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.

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.

Human Approach Social Product Lifecycle Management (PLM)

Social Product Lifecycle Management (PLM)

As small businesses develop and grow into big businesses, the ability to maintain the social intimacy of a small business becomes much harder.

Understanding Life Cycles is Naturally Sustainable

Life cycles are real things. All living things have them. We are born, we live and we die. It is strange then that in the world of Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) projects, people rarely mention the actual life cycle of the products or of everything else connected to the products.
