Rosalyn Palmer PR’s new board director Jo Lynn is feeling a little
hot under the collar. As part of her initiation, Lynn has been coerced
by her new employers into agreeing to walk a 15-foot course of red hot
coals - bare foot.
The agency’s founder and managing director, Rosalyn Palmer, and her
husband and finance director Mark Palmer, were converted to the benefits
of fire-walking by a client - US personal growth guru Anthony
The Palmers are now determined to put their staff through the same
So Lynn will join fellow self-growers on a short course run by Robbins
in Brussels this summer, entitled ’Unleash the Power Within’.
Unfortunately, there are no photographs to show you of the Rosalyn
Palmer directors treading hot coals. Cameras are banned from the events
because, Lynn tells me, the flash stuns walkers out of their trance at
which point they fall over and become horribly disfigured.
Lynn seems unfazed by her new employers’ eccentricities, which include
the office dog, Poppy PR. ’We’ve all got quite linear training - we’ve
been feng shuied and we still make money,’ she says defiantly.
