Winning on Purpose

By Tony | Feb 8, 2017 | 2 Comments

Do you know what you need to do in order to win? On purpose? I don’t mean what feeling you need to have, or what attitude you’d like to adopt, what the latest book has told you to do, or what the latest technological marvel is that you need in order to ‘make it’. Maybe…

By Tony | Jan 4, 2017 | 1 Comment

Face it, you should be selling more. You’d like to make more money, you’d like to increase your market share, you’d like to get one over on the competition. You need to increase cash flow! But your commercial director is telling you times are tough. Rates are under pressure, and the competition is doing crazy…

I'm not what I thought I was

By Tony | Dec 16, 2016 | 8 Comments

I thought I was strong, I’m not. I have my family to protect me. I thought I could do it alone, I can’t. I’ve learned to reach out and ask for help.  I thought, I was clever, but as that lady in Game of Thrones says, I know nothing. I want to always be learning,…

Why can't we make Swansea great?

By Tony | Aug 25, 2016 | Comments Off on Why can't we make Swansea great?

I first published this on LinkedIn. Before I start, this isnt political, at least not in the party political sense. Neither am I aiming this at anyone in the public sector working hard.

I’m making a bit of a habit of working in transformational roles at present. Working with traditional media businesses in my case, and helping to steer them towards a digital mindset. It’s almost always about culture and neglecting that aspect of whatever change programme you are going to implement is going to lead to tears!…

Its Been A While…

By Tony | Dec 10, 2015 | 4 Comments

It’s been a while: A fantastic if obscure song by a band called Staind from 2001 yes, but also true of my blog! While I’ve been hanging around in the background and answering comments and generally tidying up around the place, I’ve not written much for a good long while. This is because my latest…

More Inappropriate Ads!

By Tony | Dec 7, 2015 | Comments Off on More Inappropriate Ads!

One of my most popular posts is the one that features old school ads that today, well, they would never even be published! We are all familiar with the idea that things from long ago are no longer acceptable, but some of these ads aren’t that old! Sexist, bigoted, inappropriate, they offer an interesting insight…

10 Ways To Get Started on Twitter When You Haven't Tried It Before

By Tony | May 14, 2015 | 2 Comments

A very good friend of mine is keen to get started on Twitter. He isn’t very technically minded, having grown up in a different world, and so he’s a little nervous about my previous advice to ‘jump right in’! Neither did he want to start his journey with what he regards as ‘advanced books’ like…

What Politicians Should Learn From Business

By Tony | May 8, 2015 | 2 Comments

Please don’t worry, unlike a million others today I’m not going to use this blog to talk politics! This is a marketing and business blog, and I’m only interested in talking about what I’ve seen during the recent election in the UK that might be described as the ‘communications’ or ‘marketing’ of the various parties.…
