The Best Version…

Following a crazy May and June, that's even tipped into the start of July, it's that time of year where taking a break is fast approaching! This summer break is particularly welcomed. Work has been increasingly busy with involvement in a variety of projects from...

Play to your strengths

A battery recharge!

How funny that only this morning my wireless keyboard batteries decided they'd had enough! But the truth is we all run out of steam and need to stop the world and get off every now and then. And it's that time right now for me!   I'll be out of the office for the next...
