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.

Sarah Creegan: What can we learn from the FLIPPING World Cup?
Creegan portrait hi res TU
Someone once famously said to Bill Shankly: 'To you, football is a matter of life or death!' To which he replied: 'Listen, it's more important than that.’ As we enter the business end of the World Cup, we have already seen a wide range of life-or-death emotions, both on and off the pitch. These have been from players, managers, supporters and...
