Focus groups encourage: feedback; knowledge; participation; engagement; and discussion. All very good reasons to why they provide massive benefits. These are my five reasons why it was great to attended SQW event on Thursday 6th of April at the Skills Development Scotland building at George Square. The event was supported by Young Scot and the…

#ScotAppWeek17

It’s Sunday night, the television is on and I’m relaxing before the beginning of another working week. However, last week was a huge learning curve with my Digital Marketing Modern Apprenticeship.

I’m Ready For Ya 2017 🍾

I’ve attempted this blog post many times. Honestly, found it quite difficult because it can be quite cheesy and predictable. Although, I’ve seen some very good blog posts from other bloggers about their 2016 adventures. So I thought why not! If I could sum up my 2016 in one word then it would be tough. Although I…

Why Do You Blog?

A lot of people ask me… Why Do You Blog? What’s The Purpose Of It? Honestly… I have no idea. I’m just… how do you say it… winging it. Trying something new. Trying to be creative with ideas. Thinking of hot topics to discuss. But, I can tell you one thing, my passion for it…

Only 3.8 per cent of those diagnosed will survive past five years… Pancreatic Cancer is the fifth most common cause of death from cancer in men and women in Scotland. So why has nothing changed?
