Grumbles into Gold

Prompted by an old friend seeking insights on blogging today, the following thoughts emerged... My first attempt at blogging was before "Blogging" was a word, during virtual team working days.

Being Inclusive Amidst Cognitive Diversity

Here's an example (at Board Room level) of being inclusive amidst cognitive diversity.... It's springtime in Scotland, early 1990's.

Why I decided to blog

I've hesitated with blogging as it seemed like it would feel like a burden to have to keep writing. My writing only comes in spurts. But then, talking with my daughter, I realised that if I didn't have at least one sharable insight each week, I was in trouble! My working ethos has been to
