Today I am combining two topics to create this post.
The first is HaikuDeck, a new presentation tool with website and iPad app which makes creating a visually alluring storyboard very easy to do. In essence it uses key words from your text to provide superb images.
The second is Thunk and I have to thank Anna Schiffer for introducing me to this at a recent in-house training session.
A Thunk is a beguilingly simple-looking question about everyday things that stops you in your tracks and helps you start to look at the world in a whole new light.
Please click on the image below to see my HaikuDeck of a few Thunks and try them for yourself. Remember there is no right or wrong, just the opportunity to engage your brain…

In no particular order, these are the 10 blog posts that have been the most popular in terms of the number of views or comments this year. I was trying to look for a common theme, but I am not sure I can find one. Can you?
Do you enjoy being the centre of attention at a party or a meeting? Or do you prefer to be less in the spotlight? If networking events fill you with fear (or at least unease), then you might want to read this article which has some great tips.
Finally, do you have to be the brightest, shining star to make an impact? Is it only the larger-than-life extroverts that get what they want? Or can introverts also lead and succeed?

Part of a brand’s identity is captured in the choice of logo. A symbol recognised by customers, competitors and employees and ideally one that creates a feeling of empathy, trust and a willingness to do business.
