You may have come across this video already on my Facebook page  but it was so important that I didn’t want to assume that you had seen it there. A few months ago the children at my son Ellis was asked by his teachers what he wanted to do when he was older. He has [...]

Great Feedback from the 1st iCan LIVE

Last week we launched the iCan Live event in Newcastle. It was much more than just my keynote presentation.

Wow! What an incredible weekend. The launch of the ‘iCan Speak’ Academy far exceeded my expectations and is one day I’ll not forget in a hurry. In fact one of the delegates caused the hairs on the back of my neck to stand up. (I’ll explain why in a second.) In the picture above you will [...]

I was sitting in my car at my local car park, enjoying a few minutes on Twitter. As I sat there, I saw a small sports car race into an empty space behind me as though its driver’s life depended on it. Out of my mirror I could see her jump out of the car and [...]

You can imagine how angry I was can’t you? You have probably experienced something similar yourself. You return to your car and the wing mirror is damaged or even worse, someone has crashed into your car and driven off. I’m not sure if you can imagine how angry I was as I wasn’t really. I [...]
