This post is about fulfilling a promise to someone with promise. LG joined our internal communications team six weeks ago as an intern.  I’ve been line managing and mentoring him. He has a communications degree, some outstanding short-term print and broadcast work experience, and a go get ’em attititude.  But he is also hungry – … Continue reading

Craven Crusts: grab a slice of the community bakery, café and artspace

I’m so proud of Himself.  Not for putting his money where his mouth is or for being a quietly enthusiastic supporter and advocate for something he is passionate about, although he has and he is, but for rolling up his sleeves and pitching in. Over the last few months he’s been working his socks off … Continue reading

Death Row Dinners

http://redlionhunningham.co.uk/death-row-dinners/ We enjoyed a hangover-salving Sunday lunch at The Red Lion in Hunningham yesterday. I always enjoy eating there. There’s very little room for improvement in my book. Which leads me to the Death Row Dinners cards on each table – main function: to ask for feedback – subsidiary function: prize draw to win your … Continue reading

Why Doesn’t Essex have a Destination Food Festival?

Inspired by this weekend’s visit to Ludlow Food Festival (which was brilliant), I was thinking that (my native) Essex should have a destination festival at least as big.  There’s enough quality food.  The countryside is just as beautiful, but in a different way.  It’s very accessible.  What’s stopping it? Off the top of my head it … Continue reading

Advanced Subsidiary GCE Unit – Applied Business

I have just refound the OCR A-Level paper in which my name is used – thanks to Mrs Parkes. It still makes me giggle. A wide range of friends have been name-checked! Unit 4: The Impact of Customer Service ‘However, after a few weeks it was evident that Adam’s administrative and interpersonal skills left a … Continue reading

Very Slow of Me

Why, oh why, oh why, oh why (to quote Points of View) did it take me this long to realise that there’d be a WordPress app for my phone? How very slow of me. You can expect a lot more drivel from me now. And a bit of a rethink on what I blog, what … Continue reading

Who do you want to work for?

Recently it struck me that we have been selling in a presentation about values creation wrongly. The main body is fine – all about linking values and behaviours and perception – and we’ve been getting there in the end. But we’ve been starting on the wrong foot by showing a number of logos and asking … Continue reading

Turning Over a New Leaf

Turning Over a New Leaf

Right, this is my declaration that I’m disinterring my blogging mojo.  It’s time to come back. There’s a lot in my head – which it would benefit me to articulate in words (it may not benefit you much though!). Future topics are likely to include: SharePoint Vs Intranet How to evaluate team briefing More on … Continue reading

Asleep – Yeah right

Writing about http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/8104519.stm A linguistics professor was lecturing to her class one day. “In English,” she said, “A double negative forms a positive. In some languages, though, such as Russian, a double negative is still a negative. However, there is no language wherein a double positive can form a negative.” A voice from the back … Continue reading
