The Big Shift In How We Spend

June 6th 2011

The world is witnessing a huge modality shift in the banking and retail worlds, with mobile devices becoming the preferred method of payment. While some companies are embracing this shift and prospering, others are struggling to keep up with where consumer behaviour is heading.

Why Adversity Is A Good Thing

May 13th 2011

Only those who have managed to fail greatly have succeeded greatly.

While many fortune 500 companies where laying off and going through massive changes at the start of the Global Financial Meltdown, PepsiCo CEO Indra Nooyi decided to do something different. She travelled around the world boosting her employee’s morale and encouraging them to see the good in every bad situation. This action had a profound impact on the company and also her as a leader. In fact Fortune Magazine named her the most powerful woman in the world in 2009.

The Next Big Shift For Retail

March 5th 2011

Michael Degnan (of SapientNitro and Engagement Banking fame) and myself headed down to the Starbucks at One Penn Plaza in New York City with the objective of recording our experience of processing a mobile payment using the Starbucks App for the iPhone. The App links your phone to your pre-paid Starbucks card to process payments using a QR code on the screen, which can be scanned by a small reader connected to the cash register. The experience was, in a word, engaging…

March 1st 2011

Chunk Up! – This is a tool which is powerful in figuring out what is “most important” in every situation. From making sure the “big picture” is in mind, to prioritizing tasks and not “sweating the small stuff”, this is a tool which will help in the clarity of what needs to be done.

Web Services That Are Changing The Way We Work

February 17th 2011

My clients often ask me which web services I use and why. At first, I advocated the Cloud as a way of saving money and avoiding cruel and unnatural suffering at the hands of in-house IT. But after a while, I realised that the most disruptive impact created by the Cloud was not the death of traditional software, but rather a potential transformation in the way we work, collaborate and engage with clients. The Cloud was a behavioural rather than a technological revolution. Many of the insights that emerged from my discussions with companies, both big and small – seemed at first counter intuitive. For example – why would sharing private data yield new patterns for profitability, outsourcing business processes back to your clients provide them with a sense of control, or avoiding work actually result in you being more productive? Anyway enough with the preamble – here is my list of the top nine Cloud services that have both changed the way I work, and more importantly, the way I think about it.

Tested by science!

August 1st 2012

One of the big challenges organisations face when they book a presenter for a conference is "will the attendees walk away and actually change behaviour". In a world first Dr Adam Fraser wanted to put his clients minds at ease by having a University study test to see if his keynote presentation actually resulted in a measurable change in behaviour.

Hints for greater happiness

March 27th 2012

We all want it but it appears that most of us don't have nearly enough of it. What am I talking about? Happiness!

Happiness research is now big business. Where once the secret of happiness was left to the philosophers to ponder, the world of science has since joined the party. Scientists want to know what makes us happy, psychologists want to know why, and marketers want to know how to make money out of our desperate need to be happy.

Why All This Change Is Hard To Do!

March 10th 2011

When I was an academic (in a previous life) I noticed that people in this environment were drawn to complexity. They would always find the most complicated way to explain something and always gravitated towards the most complex solution to a problem. My take on the driver for this behaviour was two things:
