Live with passion

Live with passion

So I managed to fit in a single day’s skiing last Sunday.
Nothing very remarkable about that, you might think, until you learn that I haven’t skied for 20 years despite it being one of my passions in life. The reason for this (previously) sad state of affairs is a long story but the Lesson Learned was as obvious as the skis on my feet: if you have a passion in life, in business or in pleasure, then don’t let ...

10 Lessons Learned. My personal list.

10 Lessons Learned. My personal list.

I was asked to give a project update to fellow ‘tenants’ at the Stevenage Bioscience Catalyst yesterday. It was actually an interesting exercise for me because I decided to summarise my life’s work on one pictorial slide, and summarise what lessons I had learned along the way on another.

Price matters … in green decision making

Price matters … in green decision making

There I am, at  a gas station in the wilds of Michigan and still some miles North of Detroit, filling my giant, rented SUV and the fuel pump … stops. Something is wrong. The car was almost empty – I have driven for a good 30 miles, slowly, fuel indicator unmoving on red, looking for somewhere to fill up. But the dial on the pump says I have put less that $100 in to the tank so either the car’s fuel guage is faulty or the tank is only about half ...
