Slide WELCOME TO INSPO Inspiring Organisations, Inspiring You

Inspo’s ‘Road to New Normal’ Conversations – David Flynn of The Happy Pear.

The Inspo ‘Road to New Normal’ conversations are aiming to inspire people to speak about their experience of lockdown, good, bad or indifferent, and their hopes and apprehensions as they head on the road to new normal. It was brilliant to kick it off with the inspirational David Flynn of The Happy Pear. Watch to […]

Team Ireland – Now is the Time to Save Lives!

On Friday, I shared a post with you about using the flexible working time ahead to self-reflect on your career. I suggested too that you could use the time to (further) explore the powerful tool that is mindfulness. And as promised, I will start sharing content tomorrow to assist you in reflecting on your career. […]

Now is the Time!

Two of my favourite ‘self-help’ books focus on the now. Now is the Time by Sister Stan and The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle. The essence of both is that all we ever have is now, this present moment. And what we do with the here and now defines the quality of our existence. […]

I saw a live show of his on Youtube last week. His one song Discoland caught the eye (in an ideal world he’d drop the unneeded reference […]

The Inspo Soundtrack to 2020.

A personal vision is associated with greater levels of motivation, productivity and inspiration. Resilience (Outnumbered – Dermot Kennedy): 2020, like any other year, will bring you […]

Inspiration on a Small Scale

Inspo is about inspiring people. Last week’s post was about inspiring you to create your own ‘20/20 Vision’. At this time of year, there is a lot of inspiration being offered to you.  You’re probably reading words and phrases like ‘new you’, ‘transformation’, ‘big change’ etc. with regularity. Today’s post is an attempt to inspire […]
