A Very Merry Christmas

Well it’s nearly
here. The time of year when even the hardest nosed of commercial creatures switch off for the season.

At Scotwork we are no different.

We are putting away our planning tools, our diagnostic apps, our value creation engines and negotiation logs.

We are slipping into our comfy slippers, lighting the wood burner, scattering chestnuts all around the hearth and chilling the white whilst gently warming the mulled red.

Presents are wrapped with not a care in the world as to whether they are reciprocated. The joy is in the giving, and seeing the pleasure that creates in others (it is Christmas after all!).

So no negotiating (of a business-related sense at least) for a few days. Getting recharged ready for what promises to be a big year in 2017. A year fresh with all the hyper uncertainties we are going to be facing, like it or not. A cloud of possibilities.

When January comes around we have to be ready. We will be. Hope you will be too!

If not, who you going to call?

Merry Christmas from all at Scotwork.

The next BLOG will be published on the 11th January.

Recently, on a holiday in the USA, my wife and I found ourselves on an internal flight on a budget US airline. If I share with you at the outset that this airline made Ryanair look like the Savoy hotel of the airline industry, you’ll begin to get the picture. Anyhow, I was allocated seat 4B on a plane that the check-in steward told me was completely full – a middle seat; my wife was in seat 4E – a middle seat on the other side of the aisle. I had missed the bit about pre-booking your seat for $25 a seat; how full was the flight from Phoenix-Mesa to Rapid City going to be, for heaven’s sake? It turned out to be very full. Who knew? As we were waiting to board,...
