The New Geeks On The Block...
We are delighted to introduce you to our New Geeks On The Block. No, our latest recruits are not Johnny, Jordan, Joey, Donnie and Danny but they all definitely have the "Right Stuff" (Sorry, I'll get my coat - Ed)
So let's get to it, "Step By Step" (Hey, I've already apologised once - Ed)
Melanie is one of our Learning and Development Geek. She has over 15 years sales experience and is like me and you – with a dog named Boo, who was rescued from a drugs den! For 6 years she helped run her family’s chicken farm, but you should never expect “poultry” returns from her training, in fact we think you will “l’oeuf” it. Fowl and obscure 70s pop references aside, Melanie is a pocket dynamo with an infectious personality and sneaky ninja training skills that will delight your sales team and get serious results.

We know you will forever be a Geek and even though we can "never can say goodbye" (Sorry!) we wish you every success in your future confident that you will live out you favourite Geek value: Geek's Change The World

what type of manager are you?
Think about how you have spent your time at work over the last month and see where your focus lies across the three areas of TASK | TEAM | INDIVIDUAL? Is there a reasonable split between all areas? Might you need to do something more in one area or the other?

A few nuggets of Geek conversations on Linkedin this month and the questions they are asking?
Infamy, Infamy, They've All Got It Infamy
23rd March 2020. "The day we thought after 3 years of hard work, blood, sweat and sleepless nights our business would be pulled from under our feet" HOW WRONG WE WERE. Richard outlines some of the lessons he's learned in a retrospective of the last Covid filled year
Are You Going To Google It Later?
I think there’s fear to always be the person that "knows!" and that’s usually our ego wanting to feel valued and recognised; in reality we aren’t all experts in every field and it’s ok to stand up and say ‘hey, I don’t understand!’ Ask some questions...you might be surprised that you’re not the only ‘idiot’ in the room.
