Website Housekeeping

I used to always remember my father, who’s a painter and decorator, would infuriate my mother by leaving our own house in disrepair and the last job my Dad would work on.

Is Project Management as we know it, dead?

With 20 years of experience, I know and have lived how Project Management over the years has changed. Submitting my CV with project management experience is not really cutting it now, you know why?

Want to grow your business? Why you want to leave Facebook…

facebook4732-270x167I speak to many people about how it can be difficult to setup a small business or shared interest group on Facebook. I quickly reply, “That’s because they want you to pay.
