How can we describe Joanne from Uplift? I’m not sure motivational quite cuts it, it doesn’t feel enough. With her high energy, pink lipstick and big dreams she’s perfect for the work she does. Her optimism knows no limits and it’s infectious to be around. No wonder her learners go on to succeed.
April 2012, April Fools Day, in fact, Uplift started out in business. Some might consider this an interesting launch day, but Uplift’s motto is, ‘fools for some but not for us’. Visiting Joanne and her team at their Sunderland office was such a wonderful experience. Uplift support unemployed individuals to progress and develop into work. The environment, facilities and true passion for everyone to succeed was clearly evident. The ‘everyone has potential’ attitude was a sheer joy to be around.
