On October 17th in 1918, Margarita (I like her already) Carmen Cansino was born in Brooklyn.

Her father was a very famous Spanish dancer and her mother was a Broadway showgirl. They took the family to Hollywood to try and get dance into the movies and he ended up teachi...

We are 19 days into World Alzheimer's month, and iI was reminded of the sad death of Denis Norden a year ago today at the ripe old age of 96.

Aah, nostalgia. An old song on the radio, or an old film on the telly. Sweets from your childhood and a flake in your ice cream. There's nothing quite like it really, but does it have any real benefit, and is it a marketing strategy worth promoting?

Let me be the 94th person to say "I can't believe it's April already!"

"I know it's important...I'm just a bit busy at the moment." said a colleague to me not that long ago.

Imagine two emails popping up in your in-box today.

One is from company A. They sell bananas. You receive the email because you came across a special offer they had some months ago, and to access the offer you had to give them your email address.

Now you get frequent ema...

Classic quote from Jaws, but what does it mean?

It means the original impact of a situation has been glaringly under-estimated.

My boat topic today folks is employee experience and employee engagement, with a bit of Brexit thrown in for good measure.
