On the eve of our second birthday I have been thinking a lot about what I want this business to be. To be fair this is something I think about A LOT. The challenge to be the person I want to be and run the kind of business I want to have is a constant companion.

It is easier when I just think about me, the human. I try to be calm and kind, collaborative and compassionate, fair and fun, ethical and inclusive. At The Bamboo Manager Project we have worked hard to consider what our ‘words’ are and unsurprisingly many of them are the same but I have recently added a new word which I think works brilliantly for us and that is ‘thriving’.

If you follow me on Instagram you will know I am a massive fan of the brand expert Mary Portas. I have long been an admirer of her work and her book ‘Work Like a Woman’ literally changed my entire perspective on my work life (maybe I will tell you about that another time!). Her latest book is a passion project entitled ‘How to thrive in the new kindness economy’ and it is a fascinating read. H
