Cumbria Nuclear News & Views - How Much??

Posted in NuExec Blog

Well another two weeks have flown by and I am now another year older! Honestly where does the time go?! So I was really delighted this week when Sellafield asked me to open their event "Opening The Doors to Opportunity" from an SME perspective. It was an absolutely fantastic event focused on Sellafield and their major contractors engaging with SME's, although there were a number of large organisations there too all looking for ways to get involved with the industry. The day saw the main contractors having stands, 1 to 1 meet the buyer appointments going on, a huge networking area and seminars on how to do business with those main contractors. There was a real buzz at the event and everyone was keen to network and do business. Everyone I spoke to from both the large organisations to the small felt they got something out of the event.

It is a little quiet on the news front which is really reflective of the industry, but I will share with you what I know.

Cumbria Nuclear News & Views - Come Dine With Me!

Posted in NuExec Blog

I am feeling a little queasy today after a very entertaining evening at the Cumbrian NI Dinner last night, where I was kindly invited as a guest of Doosan Babcock. I haven't much news again this week, things seem quite quiet but I will share what I know! – Oh and for the chaps that I spoke to last night, I decided not to go with the content suggested for my blog but it is still there in my mind!

I was also criticised last night for the lack of controversy and personal opinion in my blog so I will do my best to rectify this!

Cumbria Nuclear News & Views - DDP the Truth!

Posted in NuExec Blog

Hi! Just a quick blog this week as I have had a very busy week and don't have much time to have the craic. However with the official DDP announcement I thought I should at least let you know the facts as oppose to my speculation as in the last blog.

Posted in NuExec Blog

Happy New Year and I hope you all had a lovely Christmas. It has been a while since I wrote but I have been kept very busy on a project to deliver an Operations Manager for James Fisher Nuclear. I only have a couple of weeks left on it now but if there are any inspirational leaders out there that fancy a new challenge then get in touch.

I haven't much news and gossip for you as I haven't spoken to many people but I will share with you what I know.

Cumbria Nuclear News & Views - Cumbrian Spirit

Posted in NuExec Blog

It has been a while since I wrote but I have been away. However I am back now so welcome to the last blog of 2015 which includes news, views and a look over the past 12 months with some of my favourite blog bits!

First and foremost I need to obviously mention the horrific floods that hit Cumbria. Whilst the effects are devastating I remain in awe of the 'Cumbrian Spirit" it really is something special and never before, any place I have lived, have I ever known a community that pulls together quite like Cumbria.

Cumbria Nuclear News & Views - Too Many Men!

Posted in NuExec Blog

It would be remiss of me not to start this week's blog without mentioning the awful attack that took place in Paris last week. 129 people killed with many others injured all in the name of religion. I can only imagine what it must have been like to be on an evening out on a normal Friday and to suddenly be set upon by terrorists. The fear these people must have felt, the complete disregard for life displayed and families loosing Mothers, Fathers, Brothers, Sisters, Husbands, Wives, Partners and Best Friends. You can only imagine the grief these people are feeling. The fear this attack has instilled in people going about their day to day business is obvious. On Saturday I had to sit and explain to my 9 and 11 year old why this had happened when I didn't really understand it myself. I had to hold my youngest whilst she cried as she didn't want me to go to London in a couple of weeks as she thinks I will be killed. If this whole situation wasn't bad enough now there are daily reports of Muslims being attacked. The two latest attacks I have read about one was verbal and one was physical and both were on women. They were being attacked for their religion and it is so very sad. As I explained to my children these terrorists aren't Muslims they are extremists who have taken parts of a religion and twisted it so they can inflict pain and death on others in the name of their God. I may not be religious but what I do know is regardless to your religion no God would allow you to inflict harm and suffering onto others. The principals of all religion are based around kindness and respect. It is so hard with all that is going on to not hate and not be scared, but I watched a video made by a man who lost his wife and mother of his son in the shootings. He simply said "I will not hate you and I will not live in fear as if I do then you have won. I will live my life with freedom and have laughter and love for me and my son then I win and not you." What he is saying is so true. These people want us to be suspicious of other people, they want us to hate, they want our fear, they want us to fight one another, they want us to attack Muslims and by doing this they win. They take your freedom, they take your humanity, your kindness and your love. I for one will not allow that to happen. I will grieve for those lives lost but remind my children every day that life is for living and loving, as are the people in it.
