He ain’t nothing like I imagined!

How many times have we heard that phrase? We bump into people in the corridor or at a Town Hall and the leader we meet (guy or gal!) just seems completely different in 'real-life' to what we've pictured, read or been led to believe exists?!

Corporate comms: is there ‘no’ hope?

I never cease to be amazed at how many otherwise intelligent, erudite, sensible human beings seem to have complete brain fade when it comes to writing anything – particularly in a work context.
