Unique or special?

  Everyone is unique which means we are all different. There will never be someone quite like you ever, ever again. That's pretty cool and while it makes you special, it also means we're all special :-) While we seek to be acknowledged for our difference, we have a primal need to belong. This is just one example of the polarity universe we live in. Where there's dark, there's light. When we are confronted with a new difference whether it...

Wanted: Sustainable products that work with ease and simplicity Wanted: Buses that adhere to their timetable SO what can you rely on...

So even more reasons to make them. Raw Cacao has been deemed the highest food source for antioxidants!! Ingredients 1 cup pitted medjool dates 1 cup activated...

Unforgettable you

Ever notice when you're at a conference, in the office, at a party that some people have a crowd milling around them and others feel a bit more like Nellie no Mates. Some people you meet once and they're forever etched in your memory. Others you're digging deep into your karma bank to recall their when, when, who, who with after several rendez vous'. This can also translate to business. What is the secret to being unforgettable to those clients...

Appreciation with time, space and context

Samantha Hahn a Brooklyn based illustrator covers the New York Fashion week and in this article in The Cut Hahn talks about how illustrating the pieces makes her slow down and take time to look and see, then look again to take in the texture, the details, the form. She notices how technology has transformed the industry and its media coverage. Media by its nature needs more and more. It pulses on fast and new. Fashion like almost every other industry has moved from...

It's a breakfast talk series I co-host with Eamon Eastwood of Taste Ireland on behalf of the Lansdowne Club. PatChats is kind of like TED talks with an accent. We started a couple of years ago in response to the changing work landscape as a place for people to meet others like them, to share, collaborate and co-create. It's peer to peer conversations on a different...

108 questions to crack the mask and spark connection

A friend tells a story of how when her son first went to childcare. He wasn't interested in playing with the other kids. No matter how much the carer would try to cajole him into joining the group, he'd decline. He wasn't crying or whinging. He seemed content enough,  just not 'socialising'. After a few weeks his Mum addressed this, asking why. There was no rational or logical response 'I'm shy.' 'There's not my people.' 'They play silly childish games.' 'I'd rather be...
