In 1976 I set up a small private school in Nigeria, and from that time of teaching young children from different countries and cultural backgrounds I noticed that all these young children had the potential to become the very best version of themselves. I knew from that time that it was my purpose to help individuals to "Bring out the Best in Themselves" From that time I followed my passion to help people develop themselves. Their character, their attitude, their morals and values. From that standpoint........
I wrote my first book A Winning Attitude as part of a PGD at Brighton University in 1999. I was fortunate in 2000 to meet a new neighbour who happened to be a director of Suimmersdale Publishing in Chichester. A Winning Attitude pocket size book, based on character and attitude development was piublished and printed in June 2000 and marketed into UK bookshops and Licensed to Jaico Publishing in India for their own markets.
In 2008 I wrote Simple Steps to Happiness and again Summersdale Publshers printed and distributed to UK bookshops. I went onto write seven more titles, all based on Self Help and "How to Bring out the Best in People". All the nine books became MP3 audio and eBooks and are sold by Summersdale Publishing or my own website www.awinningattitude.com and www.attitudepress.com
In 2011, I purchased the rights back from Summersdale for A Winning Attitude and took over self-publishing the book under my own name Hamilton McGinty Publishing with new ISBN numbers for the Printed, Audio & eBook versions. The Book is also published and printed in India (Jaico Publishing) under my License. The books are available at www.awinningattitude.com and www.attitudepress.com
At this time in 2011/2012, I also secured the A Winning Attitude Trade Mark and developed my own Training and Coaching Program of Character & Attitude Development and in early November 2020 the Digital A Winning Attitude Course was Launched. The digital version of the course enables the course to reach Individuals, Teachers, Trainers, Coaches in both small and large Organisations in UK and overseas.
In 2011, I was fortunate enough to meet Professor Pat Preedy who was a headmisstress in a private school near Basingstoke. She admitted she was using A Winning Attitude book quotes in her school assembly. Her love of my little pocket size book brought us together to partner and develop A Winning Attitude Parent Workshop "How to Bring Out the Best in Your Child". The course is Cache endorsed and designed for Teachers in Nursery and Primary Schools to deliver to Parents in one full day or over a number of weeks to suit Parents timetables. The Teacher receives a certiicate and the Parent a certificate of attendance. In 2019 we converted the Limited Company into a AWA Community Interest Company. www.awaparentworkshops.com. This course is now a digital product being sold via Laser Learning into Nursery & Primary schools in UK and internationally.
As we are now a Community Interest Company it is our ambition to attract Funding and/or Sponsorship in order to offer the AWA Parent Workshop FOC to schools in the most deprived areas of the UK. Please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank You.
