Brexit, how to explain it my kids?

Brexit-how-to-explain-it-my-kids

…and what are the lessons they can take away?

Whilst out for lunch earlier this week my friend was telling me how worried her seven-year-old son was about Brexit. He has become very interested in the ‘process’ (or lack thereof) and requests regular updates from his mum.

Brexit learning and development toolkit: If life is like a box of chocolates, how can we engage our teams to ensure that post-Brexit business remains sweet?

If-life-is-like-a-box-of-chocolates-how-can-we-engage-our-teams-to-ensure-that-post-Brexit-business-remains-sweet-
Way back in 2017, the head of the National Audit Office said that the Government could ' come apart like a chocolate orange ' over Brexit. As it turns out, this was something of a sugar-coated understatement. With Brexit less than a week away, we know that, unless businesses and organisations put far more effort and attention into engaging their teams,...

It could otherwise be known as Groundhog Day, given the carnival of repetitive arguments that have transpired since the UK voted to leave the EU. In the words of Albert Einstein: “The definition of insanity is doing the same...

We’re not talking Tommy Fury and Molly-Mae (sadly), we are talking Brexit; that looming economic disaster / exciting sunny upland, depending on which side of the fence you sit on.

menopause_AdobeStock_102135208
In May of this year the BBC dedicated a week to menopause awareness. In response, journalist Julie Burchill wrote an article titled: ‘Could the BBC please shut up about the menopause’ in which she used the sentence: ‘ A problem shared is a problem doubled ’ whilst she bemoaned the BBC banging on about this ‘uninteresting condition’.
