My 3 Words for 2015

I blogged recently about my New Year’s Resolutions, but today I came across Chris Brogan’s My Three Words. And it got me thinking, so I’ve decided to take part.

It had everything for me: enough shops to entertain me for an entire retail therapy session; enough bars that I haven’t tried […]

Behind the Quirk

Presentations are a great excuse to polish your company image. Recently I was invited to give a 10 minute presentation to my BNI Chapter about myself and my company. Here’s a (slightly edited version) of the presentation. I’m not the most confident speaker, so this gave me the opportunity to brush up on my presentation […]

Making Mistakes

We all make mistakes. It happens to the best of us. Maybe your alarm didn’t go off. Maybe you forgot to write down something important. Maybe you couldn’t keep to your promise of writing a blogpost a day for a month. When it happens, it feels awful. Your boss might be mad. You had an […]
