I've blogged about challenging like a three-year-old and saying 'but why?' rather a lot. That's my daughter in the picture, that is.
I've blogged about the need to be the grit in the oyster in comms and PR and to the need challenge. That scheme the chief executive has? It's going to fail and you need to diplomatically warn them....

Okay, so I may be easily entertained by pretty things but I quite like how google animates into a gif a burst of pics.. This is my son trying to be Freddie Flintoff after watching him play last week.
