    What does ‘Having 2020 Vision’ mean to you?

    The expression is one of those rarely used, yet very familiar sayings that we’ve all come across at one time or another. It suggests perfect eyesight, of course, and whilst your optometrist may disagree, it is the case that to the average person, that’s exactly what 2020 vision is. For me, however, it stands out as a perfect metaphor to describe the year ahead.

    Never underestimate the power of your Brand

    I was watching a piece on Sky Sports last week, waiting patiently for some report on Wales' famous victory the night before that got them through to only their 3rd major tournament in their history. What I got, however, was an hour long episode of the Jose Mourinho Story...
