Issue #365

5th January 2020

Happy New Year and welcome to the first Thought Shrapnel newsletter of 2020! I'm looking forward to continuing to surface things this year that warrant your attention.

    As mentioned at the end of last year, there are some (positive!) changes coming this year including me having more availability to work with you and your organisation on projects. Please email for more details on how I can help.

    Let me know what I've shared that resonates with you this week, and also if you'd like to be featured in an upcoming microcast. It would just be a bit of a ramble chat about stuff you're interested in! 🙂
