Life in a Day captures what’s wonderful

July 6, 2011


If you haven’t seen anything of Life in a Day then do. It captures beautifully the world without borders (and the world with it) that we live it. Shot by members of the public one week after the world cup finished last year, it shows the peoples of this planet going about their business and […]

Collaboration’s what ya need!

June 21, 2011


If Roy Castle were still alive today then I’m sure he’d rewrite his famous song to reflect the word ‘Collaboration’ rather than dedication. Now, if you’re under 40 then it’s possible that you’ll have no idea what that reference is to – so google it. Or watch this! Anyhow, it seems to me collaboration is […]

The Chief Marketing & People Officer anyone?

February 10, 2011

Zuckerberg joins Stalin and Dubya

December 16, 2010


So Mr Facebook must be well pleased today. Not only is Glassdoor listing his company as the best place to work, but he is also Time’s Person of the Year. He’s joining a list that includes Stalin, Hitler, Walis Simpson and George W Bush – not exactly popular in their own right. So what is […]

Susan Boyle and The Big Society

December 9, 2010


So Susan Boyle is now as big as The Beatles.  So, why is it the case that the typical 47 year old Scottish virgin, as the LA Times put it, has achieved such feats where the likes of U2, Madonna, Take That and REM failed? This isn’t some written piece aimed at deriding Ms Boyle. […]
