    Shortcast : Looking Back or Reaching Forward?

    Is the past controlling your future? It is often past experiences that cause the ‘default’ thinking that keeps us stuck in the present and hold the highest potential to sabotage our future plans.

  • Shortcast : Living The Story

    Shortcast : Living The Story

    This weeks shortcast ‘Living The Story’ is inspired by my recent trip to Bristol and the controversial media coverage and history of the Colston Statue. Edward Colston was a 16th century merchant whose statue was erected to venerate the £71,000 he left for charity. It was successfully pulled of its plinth and ceremoniously dumped in the river during the Black Lives Matters demonstrations last year. The media portrayed this as an act of vandalism, and yet the Story goes much deeper.
