Traditionally this is the time of the year when two things happen:

A. Company heads, CEOs and their attendants reach for the latest “Trends this Year” guide

B. Company heads, CEOs and their attendants look for the “next best thing” to leap on as a means of projecting their company and getting their employees to fall into line.

Both are part of the “reboot” mentality we apply to each fresh start. They are as effective as reading tea leaves or listening to the Oracle of Apollo in Delphi.

Want to truly get ahead? Define who you are, understand what you want and work out how to get it.

Works for businesses and individuals alike.


Raise Your Game: Business books that help you get where you want faster by clearly detailing the steps you need to take.

The world is changing. Not overnight and not all at once, but it is changing nevertheless. In my talks to corporate groups, CEOs, VPs and industry leaders I gleam insights of how this change is happening. What evidence exists. Why some things happen and not others and how we can best take advantage of it all to do better. In Observations I catalogue it all. Brief, to the point and open to discussion.
