DALE X MURGATROYD

I am so excited to be announcing this collaboration with Marisa Murgatroyd and her new Experience Product MasterClass.

The Tragedy Of Picking The Wrong Recipe For Your New Business

If you’ve never cooked a dish in your life successfully, in fact, you may have failed to produce a dish many times.

The Pressure Of Accountability

Ignorance is bliss. I just finished the first week with my team for Project 2020. I’ve genuinely enjoyed being their Scrum Master and it’s fascinating to see what issues are coming up. My mentor Dr. Michael Hewitt-Gleeson ( who got his doctorate on selling under Dr. Edward DeBono) has a great story in his presentation…

Mentoring 4.0 – March 2019

A few years ago, I took on my first mentoring students. What a trip. Helping people take the next step in a business (regardless of if they were starting from scratch or already well entrenched in business) was a joy. I had no idea how it was going to work out. I learn’t so much…
