Hardcore Acceptance

What if we believed that everything in the world was for us, rather than being done to us? What if we believed that every heartbreak, struggle, annoyance, anger and grumpiness was in fact a gift for us. What if we believed that each of those things is part of the perfection of life. What if […]

Multitasking doesn’t exist

As seen in Hunter Headline   I have recently realised how challenging it can be for me to pay attention. Not in a one-on-one sense, but in a way where I am truly present in each moment and can achieve the true feeling of being in the moment. I’ve started personal training this year and […]

Remembering to play

Sitting at my desk at the Dash co-working space, a sudden uproar alerted me. Looking up, I saw a nerf war in progress among the Zimpleweb team. Lots of laughter ensued. Within about 10 minutes, everything had settled down and the Nerf Warriors had returned to work. Over the following weeks, I watched with fascination […]

How does strategy impact organisational culture?

They either; Need help fixing a cultural issue before it turns toxic, OR; Need HR/People and Culture support in recruitment and workforce planning, OR; Need Coaching and Mentoring for Personal Development.

What’s to love in a tech world

There is an enormous amount of fear, suspicion and plain trepidation about the role of technology in the workplace.
