Now

3rd October 2018

It’s been over a year since my last update to my now page. 

I imagine the only person reading this is Niki (!) so I will give a more personal update!

Since the last date I’ve spoken at over a dozen events around the world, which has been a pleasure. I released my book, and have just this month released the Engagement Assessment. 

But, I still struggle to clearly articulate my offering. This isn’t because I don’t think engagement isn’t valuable. Rather, it is my perfectionism coupled with my sincere dislike of people being sold things they don’t need. (But, perhaps that’s just a stalling tactic for my perfectionism, eh?)

Here’s a photo I quite like that I took in Monaco:
