1. 029 Need a cuddle? You might need to learn all about the 'Cuddle Monster'. We're making conversations about cuddles count! Making Conversations Count (Wendy "Conversations Queen" Harris) 20:11

We have all asked the question ‘If not now, when?’, right? 

That was definitely one that was pondered by author and HR specialist, Mandy Ward.

She turned a difficult situation to her advantage when Covid-19 hit in 2020, by launching her own business “Write My Book“.

Mandy is the creator of Oxy the lead character from one of her books ‘The Cuddle Monster‘.

It’s a delightful tale that touches small children and helps shape their confidence through cuddles.

It seems to us that we are all missing cuddles, no matter our age so we are really happy to share this conversation and encourage everyone to cuddle those that we can.


Wendy is certainly looking forward to her next cuddles.

And she really wants to cuddle everyone who’s been sending emails into the show recently.

Thank you for these.

Keep them coming.

We love reading them out on the podcast!

Wendy Harris Making Conversations Count Podcast

What can I tell you about me?! I'm very good at getting other people to talk about themselves. Having been in the sales arena for over 3 decades, my skillset has developed to enable others to introduce their services to other businesses. Talking about myself always feels odd.

But here goes. I've made over 2 million phone calls in my career, helped 1000's people pick up the phone and have better conversations which has leaked into life in general, I've created billions of £££'s in opportunities to do business.

I love nothing more than listening to other people's stories and gently guiding people to share their insights with others.

Whenever I'm in training it's always interactive and fun. I truly believe we learn by being involved.

It's why I started my podcast, to share these stories and be helpful to the business community. I also wrote a book with many of my training exercises in it for those starting out as the demands of your cash flow when you get going mean there's often a wheel not oiled as it should be.

For me, conversations is where it all happens.
