Dr Edward de Bono (1933-2021)

At the House of Lords with Dr Edward de Bono for the launch of Think! Before It’s Too Late, that I helped to launch in July 2009

I’m saddened to report the passing of one of my heroes, Edward de Bono, who has died.

I was trained in Six Thinking Hats by the wonderful de Bono instructor Chuck Dymer who was inspirational. I was fortunate in being asked, some years later, to help Edward de Bono launch his book, ‘Think Before It’s Too Late’ published in 2009.

Working from Home (WFH) – the new privacy frontier!

Arguably, one of the most profound effects of the COVID-19 pandemic has been the accelerated shift from the office to working from home (WFH).

The overall trend towards remote working has been well documented, but the COVID-19 pandemic has created the ‘new sub-normal’ for millions and is likely to remain with us well after the global economy has emerged from the deep freeze.
