Post-COVID business is going to challenge organisations like never before. The pandemic itself was clearly a challenge, a crisis. Many companies didn’t make it; some got by; a few thrived. It affected companies across the globe. Vaccines are helping to bring the virus under control, and we can see a…


Grinding through injury. Diagram of the knee from the front, illustrating the lateral and medial meniscus.

Grinding through injury. Yes, I’m working my way through an injury at the moment. After an intense block of training, my knee has started to complain. A visit to the excellent Rebecca Root tells me that I have “upset” a meniscus — the inner medial meniscus, to be exact. …


Dealing With My Depression
