Why do we commute every day?
March 17th, 2017

As I stood on the freezing cold platform at Watford Junction waiting for my (delayed again) train to arrived it struck me. I can service clients in Australia and Singapore from a desk in a room in Watford, yet a client based in London expects me to travel for 2 and a half hours a day in cramped conditions to sit at a desk so I can Skype and email the people around me.

London
It survives beneath a bench
March 14th, 2017

My usual lunchtime walk took me round the back of Tate Modern, where I noticed a fleck of green beneath a trendy stone bench. I walked closer, noting the way the underside of the bench was lit and realised the green I saw was a plant.

Is the Conservative Government out to destroy UK micro-businesses?
March 11th, 2017

During the late 1990s and early 00’s the UK Government made it far easier for people to start their own businesses. It led to a boom in “micro-businesses”, small companies that might have a single employee and could be nothing more than a hobby creating some money on the side.

March 8th, 2017

Most of us cluster round the main concourse looking longingly at the boards waiting for news of our train. Head up the stairs though and there’s a mezzanine that offers an alternative place to watch the commuters go by.

Living Life
Refocusing my energy on the future, not the past
February 18th, 2017

After I took the decision to leave the UK something changed in me: I started looking at the various business relationships I have in a very different light.

London
Thames in the mist
February 17th, 2017

A couple of times a day I have to get out of the office and wander round the streets of London. I think it’s important to get out and about, get some fresh air and look at something further away than the screen that sits on my desk a metre from my face.

Where does the iPad say we should go next?
January 10th, 2017

Seen on London’s Southbank, a pair of tourists consult their iPad for ideas on where to go next. As much as I love my iPhone I find the larger screen of an iPad makes it easier to read maps and pick up ideas when I’m touring a city.
