Stories I’ve been telling

Could you win Gold as a corporate Olympian?

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.

What happens when you aren’t in the majority?

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? 

Don’t whip up hatred or division

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.

People do Business with People

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.

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.

Transform Your Business (99 Steps To Achieve Success), by Nina Dar

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.

There are a lot of psychological factors that come into play when delivering change; trust, confidence and the most basic but most important; can we work together? Does that chemistry exist between us to deliver what you need? There is only one way to find out.
