The Measure Of A Man

Richard Branson posted this video at the beginning of the week and I immediately retweeted it. If you don’t know who Archbishop Desmond TuTu is, he was instrumental in the pulling down of apartheid in South Africa. I have all the respect in the world for this man who has stayed the course, and in ...

Keeping Your Head When Everyone Else Is…

This week is busy. We have two new interns in the office at Aaron+Gould, and Women In Touch (my client and church initiative) big yearly conference this week. It’s weeks like this, where you have to manage multiple things at a high stress and time pressure, that easily break your daily routine and to-do system. Normally ...

Experience: Today’s Currency

When you go into Starbucks what are you buying? A product? A good? A service? Or are you indeed buying something far greater than coffee? The idea of experience in marketing is not at all a new one, and indeed the general public can now observe that more often than not, the notion of experience ...

Content is a Commodity. Clarity is King.

We have so much content that we are drowning. If aspiring social media magnets could only do half of what has been blogged about, as opposed to finding new ways to do what they aren’t doing every day, then we’d have a plethora of Chris Brogans. But, we don’t. And it is the same with ...

The Most Precious Human Resource: Action

The thing with content is it can be digested very easily – most often like soft porridge oats that require no chewing – and requires little action. Action. The most precious human resource in the world. It is the people who ...

Introducing Mrs. Gould

It’s hard to know where to start. If I started from the beginning, I wouldn’t finish. But if I don’t say how it began, then you won’t know just how precious she is. I guess I’ll start with the vital statistics. A praying woman. Blonde bombshell. A very insightful wife. A Youth worker and number-two ...

How GTD Rescued Me

Jesus saved my soul. GTD saved my future. Really, it did. When started working at church at 19 I had no office experience. And although in my melancholic, creative nature there is an obsessive and meticulous organiser within me, unfortunately I have historically had a nasty habit of never implementing a system because I could ...

Early Memories of Design Fascination

I remember being in my first year at school and seeing a group of boys build a boat using Lego. “Idiots” I thought, as they built columns of the ships hull one brick directly on top of another. “They should crisscross them like they do with houses”. Then the insult came: their boat was displayed ...
