Just been reminded of a limited opportunity to go to a Business Scene breakfast event in London, at the London HQ of Metrobank - there were only 10 tickets left yesterday, they might be all gone by now: http://www.business-scene.com/event/london-breakfast-event

I won't be there, I shall be in Florence enjoying 25C & cornetto e cappuccino :)

Introduction
Focus Coach, Founder of TheBusyFool.com, creator of the Opportunity Matrix prioritisation tool, author of The A to Z of Loving Work

Do what you love for a living, and make a living doing what you love.  I believe we spend far too much of our waking lives at work to spend it doing something other than what we love.

At an individual client level, I help people find their Focus, those ideas, activities and opportunities that your love AND will create your success.

At a business level, I help you make the most of your precious time, effort, money & resources.  I believe there are only 2 Big Business Questions:
  • How much do we want to do this?
  • Will we make any money at it?
Everything else is detail, until you have a positive answer to those questions - only then do you spend the time to do a full strategic analysis and due diligence.
