2018 is almost over, the Christmas decorations are being packed away in boxes and I’m recovering from eating and drinking far too much over the holidays. But before I welcome in the new year with friends and family, I like to spend some time reflecting on how my year has gone, what lessons I’ve learned and what I want to achieve going forward so that I start the new year on the right foot. So, here’s my year in summary.
It’s officially December and the countdown to Christmas is on! I’ve spent my weekend in and out of the shops looking for the perfect Christmas gifts for my loved ones. Which brings me on to book club for December. This month is a little different as I didn’t choose the book per say, it was a surprise! Introducing Blind date with a book.
A new book delivery can only mean one thing … it’s time for a new book club read! I’m excited to say that I’m back to reading hardcopy and this month’s pick is Nine Perfect Strangers by the bestselling author Liane Moriarty!
Earlier this year I attended The Brand Film Festival, a day conference dedicated to celebrating the best in branded video content with an awards ceremony in the evening. This, paired with my understanding of the changing video marketing landscape, has inspired me to write this post.
This month I’ve changed up my reading pattern by switching to audio books. This month’s recommendation for book club is Kevin Hart’s memoir, I Can’t Make This Up: Life Lessons.
Last week I travelled to our Leeds office with a few colleagues for a team meeting. We wanted to trial a new idea to bring our marketing teams from London and the regions closer together, and to soften the expectations that everything happens in London. This made me think about the key ingredients of a successful team meeting and I want to share my formula. Read this post for more!
This month for book club I want to introduce you to The Woman in Cabin 10 by Ruth Ware. One thing is for sure, I knew it was going to keep me guessing right until the very end. Find out more.
We all recognise the importance of looking after our own health and wellbeing. In my mind, a core part of this is taking time off to relax and escape. Last week whilst I was on holiday in Malta, I truly switched off and had time to reflect. In this blog post I share 3 lessons I learned in the process.
I’ve been a bit quiet under my health and wellbeing category recently, so I want to write this blog post to share with you what I mean by health & wellbeing, why it’s important to me and what to expect from this new section of my blog.
With summer in full swing, I wanted to share my reading list for the holidays with you! If you’re stuck for ideas on what book to read, then take a look through my 9 best recommendations.

This month for book club I’ve picked Faking Friends, The Sunday Times Best Seller by Jane Fallon. Faking Friends is an original take on a classic plot line. Everyone loves a good affair story, but a revenge story is so much better.
