Management Responsibility

I think the responsibility of management is to provide a safe and secure job for their workers by helping them create a working environment and life of stress-free happiness, although it’s seldom achieved in the ever-changing competitive world of today; but that must be the aim and, although our business seemed to change every day, it was always with the thought of these principles, striving to make a better place to work in. I can hear people saying, “What a load of old shit,” but there you are, they didn’t know everything that we were thinking in our hearts and heads.

Some of our lovely staff; this picture was taken around 2007. Many of these people helped me in 2010/11 in my darkest days, and I will always be so very grateful to them for the help and understanding that they showed.

On the shop floor in 2007; another move and the inevitable changes

I always wanted to understand people, why they did things that seemed to hurt themselves, especially when they were successfully going up the ladder. It taught me very early on to help others as you are going up because, with the unpredictable way of the world, you could just find yourself working under a person that you have disrespected in the past, and that wouldn’t do, would it? I have found that there are some people who are motivated in life to help others, but some only to help themselves, and there are people who distrust everyone, even the person that they see in the mirror each morning.

Book Reviews

Having been bought this book as a present, i couldnt put it down after i started reading this. It is very interesting and compulsive reading, to see how you can accomplish anything from humble beginnings.

A great story from a man who merged property and business and started at the very bottom. Very down to earth reading and full of practical advice on business and life. Overcame adversity and turned the challenges into success and we get to watch the whole journey as if we were there in the book.

This book demonstrates a journey how one man worked around his dyslexia to achieve his life-time goals. Someone who encouraged innovation, determination and passion for everything. A true account of a successful, ambitious entrepeneur with courage, but above all else a family man.
