Leaving on a jet plane…

Another Monday, another business trip. I'm leaving for Belfast in about 15 minutes (via a couple of meetings in London), staying just one night, so I can speak at a conference. In the scale of things, this is barely a trip. One night away and I'm not even leaving the country (arguments over a Northern ...

Leaping into another week!

I made it home from Scotland last night, just in time to catch the final episode of 'Bodyguard', the BBC drama that seems to have gripped the nation. Or, at least, the people I follow on Twitter. It was nerve-wracking, in a good way, but once it ended I was far too tired to unpack ...

Feeling rough, on the move.

I'll be blunt - it hasn't been the easiest of weeks. After picking up some kind of virus late last week, I've spent this weekly mostly sweating, coughing, groaning, sneezing and generally feeling very sorry for myself. This was made all the worse because of my schedule. I had to fly to Bucharest on Wednesday ...

Beating the Dublin heat

I'm here in Dublin on business, seeing several clients and working on a bunch of projects across last week and this week. And my visit has coincided with a bit of an unseasonal heatwave. Dublin is a great place, but it really comes into its own in the sunshine. Lots of big, blue skies and ...

Some voice-based shenanigans

I’m once again sending recordings of my voice out into the internet, thanks to Anchor.

A need to disappear?

I've always seen myself as an extrovert. In fact, every assessment I've ever taken (and they are many - I'm a psychologist remember!) pins me down as an extrovert. I love spending time with others and meeting new people, I enjoy discussing and debating my ideas as work in progress, I prefer discussions over email ...

A business travel bug…

I've just spend the last week working in Dublin and, while the workshops and coaching sessions went very well, I managed to pick up an unwelcome dose of flu. It's an unfortunate risk when you're a frequent flyer and I guess it was my turn to pick something up. Being sick when on holidays is ...

Catalan jalapeño madness

I spent Thursday and Friday working in Barcelona - a bit of a monthly routine for me and nothing out of the ordinary. But I did stay at a new (new to me, anyway) hotel and so was able to notice the little differences that make for a nice hotel stay.  Firstly, I had my own ...

The lack of sleep is getting to me…

After Saturday night's surprise visit from the pizza delivery man, I was hoping I'd be tired enough last night to catch up on some sleep. Following an early flight to Barcelona for work, a solid few hours working in my hotel room and a long walk around town, I felt ready for bed. After nipping ...
