Designing a Passport to the Future – Education Revolution

Education revolution passport

I will state up front that I do not have children.  However, 90% of my friends, colleagues and family I regularly interact with do and I am sometimes called into schools to ‘inspire’ their pupils.  I therefore feel I have an opinion albeit one from an outsiders point of view.  But perhaps the fact I […]

How do you get ahead of the waves of change? Create a splash yourself.

Change and the changes that affect us directly are like an ocean.  Vast, continuous, fluctuating and you often can’t see beyond the immediate horizon.  Wave after wave of change keeps rolling in and it does not discriminate or confine itself to industry specifics.  It washes over everything, every one, every organisation.

‘I’m going to kill him’, was my thought. I had just got back from an event which, as I was the speaker, meant I had been on the go for almost 20 hours straight.  It had been a hot, humid and tiring day and I had just got home.  You know how, when you finally […]
