Improving productivity in the UK is not a matter of getting people to work harder. It involves training, investment, innovation and finding smarter ways to do things. Above all we need to improve the quality of management and leadership across the board.

Coming Out Accelerated My Career Trajectory

For good or bad, the coming out process also helped me develop an amazing level of resilience. In today's ever-changing work environment, I would argue that resilience is one of the most important character traits and as a community, it's a skill that we've developed over many years pretending to be someone we're not. Now we can put that skill to great use within our professional lives in a positive and productive way.

In the public sector, above all others, this is very damaging for democracy and our trust in government at all levels. Effective accountability can strengthen such trust, as it can in every sector. Leaders have a duty of care in this regard. Let them more consistently honour this duty.

Despite growing evidence that the environment is not getting better that voice has faded in all our political discussions. We need that voice now from the Liberal Democrats and for me, as a committed environmentalist that would be enough to support Ed Davey.

Theresa May Cannot Lead Britain To A Successful Brexit

Rob Adam | Posted 20.06.2017 | UK Politics
Rob Adam

The Grenfell Tower fire may yet be Theresa May's Suez. Crises require leadership - in explaining the causes of the crisis and the appropriate responses, in defining the meaning of the crisis and learning the appropriate lessons from it.

Brexit will undoubtedly produce many more crises before it is complete, but May seems unlikely to navigate them successfully.

As a workshop facilitator, I know how important it is to get names right. It's easier to encourage a person to make a breakthrough with their learning when I can say, 'Wow, Elsie, that was amazing' rather than 'Wow, you at the back with the striped top, you're doing great.'

So in this election, don't fall for the smiles, emotional appeals, and appeasement. Instead, focus on one particular issue you care about the most and vote for the party that stands for it the best.

Eric Berridge

It's time for us to use today's innovative technologies, like Augmented Intelligence (AI), to take action, starting with correcting unconscious bias. We're already using AI to predict the weather and to process medical research and trial data for individualized treatment plans on an unheard-of scale. Why can't it be used to help close the gender gap?
