Selling online demands attention. You have to grab the attention of your visitor, present them with the right amount of information to make an informed choice and lead them through to the sale. This has to be done in a way that doesn’t overwhelm or confuse. During November 2016 I spent a few days […]

I had high hopes for it. Even before the debacle over LinkedIn’s update, this site promised something different. A business focus, taking away the spam and giving you the opportunity to brand yourself to clients and peers. Only something happened. Now it’s become “remote.com” and is just another job board filling up with people offering […]

… you need to follow through on it. And after looking at the plan I made in early November I’ve realised I’m way behind on where I need to be. No doubt there are excuses I could make, reasons why I haven’t done things, but the bottom line is this: my plan is behind because […]

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 […]

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. A single plant surviving beneath a downlighter underneath a […]

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. Today we’ve seen the concept […]

The turbine hall in the Tate Modern is a magnificent open space.

If you happen to go to Birmingham don’t just head for the Bull Ring. Take a detour and visit the canals. There’s some great places to wander round.

A strange experience at the Tate Modern, and one I heartily recommend. I happened to be there this lunchtime when I realised the massive turbine hall had been plunged into darkness. Ambient music was playing and keeping time were light boxes located all around the hall. It transformed the otherwise quite serene space into a […]

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. Because my focus is now shifting to the Pacific Rim I’ve been less interested in companies that are ONLY based in the UK or ONLY serving the […]
