Recently, I had the privilege of speaking for Baker Tilly at their EMEA Conference hosted in the beautiful city of Belfast.

While I was there, the incredible people form the Belfast office took on a "wee hike" up Slieve Donard, their highest peak. I was happy to not hav...

Easier said than done...believe me I know. We have developed this horrible habit of only taking the negative comments and feedback in and allowing it to hang over us - way past it's shelf life. Somehow we are trained to dismiss the compliments and really positive thing...

Carrying on with the theme of Analysis Paralysis, as we dissect the process of achieving anything, it is often the first speed bump on the track that derails most trains. Ask anyone who ever reinvented themselves, either on a treadmill, from behind the pen on a divorce...

MAY 22, 2009 I left the tents of Camp 3 headed for the South Col to Camp 4 from where we would launch our summit bid. Every year I cannot help but relive the next following hours and days as my life took a turn. Upward and forever upward.

It isn't often that something from my Chuck-it list makes its way back onto my Bucket List. After Freddie Mercury died in 1991, myself and millions of Queen fans around the world knew seeing these rock legends live in concert was gone forever.

But last night was like st...

My Bucket List branches off into several directions and one of the many lists I am chasing is called my Wildlife Bucket List, comprising of all the animals on this diverse planet that I’d like to see. In no particular order here they are.
