A pitch to lovers of comedy

I’ve just finished reading an amazing and hilarious book called - Satiristas! (Comedians, Contrarians, Raconteurs & Vulgarians) and here is the review I posted on Amazon.

This is a remarkable book full of insight into the quirky, quicksilver minds of some of the world’s best comedians, along with thought-provoking arguments as to why comedy is vital to the health and moral hygiene of any democracy.

Living in Interesting Times

Like it or not, we are living in interesting times. Cut-backs, job losses, spiralling debt, dwindling optimism, a media industry battling to sustain itself in a fractured, fickle world… But it’s not all bad.

Going Off Piste

Having just returned from a perfect long weekend skiing in the Italian Alps, I am ruminating on what made the trip so special and enjoyable. Essentially it all comes down to what I believe is the core of everything I teach in seminars and lectures – communication.

Good Morning Hamburg

I have recently returned from delivering trainings to Google executives in the beautiful city of Hamburg.

I have been to Hamburg several times before but this time I got there a lot faster, because, as soon as we landed, the Lufthansa pilot taxied the plane faster than Michael Schumacher on his way down an autobahn after Claudia Schiffer had made him a promise. Having flown many hundreds of time all over the world, I have never had an experience like it. Could it be possible that German airports are like German autobahns and have no speed limits?

Going Back to Your Roots

Watching a re-run of Dragon's Den last week, I was pleased to see Levi Roots' excellent pitch for his Reggae Reggae sauce.

He came up the famous stairs, playing his guitar and singing "Give me some Reggae Reggae sauce..." and presented a beautifully simple pitch. It's not as hot as hot sauce and it's not as sweet as tomato sauce.

Walking the walk

Sometimes you need a little of distance to bring the real impact of things into focus.

Over this Christmas period I have had time to reflect on a fabulous experience at The Charisma Bootcamp in Dublin in December. It was a rare privilege to work with so many smart, inspirational people over such a short period of time.

The H Factor

This week David Cameron announced £2 million of funding for the measurement of happiness and well-being in the UK. Do you really believe we have to spend all that money on finding out how happy people are? Does it make a difference to how we'll feel about the recession, or the public spending cuts? I think that we could better spend the money doing something about changing people’s attitudes.

And the award goes to...

I am never usually that keen to go to an awards ceremony. As a general rule, they are overly long with bad food, cheap wine and MC’s/presenters who don’t know how to work a cavernous room filled with drunks. However, I was invited to the B2B Marketing Awards by the lovely and talented PR guru Jill Franklin of Franklin Rae so I thought that, at the very least, our table would be fun. Franklin Rae were up for the award for PR Agency of the Year against some very stiff opposition.

Young Entrepreneurs Need a Head Start

The Youth Entrepreneurship Survey 2010, a Harris Interactive online poll conducted on for the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation, revealed that 40 percent of young people show a great interest in becoming an entrepreneur.

Opportunity Knocks

For the past few weeks, along with Will Greenwood, Scott Quinnell and Chris Chudleigh (pictured below) and with special guest appearances from Boris Johnson and David Haye, I have been working on a Sky TV show called School of Hard Knocks.
