The Queen’s Legacy of Leadership

2022-09-26T11:05:05+01:00

Queen Elizabeth was the epitome of female leaders. Being the head of state for 15 countries, most of us have lived most of our lives under her reign. For as long as we can remember she has been on bank notes and coins, stamps, passports and post boxes. The queen normalised women being in charge without even mentioning it. Devoting her entire life to duty, The Queen earned a positive public image not only in the UK but around the world. Her Majesty lent her patronage to more than 600 charities, public service organisations, and military associations. Age and gender [...]

What a difference a day makes!

2021-06-24T16:39:59+01:00

As we think about the enormity of what is happening to the world at the moment, it is easy to forget that the Easter Bank holiday is rapidly approaching for us here in the UK. This holiday usually results in a mass exodus as many of us have been planning, then preparing to pack and travel on short breaks maybe overseas or to the coast, the hills or meeting friends and family. For others it will be a time for prayer and reflection, whilst for the younger generation it is generally Easter egg hunts, egg painting and a massive overdose [...]

2021-06-24T16:40:24+01:00

The Coronavirus is challenging working norms and will become an unlikely ally of improving inclusive practices, as it is beginning to get employers to deploy homeworking! This will work as a field trial and if successful could potentially change the way the world thinks of work. Although many employers are naturally nervous about productivity, security and isolation of staff if it were to introduce homeworking, many of those who have done it will testify that by offering extra flexibility, staff feel trusted and being able to work where they feel most comfortable, which as a result boosts productivity. It can also [...]
