Surprisingly Emotional

Last Friday I was awarded the Freedom of the City of London.  It was an honour to go to Guildhall in the City and be guided through a ceremony which goes back it is believed, virtually unchanged, to 1237. As explained by the City of London website: "The medieval...

It’s a two-way street

As the meeting started it hit me - we're all in this together AND the organisation I'd just said "Yes" to work with were also needing to be congratulated! Let me explain... Having been accepted as a coach and facilitator for a US company starting up here in the UK, 6...

Happy and sad

This week I've listened to Minnie Driver, the actor's, autobiography.  It's called Managing Expectations and I just loved it.   So honest, funny, searingly truthful at times and she's someone I've liked from a distance for years. Since...

A different spin

"I'll believe it when I see it."  This hackneyed and somewhat cynical phrase we've heard and used for years.   If you think about it, it implies it's unlikely and you'll be amazed if it happens.  " I'm due a promotion this year, I'll believe when I...
