Is the lunch break finished?

As a student, working at a furniture shop in Paris, on my first day, two of my colleagues invited me out for my first ever lunch break. We sat outside, under a cafe awning, watching the heavy rain and we each had steak and chips and a carafe of red wine. I was very impressed. […]

Who are Generation Z and why do employers hate them?

Generation Z (Gen Z), also known as Zoomers, is the demographic group that follows Millennials and precedes Generation Alpha. Media use the mid-to-late 1990s as starting birth years and the early 2010s as ending birth years. They are, therefore, aged 12-27. Most members of Generation Z are the children of Generation X or older Millennials. […]

Lockdown is to blame for the workshy

Sorry to be parochial, but I want to take a look at a situation that is particularly exercising the press at the moment, and it has nothing to do with Photoshop but does involve the inherently workshy. In the UK, lockdown left many legacies, none of them positive. Currently, the proportion of the working-age population […]

Happy International Women’s Day! 

A day to celebrate the changes that were implemented finally giving women their flowers. Not actual flowers but better autonomy over their bodies and freedom. We could simply smile, hug our female loved ones or debate the existence of such a day (since there is no Man’s Day), but there are some serious issues that […]

A few weeks ago, 81-year-old Joe Biden, held a press conference where he insisted that his memory was absolutely fine. He did it because of the publication of a justice department report that cleared him of criminal charges over his handling of classified materials, which he had absent-mindedly stored in his garage. Special counsel, Robert […]

Sport as a Metaphor for Life

Last weekend England beat India at cricket in the first of a best-of-five test match series and Jannik Sinner, of Italy, came back from two sets to love down to defeat Danil Medvedev, of Russia, at tennis, in five sets in the final of the Australian Open. It was a fantastic weekend of sport. But […]

Be a good boss; Resign

Setting up your own business is hard work. Everyone knows that and they’ll additionally say you need to work all hours to keep things ticking along. But they couldn’t be more wrong. It is clearly important to do all you can to make a business succeed, but it might be crucial to not burn out […]

Mental health is corporate business

Owen Farrell is a hard man. As hard as granite, and he’s the England rugby captain. But he has decided to hand back his captaincy of his national team in order to protect his mental health. Speaking of the pressures of playing for your country, he said: “You are dealing with people, with human beings.” […]

Unlocking Success: Some Business Parallels of South Africa’s Rugby World Cup Victory

Congratulations to South Africa for their Rugby World Cup victory on the weekend! Much has been made of their brutal physicality, their suffocating blitz defence and set-piece dominance. But it seems to me their perennial ace card is their strength in depth, the quality of their ‘bench warriors’ or ‘pine riders’ or in specific reference […]
