Bagpipes and barbecues: incentives abound to lure staff back to the office I don’t sense much interest in going back to the office among people I work with.

Re: Is the type of mathematics found in finance limited?

He was promoting his book on fractals + complimentary copies to key speakers. Most were bemused. He promised me a copy...

Re: How many elephants ...

I’ve been to Sun City. The bell boy who took us to our hotel room was so proud that Michael Jackson had stayed there that he showed us around his room too. Which year; before or after Apartheid? Like Rod Stewart. Was the bell boy (your words) a 6'.5" Afrikaner? Our driver didn't take us there....

The other men are saying, “I’m an estate agent.” I don’t know what the women are saying but I’m getting the tightening in the scrotum that I ...

Re: Linkedin me up Scotty!

No shortage of personal shrinks

Ik combineer coaching met mijn expertise en ervaring als psycholoog. Waardoor ik diepte-coaching kan leveren.
Daarmee kan ik in korte tijd mensen zichzelf nog beter leren kennen. En effectiever blokkades opruimen, in werk en ook persoonlijk.
