Thanks for visiting my website and, my blog ...

... you are all welcome here! Here, I write about things that interest me and I hope you find them piquing your interest too.

So, what do I like writing and talking about? I often focus on what is going on in the ever so sexy world of Human Resources (or Personnel as it quaintly used to be known as) - developments in areas such as:

  • how organisations can improve the attendance and well-being of their people interest me, also
  • ideas on how to deal with the management of work-related stress,
  • why should we care about diversity or learning and development? and
  • how to motivate and get the best out of people?

It’s a pretty broad canvas!

Outside of HR, I write on other areas that interest me so that covers the range from features on Film, Theatre and Music from local amateur theatre to the release of brand new films or TV series.

As a Christian and someone who is very spiritual, I am keen writing about Faith and Religion.

I have been a private Do It Yourself Investor for several decades so I also enjoy posting about the world of Personal Finance & Investment.

Apart from being a Charlton Athletic season ticket holder, I love football, athletics, cricket and Olympic events so you can catch my views on Sport.

Anything else I write up you can find in Miscellaneous

So, please click or swipe on any of these images below or to the bottom right of the screen and I look forward to writing for you!

    It's been a fair few years since my website went live and as I have been told by my great webdesign team at Web Design Unlimited, time has moved on and the site was in need of an update - especially when considering the issue of security etc. So...

  • Comfort and Joy - a Tonic! (Film, Theatre, TV & Music) 18-12-2017

    My interest in amateur theatre continues thanks to some very good friends of mine so we ventured out again by visiting (after another carvery you understand…) the very good Theatre 62 who perform out of the Wickham Theatre Centre in West Wickham,...
