Is this what purpose is?

Purpose and giving back to communities. Is that what purpose is? What do you think? While I was in London I was asked to sit on a panel at the Financial Services Forum and it was exactly this that we all debated. And we had some really interesting thoughts coming out of this discussion. One […]

Have better stories…

When you’re this age, have better stories to tell your grandkids. While I was in London the other week, BBH launched their campaign to call for applicants for this year’s BBH Team TIE. These old faces are actually people at the agency – aged…. such a great idea. See below for more brilliant examples of […]

Friendly Manitoba

In Canada, every province’s license plate has a slogan that sums up that particular province. There is Beautiful British Columbia. Wild Rose Country (for Alberta). And Friendly Manitoba.

And that’s a wrap.

And that’s a wrap. This was all about being challenged to think and do things differently. And what was clear to this group ever since they got involved – doing nothing is not an option. A lot has happened since this TIE programme kicked off a little over 6 weeks ago with this incredible team […]

Today, this article goes out in We Are The City where I reflect on the gender bias in the corporate world and what we can do to fix it. I […]

There were two pencils

There were two pencils in a drawer. One was new, beautiful, with a sharp tip. The other – poor thing! – was small, worn down and old. The big one, brand new, looked at the little pencil and yelled: “Oh, little one! You, down there! Can you hear me?” “You don’t need to yell,” replied […]
