“In Business Is It Time To Ask Yourself: ‘Where Did I Go RIGHT?’”
The pandemic profoundly affected both Darren O’Conor’s business and his family.
The flourishing agency his wife Alex and he have run for 25 years faced some client challenges. And recently, like many people, they both sadly lost some close family members.
“I lost my father, Alex lost her mum, and last year Penny, our niece, died. They remind you of the importance of having a sense of perspective about what you are doing,” learning designer Darren tells me.
Despite the economic downturn that hit so many other UK firms hard, Alex & Darren’s well-established business, Passe-Partout Consultancy, has grown from strength to strength.
“The pandemic changed our whole perspective. It’s been the most rewarding period for us. We have been able to turn things round and help far greater audiences than ever before,” he says.
“’Where did I go RIGHT!?’ – People don’t ask themselves that question very often!”
Passe-Partout Consultancy empowers clients to make a significant personal and professional breakthroughs. Darren’s done the same.
When things aren’t going well, so many business people worry about where they went WRONG. But Darren’s hugely positive and refreshing perspective turns that upside down – he went RIGHT!
