  1. Hi,

    I heard you speak at the Academy of Chief Executives seminar with the ECHG programme in Birmingham.

    Your talk was very interesting, I was just going over my notes and wondered if you may be able to remind me of the significance of Phineas P. Gage and his associated head injury to the presentation?

    Kind Regards

    • Hi Peter, glad you found my talk interesting. Phineas Gage had the front portion of his brain knocked out in a railway accident. He survived, but his personality changed. Subsequent neurological research has identified this part of the brain as being important in personal decision making. When we decide we are interested in something that appeals to us, this part of the brain fires and appears to send messages to the emotional centre of the brain. In essence if your website is to appeal to someone, it has to fire up that "pre-frontal cortex".

When did you last paint your garden fence?

If you are a “big change” business, then you are like my garden fence. Leaving it unpainted for so long has created much more work, at a higher cost, than if it had been tended to every year. Ignoring reviews of your online activity for long periods also means you make more work for yourself and raise your costs.
