Hot and bothered

The present heatwave is really welcome. I love the sun and I love being out in the heat. We get far too little of either in London, as far as I'm concerned. But the past few nights have been so hot, I've barely slept. And this is with all the windows open and fans creating ...

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 restorative walk in the sun

My old 'friend' insomnia returned with a bang last night. As a result, I got about four hours of sleep - which is approximately 50% of what I need to function. So I wasn't at my best when my alarm vibrated on my wrist. I was still convinced it was 3am - the last time ...

One week in with the iPhone X

I finally got my hands on the new iPhone X last Sunday and I have to admit, it's rarely left my hands since then. This - finally - is the iPhone I've wished Apple would make. Yes, there's been a ton of anticipation and hype about this phone, but for me it has lived up ...

A wander round sunny Barcelona

I’m once again in beautiful Barcelona, once again for work. But instead of getting up at the crack of dawn to race to morning meetings, I decided to come over the day before and work from here before tomorrow’s meetings. An excellent plan, even if I do say so myself. After working all the way ...

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 ...

A Dutch interlude

I'm sitting in Amsteram's Schiphol Airport, waiting for my flight back to London. I've been in the Netherlands since Wednesday, when I flew over for a conference.  Work-wise, it wasn't too bad. But I was a little sleep deprived (one night due to impressive thunder and lightning!) and survived off some pretty awful conference food. ...

A night in the Frank Sinatra Suite

I worked in Dublin on Thursday and Friday and spent Thursday night at the Royal Marine Hotel in Dun Laoghaire, to the south of the city. I grew up in Dun Laoghaire, it's always nice to get back and spend some time by the sea. I had great plans to finish work early on Thursday ...
