Can You Help Me?

Posted on July 16th, 2018 by

I need your help, and that of any chaps you know who might have something to share.

Read on…

I am in the early stages of writing a book, aimed at both genders. It is NOT a guide for women to behave like men nor a rant at men to behave better. It’s taking the research and making it practical, helpful and useful (and not too heavy).

I’d like to use some real life examples for would be very grateful if you have any to share. I’m looking for examples of men not understanding women and vice versa. Or, why as a woman you might not have spoken up in a meeting, or as a man, you feel that women go too far round the houses before reaching their point. Is there something the opposite gender does when speaking that drives you to distraction? Research shows that despite men and women both thinking women talk the most at work,  it’s actually not true. What kind of impact does that have?

N.B. Although I need to know who you are your name doesn’t need to go in the book so please speak freely. I will send you a free copy of the book if featured, obviously!

Please do share this with colleagues, Thank you so much.  Email me here.

Are You an Underground Woman?

Posted on July 11th, 2018 by

Do you hate your job? Are you beavering away in the dark and allowing your light to be hidden? Maybe it’s time to come out into the sunshine and take a risk or two? Time to ask for a few pertinent questions, like what do I really want to do with my life? Then doing it! (OK that last part is a tad more difficult, but you CAN do it!)


Inspirational Woman – Michelle Thomson

Posted on July 3rd, 2018 by

Meet Michelle Thomson who has a fascinating and inspiring story to share. Q:What advice would you give to any women thinking of entering politics? (And heaven knows we need more women in politics.)
Answer: It is a very difficult game; in fact I would describe it as brutal. There are few people you can trust and the environment is filled with many ego-centric people playing power games.


If Men Are The Problem Are Women the Answer?

Posted on June 18th, 2018 by

We have all fallen into the trap of thinking that the way men behave is the norm, the way it has to be. The male yardstick.
But it doesn’t have to be that way.
Women do it differently. Maybe we all should consider for a moment that perhaps the womanly way is better? 
My message to those top execs who had to make feeble excuses about not enough of the right women out there… Cripes, we women always have to help men find things. ;>)


No More Boys and Girl – Updated with Graham Andre

Posted on June 13th, 2018 by

No More Boys and Girls was a fascinating BBC documentary on gender bias in an Isle of Wight school which aired in the summer of 2017. I interviewed the teacher involved, Graham Andre, at the time, and some months on I have spoken with him to see what he thinks, if anything, has changed
