Help the Biblecodes get to the Feis

Remember the old Fleadh festival in London? Well, these days it’s the Feis – the biggest festival featuring Irish and international acts with a Celtic flavour.

Promoter Vince Power has put together a line-up that includes Van Morrison, Bob Dylan, The Cranberries, Christy Moore, Hothouse Flowers, and The Undertones… the line-up looks great.

And there is space for another act, but it’s being decided on by social media. The Supajam system features a load of acts who want to be on stage with Van and Bob, but I’d like to ask you – my friends – to go and offer some support to The Biblecode Sundays.

All you need to do is to add a comment of support, or vote on the songs they have uploaded – just a click or quick comment is enough to help them get the gig.

If you came to the last tweetup I hosted in London, or came to my last birthday party, or came to Angelica Mari’s book launch, then you will have seen how good these guys are. Do them a favour and add a comment so they can get up on the big stage with Van the Man…

Aftershock

The financial crisis of the past couple of years has shocked the world. House prices collapsed and jobs were axed. Yet, now in 2010 we are told that the worst is over and growth is back again. House prices in the UK are growing again at over 10% a year, according to some market analysts, and the economy is officially growing once again.

But are we just going to fall into the same trap of debt and chasing ephemeral growth to hit political targets?

Is there another way? Well, Philippe Legrain has jetted around the world to look at different systems and ideas and he has produced a new book explaining his views on where we should go next –  ‘Aftershock’.

The book launch is tonight at 6.30pm at the New Theatre in the LSE. Do come along if you can… details are here…

Aftershock

Author takes off shirt during PowerPoint presentation

OK, so you know how it is. You go along to see a presenter talking about something worthy and connected to your work. Something like outsourcing and globalisation perhaps? But how often does does the presenter:

1. Start off by mentioning the recession only for the audience to be showered in Monopoly money;

2. Change shirt four times while speaking;

3. Kick a football *into* the audience;

4. Get audience members to wave placards around from the front row;

5. Serve audience members food and drinks straight from McDonald’s…

Well, if that sounds a little bit different then take a look at the edited highlights from my own ‘Talking Outsourcing’ book launch.

You get all of that in about 5 minutes… enjoy!

Talking Outsourcing – Book Launch on Oct 1

My new book, Talking Outsourcing, is going to be launched on October 1st at London South Bank University.

Everyone with an interest in the subject is welcome to attend. It’s a National Outsourcing Association (NOA) event supported by the major IT services firm, Steria.

The BPO Strategy Director of Steria, Hilary Robertson, will be speaking along with globalisation expert, Philippe Legrain. I’ll be talking about my new book and hopefully we will all have some fun following the talks with a few drinks.

I’ve got a video on youtube here that tells you a bit more about the event.
