I can spend hours daydreaming about being an Olympian, remembering what it was like to throw a javelin (teachers running for cover), perfect a Fosbury Flop (set at a record 3m), knock every single hurdle down and break your friend's foot with your best shotput.

Stories I’ve been telling
June 24th 2016 will go down in history as the day when slightly over half the UK population voted to leave the European Union in a misguided attempt to take back what the Brexiters sold them as some sort of Holy Grail of Soverignty and Control. The other (almost) half, were not fooled. Europe will be divided, the UK already is. What can we do to work towards a more integrated world?
The recent murder of Jo Cox and the divisions that the Brexiters and the Remainers are creating are bringing about a nastiness I didn't think was possible in our society and it's making me very sad.
For the first time in history there is a serious female contender for the White House, but if she wins will she have the same influence on women as Maggie did on this side of the pond?
What is a personal brand, why did I decide I needed to have one and how did I go about creating one? I realised that having a company that mainly provides one service isn't nearly enough to tell people about who I am & all the things I do, so a personal branding journey began.
I recently delivered a coaching programme at a group level to the guys at Seal Films in Manchester. Nick Farrimond is one the company's directors
“I feel that the coaching has allowed me to step up in my role and really make the difference.”
It’s always nice to see some evidence that someone who claims to be amazing has actually done things you would consider being amazing, here it is.

Who I’ve worked with
Spot your company name? No, let’s change that! Spot your company name and you don’t know me? Let’s change that too! Give me a call.
Business transformation is about joining the dots. It’s knowing what you want your business to achieve tomorrow while being honest about what it’s achieving today. It’s a map that everyone in the business can read, so they can see what they are accountable for and what the rules are that dictate if they have got there or not. It’s science and magic.
