I recently spoke with some experts and tried to get to the bottom of how to create a workplace that is both efficient and a fun place to be. It was very illuminating and the transcript of the whole discussion is below. The participants were Kursty Groves, workplace consultant, Tim Hanwell of Office Works and […]
My children have been busy during the summer holidays. They made some animals from the recycling and then this great movie – with a bit of help from their older cousin.
I have been enjoying dipping into some of the events at Clerkenwell Design Week. My favourite so far was a talk on Wellbeing and Productivity in the Workplace by Dr Craig Knight of Haddleton Knight at The Frem Group showroom. I loved the photos of an office from 1906 and 2015 – they looked virtually the […]
Everyone knows someone with a bad back or has one themselves. David Mitchell in his autobiography, Back Story, says how other people’s back pain is boring and then goes onto write a whole book about his. Actually that is a bit unfair as he talks about plenty of other stuff and he is very funny. […]
I have just read a fantastic book about a guy who had been suffering back pain for months, found he had a tumour in his spine, had an operation to remove it and then four months later completed an Ironman. That is a 2.4 mile swim, a 112 mile bike ride finished with a marathon. […]

The call comes as part of the first joined-up strategy for tackling lack of exercise cross society, estimated to cause […]
I love this advert with the dancing chicken for Mercedes! There are two spoofs below. Jaguar made this lovely spoof. I couldn’t resist trying to make a spoof as well – not quite as professional but it amused me and kept my nephew out of trouble for a few minutes!
On the news today I heard about the launch of the Fit for Work scheme. It has as its objective to help staff get back to work, particularly if they have been abscent for 4 weeks or more, by providing advice from a ‘Fit for Work professional.’ The report I heard said that the professionals […]
