The Accountability Bunny

The past eight months or so have been a grind.Whilst I wouldn’t call myself a gym bunny, I’m certainly a regular attendee but recently attendance has been closer to the Easter Bunny’s appearances.Sporadic.It may not have been just once this year but, compared to three days a week, it feels like it. I’m normally disciplined […]

Trusting them team

I had the privilege of going to the final two days of the Ashes this weekend (July 2023). It was incredible. Watching Stuart Broad, the night after announcing his retirement, smashing the last ball he’ll ever hit in cricket for six – straight over a client’s head it turned out. Then on Monday with his […]

You and Brian…

The 151st Open Championship at Hoylake, Liverpool was won by an unassuming chap called Brian Harman. Not a Rory, Rahm, Justin, or Cameron in sight.  In fact, Brian was so far out of sight he won by a whopping 7 shots, only the 3rd American in four decades to do this.   It’s the equivalent of […]

What do you get paid for?

It’s a great question to take into the weekend but I won’t leave you hanging for the answer… A – “Your ability to act”. This past week I’ve had no less than three separate conversations around people’s inability to simply get things done. Your ability to make things happen, to convert your dreams, aspirations and […]

Progress Is Subjective

  They say that Rome wasn’t built in a day – but they were laying bricks on day one.   Progress is so subjective but it’s human nature to compare ourselves to others.  Whether it’s the neighbour who’s driving a new sports car, the childhood friend who’s retired early, or the cousin that’s on yet another […]

A Word For Lewis Capaldi 

  If anyone didn’t know, it was Glastonbury last weekend.     The UK’s biggest music festival never disappoints and whether you’re a fan of Elton John, Artic Monkeys, The Foo Fighters, Lana Del Rey or any one of the hundreds of artists who performed, there was something for everyone.    But there was one moment […]

An Unwanted Anniversary 

Last week, I celebrated an unwanted anniversary.  It was a year since I had a cardiac “event” in Portugal while on a golf/marketing trip.    I flew home and later in the year, heart surgery was on the cards.    Fast forward to today and I’m stronger, fitter and healthier – and my golf swing […]

On The Edge Of Glory 

We’re only a couple of weeks away from one of sport’s greatest rivalries resuming…    As England take on Australia for the Ashes once again.    And I wanted to talk about one of cricket’s most infamous moments, which took place in the 1948 Ashes series.    Don Bradman, arguably the greatest cricketer ever to […]

Community… What Does It Mean To You?

Here’s a question for you:   When you hear the word community, what springs to mind?   For me, it only has positive connotations. I was reminded of that this week when I saw a video pop up on Facebook that encapsulated every emotion I associate with football.   Football’s Not Every Business…   If […]
