Do your clients really want your app?
Posted on August 26, 2021

The Danger of Big Ideas
Posted on January 15, 2020

Death by Social Media Echoes
Posted on December 17, 2019
While the election is over, the fallout is just beginning. At an organisational and individual level, social media echoes have slaughtered expectations and relationships.
