Global Governance Gets A New Image: Huffington Post

I suspect it was no accident that Simon Anholt's masterclass was held on the 28th floor of Millbank Tower -- one of the higher points in London (though, not yet the Shard).

How the new UK Government will have to rely on networks for stability

For those that were not watching the UK last week, we now have a coalition government made up of two parties - the Conservatives and the Liberal Democrats - who previously loathed each other.

New Publication; Identifying Meaningful Networks in Public Diplomacy

The potential benefits of collaboration rely on finding the right people with which to work and the right spaces within which to interact with them. One approach to the identification of potential collaborators within complex networks or evaluating the impact of resulting actions would be to analyse the series of relationships through network analysis.

The 'EGA'

I was walking down Balham High Road on my last trip to London a few weeks ago and looked up from being lost in thought to find my eyes focusing on the word 'EGA' on a sign above a coffee shop.

How can we change the broader culture?

Why do parents, mostly women, have to CHOOSE between work and family? Why is juggling and spinning plates the only way to have it all? What new models can we come up with that perfectly integrate raising children well with being satisfied in work and public life AND having enough money to be at ease.
