I was in illustrious company with @Viv_Cole , @Philipgreen and @Brighttweet making up the other […]

I did something a few weeks ago that I’d never done before, I handed in my resignation. It’s a strange feeling coming into work knowing that this week is your last. After 11 years with the same organisation these last four days are going to be a mixed bag. On the one hand I’m sad to […]
I always remember Saturday evenings as being magical. It was family time, we’d play games and then be treated to some Saturday night telly. For those that can remember we’re talking TV gold; Beadles About, You’ve Been Framed (with Jeremy Beadle), Family Fortunes (with Les Dennis), Gladiators (with John Fashanu & Ulrika Johnson) and my […]
I remember having a twitter conversation with a couple of members of my network a while ago about innovation.

A comment on Assumed Constraints & L&D Thinking by David Goddin aka @changecontinuum brought the memory back to me but […]
I think the key point that Damian and Perry have identified is how kind of events only attract the “enlightened” minds, so unless the people who attend go away with some kind of common purpose that translates into action, they don’t result in any wider change.

I’ve been inspired and encouraged by the recent comments on my first post but the comment from @Burrough is what has prompted this post.

I had the pleasure of attending my first unconference on the 24th April, the event was the The LnD Connect Unconference and a totally new experience for me. A new experience that I was really looking forward to given the outputs I saw from the L&D Capability in Australia Unconference . The event was very informal and […]
There will be no “I’ve been meaning to do this for ages” or “the time has come” to start my own blog and share my thoughts, observations and experiences. No great “here I am” speech, just a hope that I can share things of interest from time to time.The words in this blog do not […]
