If you enjoy short-snappy videos crammed with business productivity tips (maximum 90 seconds!), do subscribe to my YouTube Channel by clicking the YouTube button below. You can then choose between my playlist with Productivity Secrets from me, based on my thirty years hitting deadlines at the BBC — and a playlist of Management Secrets from senior leaders I’ve interviewed for my business, to create my Cut the Crap Soundbite Club.

If you prefer short-snappy reads (maximum 6 paragraphs!) then I hope you enjoy reading my Newsroom Secrets blog below … and if you would like more where they came from, do subscribe to my tips by tapping your email address into the box below.  I only post them every four to six weeks, so you won’t be swamped … and of course you can un-subscribe at any time.  But I hope you, like so many others, finds them both fun … and useful.
