Feedback is a tricky thing. But giving and receiving come with their own challenges. You want to receive feedback because, hopefully, you are both proud of what you have done, but also want to learn to be better.

Spring has Sprung

March 19, 2019

Hello and a happy spring to everyone. I am going to stretch the Spring metaphor as much as I can here, as by my experiences so far this year it’s going to be full of growth, new beginnings and experiences. This will be my first post for 2019 and is a bit shorter than my […]

Hello again, the motivation for this post comes directly from reading Gareth’s post a couple weeks ago. And if you haven’t read his blog yet, I couldn’t recommend it enough. It’s definitely motivated a bit of self-reflection on my part, I’ve also had some pretty big milestones this year and I only properly realised this […]

Somewhat unsurprisingly I am pretty passionate about A.I, probably comes with the job title I imagine. […]

I have mentioned in my previous blogs that I work in a very international team. We aren’t a very large team but we are spread out across Europe and usually have 2-3 different time zones to co-ordinate at one time. That’s not even including our extended network which is about 10 times the size of […]

Something I have discovered in my Digital specialist role is the difference in how you form relationships. When I was working on my Graduate program with Tork, most of the time if I was speaking to someone on the phone or in a meeting the chances are, we had already met face to face.  My […]

Hi, so first official new post on the brand-new blog forum. If you have a look around you can see there are some nice shiny additions to the pages. The bloggers (us) each have our own section of the blog, this will make it easier if you want to quickly follow a blogger. We also have […]
