  • Tip of the week: Returning to normal and motivating your team. You can’t motivate others, even though you might want to. You certainly won’t do it by “being all extrovert around a quiet introvert” Read more here
  • A discussion with David O’Beirne: David is a copywriter and marketing consultant with a strong view on overselling guru marketing agencies. Here’s what business owners and leaders should do stop to falling into the guru trap. Contact David at


In a few weeks’ time series 2 of this show is starting. A couple of subtle changes: there's a similar structure, but by listeners request will have a new section 'question of the week' where I’ll answer one listener's question (add your question below and join me on the show, if you’d like). The interviews will also be slightly longer, so each show will now be 20 minutes long  rather than 15.
