Conference Bike

The ConferenceBike looks like terrific team-building fun.

“You share a moment in the outdoors, enjoying the company of 6 other riders; You go somewhere for an afternoon or a day; you take a picnic lunch; you move along on your on energy; renewable energy; you can also got a really good workout on a ConferenceBike if you want to And it’s a a great tool to network or teamwork. People even fall in love on a ConferenceBike”

Of course I don’t need a good workout, or to fall in love again, but I wouldn’t mind taking a group teamworking on one. The current price is 9500 euros which works out to about £6500 plus shipping from Germany, presumably you could go over and ride it back – you only need 70-odd people (twelve teams of six say) to pay £100 each to break even then one team a month would pay for storage and maintenance. I’m not promising anything, butg when I’ve got 70 people signed up I’m tempted to go over and get one.

What I remembered in the holidays

My close friends are becoming tired of hearing about me taking the whole of August off from work to just be – be dad, be husband, be me. But it did me the power of good and helped me remember several things that I tend to forget when back in super-money-making-machine mode.

  • The world really has changed – connectedness is all, creativity and innovation are all.
  • I am connected to a very diverse network of people, so diverse it’s hard to keep up.
  • What makes me hirable is the sum of everything that I’ve done in the past and am capable of doing in the future – and that a traditional CV doesn’t give the flavour of real me (yum).
  • I write well, espeshully if I practice.
  • If I keep stuff in my head, no-one else knows about it – its my job to share it, it’s your choice whether it’s useful to you.
  • My old website gets boring as hell after the fourth read.
  • Although I feel like I’m part of the conversation, other people don’t think so until I open my mouth.
  • There are loads of things that I see and then forget where I saw them – and a blog is a perfect personal knowledge management tool.
  • It’s OK to turn up late to the party – what’s important is to show up and be the life and soul.

    Which brings me here, inspired by the folk on the left-hand side (special thanks to Euan out of whose mouth I first heard the word “blog”) and ready to go.
