    Midlife Working: The best is yet to come

    Life expectancy is increasing, and by 2040 this is projected to rise to the age of 85. That’s great news for me personally as I am now in my 50’s, but as an HR professional I’m also thinking about what these projections mean in the workplace – and what I should be focussing on for […]

    More than a parade

    Pride Month had become an affinity month that lives in two places in my mind. First, it is the celebration of who I am, who I married, and progress towards true recognition and justice.

    High Fliers #2: What else have I learned from flying?

    Last week, I wrote about a personal milestone, the 40th anniversary of my first solo flight in an aircraft aged just 16, and what I have learned about business leadership from my flying experiences.

    High Fliers: What have I learned from flying?

    Today is the 40th anniversary of my first solo flight in an aircraft. I was aged 16, in an open-cockpit glider launched by a winch at West Malling in Kent. I hadn’t even been able to drive on the road at that age. Since then, flying has become more accessible and so I’ve continued to […]
