RDPI is delighted to announce the launch of Unlock your potential – a year that will change your life, in St Leonards-on-Sea. This programme is the brainchild of Katie Day and Dr Roger Prentis, who together have decades of experience and expertise in the areas of business coaching, training and consultancy, having worked all over the world with many major global organisations including the UN.

Unlock your potential will take you from where you are today to where you want to be. With six months of targeted seminars, supported by six one-hour webinars, the first half of the programme will equip participants with the key skills, strategies and confidence to realise their potential. Realise they have bucket loads of potential, and realise this potential by bringing it out into the open. The seminars are unlike any you have attended before. These sessions are aimed at getting to the core of who you are, exposing your brilliance and catapulting you into your future. All participants have the opportunity to enter the competition at the end of six months, where the top ten will be invited to pitch their business in front of a selected audience, including potential investors, at a London based prestigious venue. The pitches will coincide with the Awards ceremony with an exciting package for the overall winner.

As if this wasn’t enough, after the six month programme, you will be supported for a further six months via the monthly Mastermind Groups. These will bring together everyone on the programme to share successes, embed the learning, talk through any challenges and receive independent and supportive feedback.

The programme is being offered at the introductory price of £150 per month, or if paid in advance, £1250, which represents a saving of £550.

The launch of Unlock your potential will be on 30th June in London, with the full programme starting in St Leonards-on-Sea in early September. For more information, contact Katie or Roger at unlock@rdp-int.com


Here’s a trip down memory lane or if you moved here recently this is how Hastings and St. Leonards on sea was in the 1980’s. As you can see in this raw footage a great deal has changed over the years such as Priory Meadow shopping centre being where the cricket ground in the footage was. Its over an hour and a half long so you may want to skip through it but its a sure sign of the progress the area has made. From what we can see it is the only footage available on-line so might one day be if historic importance to the town and area so enjoy this retrospective of Hastings in the 80’s.

Hastings Business Centre has become one of the first business centres in the UK to install heart defibrillators on site.


HBC’s Jim Christy and Mish Standen check out the new life saving equipment installed at the Innovation Centre.

The company which has bases along the south coast, has purchased one automatic external defibrillators (AEDs) from DOC UK. The device is portable and automatically connects a user to a call centre where medically trained professionals will guide them through the de-fibrillation process.

Jim Christy, director for the Innovation Centre in Hastings said: “As a business our very first priority is the safety of the people on our site.

“Hopefully, the equipment will never need to be used, but even if the defibrillator never leaves its case, it will act as reassurance to the thousands of people passing through ours doors every year.”

Vincent Mathieu, managing director of DOC, said: “Every six minutes, someone in the UK dies of a heart attack. Sadly cardiac emergencies are a huge risk, so it is great to see firms such as the Innovation Centre leading the way.”
