My aim is to offer you an
insight into my world through my eyes.
Hi, my name is Paul Gill and I am grateful to have this opportunity to share with you the life I lead and hopefully help and inspire at least one person as I tread this path through life.
My paid work is with a great and leading company within the MPS sector. M2 UK are first class in all areas of our industry and are able to deliver on time, every time.
My role within M2 is two-fold - Learning & Development Manager supporting all staff within the organisation and my secondary role is as a Regional Service Manager heading up a team of Service Engineers covering an expanse of area from Carlisle to furthest North mainland Scotland and more recently into the islands of Scotland, which brings with it new challenges.
Just recently my L & D role has become more of a forerunner out of the two roles. M2, like many companies are going through Lean processes to help us to become more efficient at what we do best. I manage an L & D Department of three staff as we continue to embarking on new territory within the Virtual Learning Environment. We are engaging in many new and exciting projects whilst building on our already very successful learning portal.
Up to a couple of years ago I was involved as a volunteer supporting a prestigious Scottish Public Service provider, St Andrew's First Aid. Through my St Andrew's First Aid volunteer work I have undertaken courses and training in First Aid and Life Saving Skills and was very fortunate to offer support and care to the public at many events throughout Scotland. Each year rewarding 650 hours plus of volunteer public service at events as well as in depth training in both hard and soft skills.
On my journey, both in the volunteer and work arenas, I have learned a great deal and not least becoming COLF accredited and looking at new ways of engaged learning within the workplace.
I am hoping to share some of these experiences with you.
When our second Daughter came along in March 2013, I took the decision to take a break from volunteering so I could be a bigger part of both my Daughters growing up, something I greatly missed out on with my three children from my first marriage and deeply regret as the clock can never be turned back.
I will at some point head back in to volunteering in some guise or other - it is after all, very infectious!
I live in Greenock on the West Coast of Scotland near the River Clyde with my Fiance, Jackie, two children, Alex and Madeleine and two dogs, Isla and Odie.
