Life is a Roller Coaster….

Just got back from having a few days away from it all as it was my wife’s 50th birthday and feel totally refreshed for the challenges ahead.

As a business we are finding things very much like a roller coaster at the moment, from one minute having every available resource busy, to the next thinking what are we going to do with these people??? Such challenging times for us all.

I’ve been doing quite a bit of attending network events where I can over these last few weeks and as a result I’ve met some very interesting and varied people that have turned out to be some very good acquaintances as a result. So thank you to the following people I’ve met that have given me some inspiration:

Martin Skinner

Bradley Knight

Steve McNulty

Keith Yexley

Philip Bailey

Iain Stevenson

Alistair Goddard

Andrew Hyett

Tony Hartley


I’m off to the RICS tonight for an event under the title of RICS Climate Change Series: Green Entrepreneurs Event at the Hub Kings Cross. So who know who I will meet there!


And no I didn’t take time off for the wife carrying contest!

    Hi Derek

    I hope your well. We haven’t spoken for a while but I have been enjoying your blog.

    We have a free forum on the 8th July which I would like to invite you too if your free. After the breakfast forum with over 25 direct companies we have a bus tour of the olympic sites.

    Please feel free to invite your staff and blog partners.

    I look forward to hearing from you soon.
