices what he preaches!  Jeremy is one of a handful of trainers/coaches/practitioners that I would, without any hesitation, recommend to others.  He is knowledgeable, ethical and shows genuine passion for the work he does and how best to serve others.

Mel Larsen

Before doing the NLP course, I had felt I needed more coaching approaches and methodologies. The course gave me a lot of new techniques which I have used to help my coaching clients. Also I was launching my new coaching brand as I was doing the programme and looking back I can see it helped me to set big targets and reach them.

Donna de Villiers

I have had the pleasure of studying with Jeremy, and the NLP he has taught has had a wonderful impact on my personal and professional life.  Jeremy explains NLP in an accessible, easy, manner and for me took away the fluff of the subject.  The practical help on the courses and the smaller classes give you a personal learning environment, perfect for this subject.  I highly recommend Jeremy for anyone interested in NLP.

Simon Fanning

I found the course to be enlightening both personally and professionally.  Jeremy’s experience of the corporate world allowed for a real life perspective to be taken and a focused view into NLP and its application in Business and coaching.

Dave Cordle

I’ve undertaken three major trainings with Jeremy: NLP Practitioner, NLP Master Practitioner and most recently NLP Sports Practitioner. I keep coming back because the training is thorough, ethical and ecological, and it’s academically recognized. As a career coach I work with people at all stages of their career, across levels and across a wide range of industries.

Dara Caryotis

I feel privileged to have discovered NLP, it has changed my life. Understanding communication, the impact of language and being able to change unwanted behaviours has been the difference that made the difference for me.  Jeremy is so much more than an NLP Master Trainer.  It is a powerful rewarding experience learning and evolving with Jeremy. I highly recommend studying with Jeremy, one of my best decisions.
