Collaborative ways and the resource of the future…

The key resource in 2020 for the delivery of healthcare to populations around the world is… people, friends, colleagues; human beings that we need to work with day in and day out to keep ‘the show on the road’, and we didn’t even need a drum roll! A crisis tells us this; facts tell us… Read More

The make-up of great leadership…

“Imagine that the Clash had stayed around to be influenced by 3rd Bass, the Young Disciples and Marshall Jefferson. Or Soul II Soul had been inspired as much by Public Image Limited’s ‘Metal Box’ as Public Enemy or that the soundtrack to Taxi Driver was influenced by Pink Floyd’s ‘Wish You Were Here’. Imagine that… Read More

The Goal…

Once a shared centre of attention, now a little alone, not as pure in its intention, to deliver the difference to make a win or to cause a loss. Twenty four by eight, and yet here it stands, here alone; twenty four by seven, today sharing the field with no other, where overseeing battles, loves,… Read More

Innovation in a new world…

Written as a brain dump of all the things I wanted to cover in the Nimbus Ninety Breakfast Club session that was recorded on the 17th of April 2020. So much to get views on, to build views from and try to create a community of interest around… but I only had 45 minutes so… Read More

My Own North Star…

The creation of a ‘north star’ or a Very Clear Idea. In 2016 I was taught how to have Very Clear Ideas. How weird is that! Now in 2020 it’s a skill that I return to daily; how to have a clear idea and remain clear on it? At work we call it a ‘North… Read More

A Jesus Turtle’s to do list…

An ex exclaimed; you always love shiny and (k)new, I knew that making new was what I was here to do. Now insisted; I can be yours, your way forward to be new, I knew that to renew forwards had ups, downs, lefts and rights and that was going to be a to-do. The past… Read More

Brand studies…

How do we truly create brand appeal in the generation of AND not OR? In particular how does the appeal of shampoo and soap effectively become a brand with such cool, such kudos that simply seeing it on the high street in sunny (or in fact a very rainy) London inspires me to reach for… Read More
