Have you ever ‘Stormed a Castle’ and created massive change?

Have you ever got to a point and thought ‘enough is enough, something has to change’? If you have then you have arrived at the castle gates; what you then need to decide is whether you are going to Storm the Castle, issue the challenge and be the change you want to see, or whether you’re going to pass by, unnoticed in the crowd.

In conversation with Caroline Brewer

This week, I’m in conversation with my close friend and first-time author Caroline Brewer. We first met back in 2009 when we both attended business network and later Toastmasters International meeting. Caroline’s book is called More Than You Think and it came out, first in Kindle format and later in paperback during lockdown and I was incredibly honoured when she asked me to write the foreword.

If this then that – why life is the way it is!

I titled this piece, If this then that, after an automation service that businesses and individuals can use to reduce the manual processing of ‘data’ and other actions. You decide what you want to automate, for example I might decide that I need to update a database when someone fills in a form on my website. Normally, I’d get the information by email and then copy and paste it into my database, but ITTT automates the task, leaving me with precious time to do something more interesting instead.
