Stories I’ve been telling

These stories take 5 minutes or less to read. Enough time to give you a mental break from what you are doing and focus on something else, perhaps with a coffee, buttie or glass of wine depending on the time of day. If you are inspired to add to the story please do via Twitter or LinkedIn, looking forward to hearing what you have to say.

A Thought for Food

“Thoughtful actions have a big impact, and there is no time to wait. The goal of this toolkit is to provide support and sample materials for Neighbourhood Council leaders and members to accelerate sustainable action in their communities”. After looking for the Sustainability plan for Warrington, I had a look for one that seemed to engage the community and found that despite the Trump years, Mayor Garcetti, had tried to do that.

I am a change agent by profession. 25 years and counting, dedicated to change in the corporate world, system thinking is my thing. But, I rarely get to execute it properly because people feel it is easier to focus on THE one thing that will accelerate change. The problem is, it is never one thing and pretending that we have a headline we can all fall behind frustrates people, loses trust and faith that anything will change and usually results in change fatigue.

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?

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

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.

Leadership Talk for Gen Z and Millenials

I'm a regular contributor to the Uprising Leadership Programme in Manchester. This workshop was to encourage some divergent thinking about what it is to be a good leader today. The session was very interactive which may not come across that well on the slides.
