Why blogging is an essential weapon in Activating Brand You

I first wrote ‘the blog about my blog’ 2 years ago. I wanted to lift the bonnet on ‘Pinch of Thought’ to show how it actually works and why. My premise – that writing a blog is no longer a nice-to-do, but a business essential. The intervening 24 months have deepened this belief. You see ‘content creation’ is an…See More

Standing out in the Gig Economy

It’s all sweet in the ‘Gig Economy’. These are the findings of a recent EY report, ‘Is the gig economy a fleeting fad, or an enduring legacy?’. Also known as ‘the contingent workforce’, the Gig Economy is where businesses contract talent on a short-term project or even a daily basis to deliver their…See More

Are you really succeeding?

I wrote recently about the power of connection. In an ironic twist, today my internet connection died – predictably at a supremely inconvenient moment. This created a farcical ‘signal quest’ as I frantically ran like an addict from café to café, “do you have wi-fi, do you have wi-fi?” Finally somewhere did. Message sent. Mission…See More

Pinch of Thought - Why connection trumps capability

I recently ran a leadership workshop where I showed Dr Brené Brown’s excellent Ted talk. I’ve watched it many times and usually concentrate on the section where she discusses vulnerability. But this time I was struck by Brené’s first…See More

Think Twice to Maximise your Influence

It’s been one of those weeks. Running around like the proverbial fly, continuously aware of a ticking clock… get to the meeting … tick; send that proposal… tick; make those calls…tick; fill up the car … tick; pick up X from Y … tick…We’re all juggling time. There are still only 24 hours in a day, yet, by necessity (and also…See More

Are you playing in the right space?

I am a big rugby union fan. At the weekend, England took on the un-fancied Italians in their annual 6 Nations competition fixture. The ‘Azzuri’ excel in coffee, cuisine and love, but the expectation was for an easy win for the competition leaders. Whilst they ultimately prevailed, it wasn’t without drama. The Italians exploited rule technicalities that enabled their players to position themselves in unexpected places. The English were clearly confused. Their advantage in power, player quality…See More

Pinch of Thought - Crisis of Confidence?

This is the first Pinch of Thought for 2017. That’s shocking! I bang on about the need to create thought leading content once a week. And you do. But I needed a break, a re-set.It’s so easy to tumble from one year into the next. Yes, there’s a brief pause for Christmas/New Year, a slowing around summer holidays for those ‘down…See More

The world needs you! Are you ready?

Funny how some things just stick in your head. I can always remember that the axial tilt of the earth is 23.5 degrees. I can’t remember much else (and often swap the name of my dog and my sixteen year old son when shouting at either), but 23.5 degrees – that’s for life.I mention this, because in 2016, I think…See More
