Recommendations For Keeping Organised (sort of!)

I'm not sure if it's running an agency with lots of clients or simply the way life seems to be going but the challenge in today's business environment is keeping track of everything you need to.  I spotted this requirement as a younger man at University when I invested good money in a Palm Pilot.  This little device would manage my calendar in a digital format as well as tasks and notes.  It had a stylus and was in sync with my PC to ensure I had a back-up.

Today, the technology is more advanced and my calendar, contacts, to-do list, notes and even files are all available from my iPhone, iPad, laptop or pretty much anywhere else I'd need to get online.  It's great as it gives me the freedom to update appointments or notes on whichever device is convenient, knowing everything will be back-up and available from wherever I need it (thanks to online connectivity wherever I go these days).

Breakfast With An Olympian...a Great Way to Start The Day!

This morning I attended a business networking breakfast at Windsor Racecourse and it was a fantastic event.  As well as a variety of food and drink to choose from, there must have been over 60 attendees and they had Ben Hunt-Davis MBE speaking.  

Ben rowed for Great Britain for almost a decade, competing at six World Championships and three Olympic Games. The highlight of his sporting career came at the Sydney Olympics in 2000 when he was a member of the Men's Eight that won the Gold Medal, becoming the first British winners of the event since 1912.
