Welcome to the random musings of our creative director. We want to share how we feel about business and life, how the two things are intertwined and how consciousness really does lead to a more fulfilling and successful existence for all. You won’t find tips or tricks here, instead you’ll be inspired by businesses that we feel are kicking goals when it comes to running heart-centred organisations and who walk their talk with passion. There will probably be some opinion-sharing too, tongue-in-cheek and with hopefully a bit of humour too.

Social purpose and social impact are topics that are discussed in the media and online with increasing regularity at the moment. And, whether you realise it or not, we all, both individuals and organisations, have a social impact. The question is whether...
It seems that purpose is the word on everybody’s lips at the moment. You’ll find it very prominently on this website that we do PR on Purpose and, being part of the Conscious Capitalism community I’m officially a card-carrying member of the purpose club...

I’ve been very lucky during my business journey, spanning the last 11 years or so, to seem to have been in the right place at the right time when it comes to opportunities to show your stuff. When I was a solo business owner-wordsmith right at the...
It’s hard being a conscious business these days, especially when you work in the service industry. Once you open your eyes you see them everywhere and it’s very easy to get caught up in every bright and shiny good deed that’s going around.
This...
I was reminded yet again recently, not that I personally have ever forgotten, that genuine connection is worth as much, if not far more than the perceived honour of being featured in the media.

One of my biggest issues is getting people to...
Well, actually, it probably is just another New Year blog post but without a resolution in sight. I’m getting the vibe that 2014 was a particularly challenging year for many people, me included, but the main theme for the year was growth and learning....
 So, it’s a couple of years since I’ve blogged. And, truth be known, what came before was less of a blog and more of a few articles designed to establish my credibility within an industry that seems to have lost its way a bit, at least to the outside...
