The Kick Off…

They say your first blog post should establish your position – who you are, what you’re about and why you are blogging. So here goes.

I’m not a complete noob to blogging. I started writing in Spring of ’07 as a way of building my awareness. As Tapscott said – the only way to understand it (social media) is to dive in. Then a great position with a big4 consulting firm prevented me from continuing (all sorts of clauses about not running any kind of side venture).

3 years and many interesting challenges later, I am excited to launch a new venture and a new blog.  The Wallace Effect is about inspiring new thinking and removing obstacles to becoming remarkable (both personal and organizational). Named for Alfred Russell Wallace who provoked Darwin to go beyond religious sensitivities and think bigger with his theories, The Wallace Effect aims to provoke new thinking, develop new approaches and inspire full potential in people and their organizations.

I cannot wait to get back to the tools that will help me extend the conversation with people I haven’t met yet. Whether you write professionally or just to satisfy a personal itch – please add your 0.2 and join the conversation. What effect will Wallace have on your thinking today?

  1. Hi Gaby
    All the very best to you in your new venture! Loving the name “The Wallace Effect” – not a chap I’d heard of till I read your site.
    Am now following on Twitter – it’ll be great following your success.

  2. Hi Gaby

    New Tricks going well thanks. Have worked with all sorts of folk including nPower, National Trust, British Marine Federation, Church of England and of course still see quite a bit of our chums at GT and GT International. Also been working in Europe with other accountancy networks, Krestin International, IAPA (International Association of Practising Accountants) as well as ACCA and AAT. Also breaking into world of solicitors!

    The recession here has been hitting training budgets hard, so now have many more smaller businesses as clients which stretches us (easier to manage relations with three or four bigger outfits – but ultimately that’s unsustainable.) Life is hectic but fabulously rewarding.

    Your name came up recently when I caught up with an old chum from my days at NatWest National Sales – Paloma Alos – now with KPMG on your side of the pond! Gadzukes it’s a small world – and shrinking.

    How’s the family?

    Look forward to reading more here!
