Keep Calm & Plan Your Crisis Comms

Like all of us, I’ve spent a lot of time over the past few weeks glued to news outlets, Twitter, Instagram, podcasts, & other channels to keep myself & my family informed about covid-19.  And, if I'm honest, I'm feeling pretty much at saturation point from an emotional & intellectual standpoint when it comes to …

The Art of Being You: Building A Better Personal Brand (without the BS)

This isn’t a new idea, in fact it’s an old one. It’s only the platforms on which we’re meant to sparkle that are different. Le sigh. Hands up if you’re already bored of all of the beaty-chesty congratulatory swill that people post in an attempt to feel any bit of anything at all.

It's 11am on a Tuesday in Auckland, New Zealand & I've just flown in from Los Angeles. Before you ask, no, I didn't do the literal flying. The pilots did, obvs (*insert Dad Joke about tired wings from all that flying here*) Right now my mind, body, & soul are balanced. Why? Well, for almost every …

Get Out Of Town, Literally. Why Taking A Break Is Good For Every Part of You.

The Rat Race & The Human Hamster Wheel If you're like me, your life is a bit like a hamster wheel - but for humans. We live out our best years as quasi-robots bound by a monotonous & perpetual cycle that has been colloquially dubbed the 9-to-5. This cycle is what we're taught as children …
