by Colin Scowen December 28, 2007


just a quick note to introduce myself. My name is Colin, I am an engineer with B&D at our manufacturing plant in Usti in the Czech Republic. I have had what you might call a varied career, ranging from theatre work, croupier, through telecoms and into power tools. I have lived and worked in the US, Canada, UK and Czech.

I am currently leading a small group of my peers into leadership. This is not because I am a fantastic leader myself, but because I have been lead into it also. We started as a book club, reading Maxwells 21 Laws. The guy who started that left us, and, after a brief hiatus, I started the group up again. We have a core of 8 members, but the door is always open. Literally, when we meet, I make it a point to leave the door open.

The aim is to allow ourselves to develop ourselves as leaders, and to help others to do the same thing. We do this in a number of ways, which I won't get into here, as this is a welcome note. If you are interested, or have any other questions, then just ask.

Happy new year, Colin.
