Ready to jump? 5 keys to launching your solo career

I was recently invited to sit on a panel at one of Sydney’s leading business schools to share my thoughts on how I had set up my successful consultancy practise. I was struck by the wide variety of people in the room. They ranged from twenty something students to folk in their 50s and 60s. Many had obviously dropped in after…See More

Time to future proof your career

It wasn’t that long ago that you needed a downtown office to do business. A bricks and mortar presence was essential. Corporates traded with other corporates and the little guy could hope for little more than the occasional crumb. Work was done in offices. Meetings (lots of them) took place in meeting rooms. Consultants,…See More

Are you talking yourself out of future success?

“Happy 2018 you magnificent Grand Final winning bastards. Pre season is almost upon us and need to know who is saddling up again for 2018”.This is the text sent to me by the captain of the mighty Newport Rugby Club 3rd team. I am 53 in February. By any measure, that’s old to be playing rugby. It’s easy to give in to a prevailing narrative - “time to hang up your boots”, “most of those blokes could be your son”, “Mate, you’ll be the slowest bloke on the park”. In truth I was tempted to say,…See More

Why you need to shine in the new world of work

I was recently driving back from holidays with my wife, Nicki, listening to Russell Brand’s excellent podcast, ‘Under the skin’. His guest Pankaj Mishra, Indian essayist and author of ‘The Age of Anger’ said something that really resonated.“Most lives end in disappointment”Simple, profound, confronting. But true? We paused the podcast and debated the idea.On balance, I suspect, sadly, he’s right. Mishra frames his argument in terms of a world in which many feel increasingly powerless and…See More

Step out!

I’m a little tired. You probably are too. As we enter the stadium for the last lap, having run our personal marathon since January, the finishing line approaches. What kind of shape are you in? Are you coming home strong in front or a roaring crowd, or more limping across the line, unnoticed?The New World of Work is tough It’s natural to be tired of course. This ‘New World of Work’ is tough. The early breathless excitement about all the possibilities is being replaced. For many, the…See More

Building Influence - Don’t you know that it’s different for girls?

You learn something new every day. I recently met with female leaders in two Australian banks who are very interested in my upcoming Building Your Influence Webinar and my book, ‘Time To Shine’. Intrigued, I asked them if there was a specific reason the thinking resonated. Both thought that women in particular are looking for help in standing out. The language of ‘Your Time To Shine’ is spot on. Just a…See More

Pinch of Thought - Your Move

My wife, Nicki and I spent a decade moving home every year. From North London to South London (ne’er the twain!). From the UK to Hungary. Four more times within Budapest. Across the world to Sydney. Bondi (a DO NOT PASS GO visa imperative for incoming ‘Poms’), Eastern Suburbs, Northern Beaches (twice). Finally we were done! Nine times in nine years, we went through the pain of packing. Occasionally we paid people to help. It sounds like a great idea, but never really worked. You see, packers…See More
