Can an Agatha Christie adventure actually improve your skill set?

I published the first version of this blog back in 2016 as an homage to the Queen of Crime.   Now, I’m revisiting it with a 2021 eye by asking a slightly different question; can our team building activities actually improve your skill set?  More to the point, what’s that got to do with Agatha Christie? ...

Virtual or Live team building – which is the best choice for my team?

Virtual team building activities were the way forward in 2020. Thousands of us converted our live events to virtual so that we could still fulfill the ongoing need for team development, even though we couldn’t be there in person. But as we’re now (rather terrifyingly!) nearly halfway through 2021 and we can see a g...

When being under pressure is fun (and useful)

It seems that my close friends and family really do know me well when it comes to buying gifts.  I wrote last year about my amazing experience with ‘A Murder to Die For’, and this year my friends came up trumps with a surprise visit to Sherlock, the Game is Now.

We know all the scientific stuff about releasing feel-good chemicals, and we know without being told that i...

Murder in the Dark

I’ve often been heard to announce that I ‘love a good murder’, sometimes to strange looks from people who don’t know me well.  It’s a question I’ve been thinking about a lot recently; where did this lifelong interest in all things murderous begin?  Does it stem from the games of Mu...

The Five Find Outers and Dog

Five is the magic number Many hundreds of children will have spent hours of escapist fun immersing themselves in Enid Blyton’s classic children’s adventure books.  Perhaps the most well known would be her Famous Five series, first published in 1942 and featuring the intrepid Julian, Dick, Anne, their tombo...
