This time of year sees plenty of posts around the internet looking back at 2015 and forwards into 2016. I thought I’d take some time to reflect on my year…
I purchased a car from TrustFord Woodford Green, around 2 years ago, as part of the purchase I decided to take up the 5 year service-plan that covered the service and MOT of the car for the next 5 years. I recently had an issue where this year TrustFord forgot to MOT the car at the same time as the service, which meant I had to make a complaint, full transcript below:
It’s been a few weeks since my last reading list. December has been pretty busy in my home and work life, so I’ve got a few weeks reading to catch up on.
This time I look at how to make tough decisions; an ongoing debate about whether programmers can call themselves engineers; what really makes a startup work; the algorithms behind data analytics and the 100 best podcasts according to Inc magazine. As usual leave me any thoughts or comments below.
In my second presentation at our yearly management conference I presented a piece challenging how we can react to the changing way we work. I’d love to hear your thoughts and comments below.

I was recently asked to present a our yearly management conference in a segment called “Dream a Little…”. The segment saw 15, 2-5 minute segments where a number of us had to present a vision of the future and potentially how this would affect our company and the employee benefits sector in general.
I did two segments and for the first one I decided to show the future of Intelligent Virtual Assistants i.e Apple Siri, Google Now, Microsoft Cortana or Facebook ‘M’. I thought I would share it and see what people think. The first section was performed with a Siri ‘voiceover’ followed by a speech to the delegates.
