The front of the postcard for our Socialive mentoring service. We chose it as being striking and versatile.
[Please note that this is an archived blog post and its content is no longer current] You’ll know from previous blogs how we’ve been speedily developing our branding during December and January. Our services are technically quite complicated and demand quite a spread of skills across different types of software programs. Goodness knows how many...

[Archive 2014] In January 2014, I created a 60-minute radio show for internet station Deal Community Radio. It involved a lot of unpaid work: about 14 hours of scripting, interviewing, editing and voiceovers to produce this experimental show, but great fun. I think the end result was interesting and entertaining. It had music from: Train...

Saturday 18th January 2014. They are billed as renowned clairvoyant medium Roy Roberts and international stage hypnotist Chris Gillies. I was asked to produce a radio interview ahead of their joint show entitled Two Senses of the Unknown and was really interested to meet both of them, having spoken on the phone. We arranged the interview...

[2013 Archive] The conundrum For a while in 2013 we had a conundrum: namely, how do we explain all our services in a nice simple engaging way? Although I’m not shy in front of a camera, at the time I didn’t want to front an explainer video on my website’s homepage. In the end I shortlisted two solutions....

Eyewitness is an occasional series of blogs that concentrates on some direct experiences we have during our work. I believe in constantly tuning in to the latest developments and trends. Much is possible from social media or reading ‘Wired 2014 – The World in 2014’, but nothing beats attending a live show like this. The 2-day...

[Please note this is an archived blog post and the content is no longer current] As part of our constant quest to improve in all respects (yes, companies should have continuous professional development too), I refreshed the brand last week, on the website and in print. We’re just going into a phase of stronger marketing,...

Western semaphores at Mit Qurashi. Dundit is 5kms west of here and has similar signalling installations.
I’m reproducing 2 reports about incidents last week on the single line between Zaqaziq and Mit Ghamr in the eastern Delta, and make some comments afterwards. The second is potentially more serious, but the first comes from a report from Masr al-Arabia last Tuesday: Train 590 heading from Zaqaziq to Alexandria struck a donkey cart...

[2013 Archive] I completed a sensitive and useful book for Oonagh Bastille of Haven Asset Management. This is entitled ‘Dying to Know’ and is by Oonagh Bastille, herself an Independent Financial Adviser of 20 years experience. She has brought her professional and personal experience together to write a book that will be beneficial to anyone who...

Egypt’s skeleton train service continues amid tight security. There is little news, and I haven’t been able to find any photographs from the past week. The country seems to be holding its breath ahead of tomorrow’s trial of ousted President Morsi. It seems any further normalisation on Egyptian railways is a hostage of Morsi’s trial, mainly because...

A 3rd class single ticket from el-Shuhuda to Etay el-Barud (via Dinshwai) dated 26th January 1995. (Author)
The spate of rail thefts continues, prompted by desperation among certain sections of society and easy access to the source, if a railway track runs through your village or district. This recalls the lazy decision last month by Cairo transport chiefs to simply bury miles of the Nuhas Street tram tracks under hardcore and tarmac. If salvaged and...
