Women’s Equality Day!

Women’s Equality Day commemorated the 26th of August 1920 when women in the United States officially gained the right to vote.  In the 72 years that it took to achieve this right, thousands of women participated in marches, gave speeches all over the nation and held demonstrations with the goal of gaining national women’s suffrage.

Fifty years later on the same date, Betty Friedan called for a nationwide women’s strike for equality.  The three main purposes of the action were (a) repeal of the antiabortion laws (b) establishment of child-care centres and (c) equal opportunities in jobs and education.  Against all odds and despite ridicule by the media, over ten thousand women gathered on Fifth Avenue, New York on the 26th of August.  This was the largest protest for gender equality in all of US history.

Prior to these movements, respected public figures such as Jean-Jacques Rousseau and Immanuel Kant believed that women’s inferior status in society was reasonable; women were ‘beautiful’ and ‘not fit for serious employment.’ However over the last century, great women have proved these views wrong as the world has witnessed what women are capable of achieving, from the likes of Rosa Parks and Eleanor Rosevelt fighting for civil rights and equality, to great business women such as Sheryl Sandberg (Facebook’s COO) and Dr Kate Hersov.

Seeing with Fresh Eyes

The optical illusion of the Kanizsa triangle

We can try to find solutions to our problems by seeking advice from others or getting inspiration from a book, yet, according to Carl Yung, founder of analytical psychology: “All the greatest and most important problems of life are fundamentally insolvable. They can only be outgrown with a new and stronger life urge.”

“When we are clear in heart and mind — only then shall we find courage to surmount the fear which haunts our world.”  Albert Einstein

Appreciating value

A new year and the opportunity for a fresh start. For many of us, this time of the year sees us looking forward - setting goals, making resolutions, promising ourselves life will be different.

What if…what if all we have to do to experience more joy, more peace, more confidence, whatever it is we want… is to look at things from a different light? See our illusions, and appreciate our value.

I’m beginning the year with my new teaching, material that has come from my travels, about the diamond in our heart. The good news is – we all have a diamond. It’s our uniqueness. It’s our potential. It’s who we really are. What I’d like to show you is how to unlock the power of the diamond within.


7 Mantras for Becoming a Money Magnet in the New Year

When I mentor my entrepreneur clients, most of them are surprised to discover that I often spend just as much time coaching them on a correct money mindset as I do on sound business strategies. How you think and feel about money is just as important as how you earn it. But if you don’t think and feel wealthy, then you’ll never get to that point.

Last Thursday I was invited to attend the Start Me Up HK Venture Forum which was an event organised by Invest HK, a government department with the mission of assisting businesses to set up and grow in Hong Kong and the wider region.

It was a great day of connecting and being inspired, with world-renowned VC Tim Draper from Silicon Valley as the keynote speaker. Also speaking was Medved, CEO of OurCrowd from Israel; Doug Richard, founder of School for Startups from the UK; and Yat Siu, founder of Outblaze, each of whom shared their thoughts on how to build a successful startup ecosystem.

Guests were also able to watch the elevator pitches of 12 finalists of the Start Me Up HK competition in which 3 Grand Award winners were chosen. The 12 finalists were selected from 384 entries from 39 countries and cities. The instant polling technology was fantastic and something The X-Factor could learn from! 


Benefits of the Task list in SharePoint 2013

Whenever multiple people are working together on a joint project or initiative you need some way of effectively communicating what everyone is supposed to do.

You also need to track what everyone has (or has not) done in order to manage the project properly to deliver on time. I've always been a big fan of the task list in SharePoint. Read More.
