Co-Creating for the win

I’ve taken the next step with ReflectGrowth.com.  Having sent out questionnaires to all of our co-create members we realised that what people wanted was a place to share stories, to learn from each other and accelerate their growth as they went.  We also needed a space to share the work that I’ve been doing on […]

Using Flipboard to find the Good Stuff

Flipboard is a tool I’ve had running on my iPhone for a number of years.  It’s great because I can tell it what I’m interested in reading about and it finds content for me to read and subsequently share.  It’s been a fantastic tool for helping me to sift through all of the wonderful content […]
