Ways that I can help

Speaking

I speak at major events with hundreds of participants but also address small management teams, tailoring my content and approach to meet the requirements of individual situations. Although I speak internationally I am also willing to use technology to present remotely. Find out more about my speaking topics.

Writing

Writing is one of the main channels through which I spread the word about the changing world of work. As well as the blogs and articles on this website, I write articles for other publications and guest blogs. I am also the author of a couple of books, with another two in the pipeline. Find out more about my writing.

Advising

I help CEOs and management teams to understand the changing world of work and facilitate their decisions about adopting new practices in their organisations, with an emphasis on realising the business benefits. Find out more about my advisory services.
