Remarkably perhaps, nobody has yet asked me to apologise for any of the content in this blog. Give it time.
However, in a pre-emptive strike, I am going to apologise for some of the tone here. Because I am conscious that some of the articles may seem to have an "aren't I great" feel to them.
But there is a reason for that. I am running a small consultancy business and the main commodities sold are my knowledge and experience. I don't shout much in the real world, and the business has done minimal advertising. Even at the current client, there are those in marketing who can see my skills in number-crunching and analysis but perhaps assume lack of eloquence. If the client asks for routine tasks then there may be little scope for real creativity. Likewise those working in technology may see me in marketing and assume I have no IT project experience. I am conscious that anything I say here may help to confirm or upset those suspicions.
So I am sorry.
