It’s been a varied week, ranging from articles about dragon boat racing to learning about German financial markets.
The former, an inspirational story from a lady in her 50s who was diagnosed with breast cancer but “refused to slide into a sedentary old age”. She took up the ancient Chinese sport of dragon racing, and her team is now ranked no.2 in the world!
My other highlight of the week was an exclusive interview with the CEO of a large German business. He told me – rather frankly – that the British spend far too much time debating and dithering in meetings when they should be delivering results. Oh, I hear ya!
To round off the week, a positive conversation with a potential new client. Woop!
Strathclyde People is published by White Light Media for the University of Strathclyde, and I manage the editorial for White Light Media.
The autumn issue has an enterprise theme, and as well as chatting to home-grown billionaires, we have also visited Whitelee wind farm for a picture-led feature on renewable energy; explored the final frontier for a feature on space research; learned about business in the Big Apple and brought together a number of inspirational alumni stories.

This is really interesting and inspiring – businesses take note!
