We’re all human

The world can often seem a scary place. Terrorism, poverty, tragedy. These are words we hear far too often, things we have become a little too used to. “London is the city of success” they said. So far, it’s been filled with heartache and hardship. When did a city so bright and beautiful become a…

The opportunity of a lifetime

“Sometimes we are so attached to our way of life, that we turn down a wonderful opportunity simply because we don’t know what to do with it.” – Paulo Coelho Everyone talks about opportunities being rare, about doors opening and closing and how we should never turn our backs on the chance to do or…

Insert Creative Content Here

Whether you are launching a start-up or leading an established company, you should start establishing your social media if you haven’t already.

Searching for inspiration

Inspiration (noun): the process of being mentally stimulated to do or feel something, especially to do something creative From university to love to careers, everyone is constantly on the hunt for inspiration.

The worlds biggest con: Social Media

Having been a fan of social media for many years, I have always considered myself to be a fairly confident person. I’m not shy in sharing my pictures on Instagram or checking in on Facebook when I reach the airport at the start or end of my holiday. But is a social media presence really…

Singapore: The Inspiration Nation

“It is not our differences that divide us. It is our inability to recognise, accept and celebrate those differences.” – Audre Lorde Out of the many things I learned during my time in Singapore, the most important lesson was the value of acceptance and understanding. In such a big, bad and unpredictable world, it is…

Blissful Ignorance

Sometimes it’s easy to get caught up in the mundane and the routine of everyday life; work, eat, sleep, survive. It’s easy to forget what inspired us in the first place, what dreams and goals sent us on this long path, what’s pushing us to continue.

Political PR is Professional Suicide

Brexit, the US Elections, the sudden resignation of Martin McGuinness as Deputy First Minister… what is next for the world we live in? No matter what your political stance, your views on the world or religious beliefs, there is always someone with an opposing opinion. Someone who doesn’t agree, someone who doesn’t believe what you…

If personality and character are different, does this mean that people can have conflicting morals too? If morality truly doesn’t exist then what does the future of the world hold? What is the future…

Is he my cup of coffee?

A friend of mine once said that relationships are like holding a hot cup of coffee – sometimes your hands shake carrying it across the room, in fear that it will spill and burn. But if you didn’t care about what’s inside the cup (and a coffee addict like me most definitely does!) you wouldn’t…

My favourite time of the year

December: a month of lights, snow and feasts; time to make amends and tie loose ends; finish off what you started and hope your wishes come true. December is my favourite month in the year. It’s the epitome of character. It’s not about wealth or fortune, what you have or don’t. It’s a chance to…
