After some years of thinking and dreaming about a website of ideas and resources, here it is. “Short on Ideas”. It is a play on words using my family name. It’s based on 50 years of networking internationally. This has generated a wide range of creative material. The basic desire is to encourage ideas-sharing. Also to further develop creative projects that may be bubbling away on your back-burner right now.
Have travelled extensively internationally over the past forty years. I’ve been privileged to observe and experience many fascinating projects. During these years, I’ve also gleaned ideas worth sharing, witnessed unusual incidents and discovered creative initiatives.
Ten years teaching in Melanesia with the International Education Agency was extremely professionally enriching. These have been followed by 35 years or so of involvement with an international educational project. This was based on a historic oceangoing vessel operated by GBA Ships.
Since relocating to the UK in 2005, have been involved in mentoring alumni of the ships. Have also been invited to become involved in advisory roles with various Boards of Trustees. Ongoing networking with folk internationally in the area or ideas and resources is another “hobby”. One of these involved linking folk together to initiate a bakery in an orphanage. Another linking micro-business entrepreneurs with experts in various fields to enable them to move forward with their chosen micro-enterprises.
Areas of interest are travel, creative initiatives and quality businesses. Other interests are craft projects, development projects, funding ideas, customer service, generosity, entrepreneurial initiatives.
