On the written word…

I’ve done a lot of business writing in my career. Plans and proposals. Requirements and specifications. Reports and reviews. If I had a dollar for every PowerPoint presentation or Word document I’d cobbled together, I’d probably have enough to fund a startup to auto-generate all of that stuff. (I’d call it something like “onemillionmonkeys.com”). I’ve even penned (albeit in the figurative sense) a few corporate blogs and white papers. However I have never, until now, raised quill to parchment to share my own thoughts and opinions with the world, under my own name, and for my own amusement.
That may be surprising to some – it certainly is to me – because I think of myself as a very strongly opinionated person on a diverse range of business matters. For what it’s worth I even state that publicly on my LinkedIn profile, a small pre-emptive strike if you will, to steady and prepare the beholder for the first barrage.
In future entries on this blog, I’ll no doubt cover a range of topics which I hold as important and interesting (and/or concerning!) to me, and all of which hold some common thread of theme. Indeed it may be that the only common theme between some of these topics is that they are items on my list! I will, though, do my best to tease out and articulate these themes, because if there’s one thing I am apart from opinionated, it’s a connector of dots…
