Throughout July I have posted a series of business thoughts that comment on the world today. Obliquely political I have posited a view linking business and women’s empowerment and observed the responses on social media. There have been four themes with one underlying message, that of friendship. Despite her FLOTUS tenure regretfully coming to an...Read More
There is no question that Jane Austen is rooted firmly in our hearts as one of the greatest novelists of all time – not ‘among the greatest living authors’ though you understand – following a somewhat unfortunate slip of the tongue by MP, Andrea Leadsom, as she spoke in Parliament last week following the unveiling...Read More
It was just the other day, as I was writing the blog before this one, that I found myself pondering the question, ‘Who is Confucius?’ Now it might strike you as odd that such a seemingly random thought would pop into my head and then compel me to write about it. So let me explain....Read More
I write in you every day. You listen but never criticise. You welcome each day with a fresh, crisp page and never turn your back on yesterday.
