One Thing You Simply Must Stop Doing & It’s This!

Posted on March 16th, 2015 by

Seriously, you must stop putting yourself down. Resolve to stop right this minute. I’ve had three emails over the last week or so enquiring about coaching. Which is great because I love coaching women to be more successful. What wasn’t so great is, that in each of the emails to me, the women were being really hard on themselves when telling me why they’d like to work with me. It was quite incredible the scorn they heaped upon their own

Women, Do You Know Your Sell By Date?

Posted on March 15th, 2015 by

According to a recent survey of Human Resources professional women can expect to stop getting any useful career development once they pass the age of 45. Their career progression slows to a grinding halt. What a huge loss that is to the business world and the world in general. And what an insult to wise women everywhere.

Posted on March 13th, 2015 by

I Confess – I Had a Fling But Now It’s Over

Posted on March 11th, 2015 by

I’ve been fickle, I admit it. I had a brief meaningless fling with my new friend, Kindle, but it’s over, trust me. Oh, I keep in touch for old times sake, and I take the old thing away on trips to keep it happy, but actually it only really served to rekindle (!) my love affair with books. I am back to books for good. There is something so beautiful and timeless about books. I just have to see a

As part of the European Women’s Lobby’s Beijing+20 focus month on ‘Women in Decision-Making’, February 2015 saw the launch of the EWL’s latest report entitled ‘Women on Boards in Europe: Second Progress Report. Cracks in the glass ceiling or just a trick of the light?’ Alys Mumford on the Engender site gave an excellent précis, which I have précised even more! The original post is here.
