This is my first step into the unknown World of Blogosphere.

Firstly, let me introduce myself. My name is Alf Oldman and I am a UK-based, interim executive, consultant, coach, researcher and author. I am passionate about people, networking, politics and travel.

This blog is intended to be my own weekly news-sheet and occasionally my own personal soapbox. This blog is intended as a professional rather than a personal blog. I intend to share primary and secondary material, broadly related to interim management, consulting, coaching, and research. To give the blog a touch of colour, I shall also share material on my four passion groups, people, networking, politics and travel.

I have had my own personal and professional web sites for many years. I am also an “old hand” on LinkedIn with a public profile. Over the last few years, I have been attracted to LinkedIn specialist groups and have participated in a wide range of debates. This year, I have started experimenting with Twitter but recognise that the time is now overdue for my very own blog.

I hope that you like the choice of theme. I am also passionate about the environment and the countryside.

Thought that I had better check the spelling of “blogosphere” and came across the following definition on Wikipedia which may be of interest:


Finally, although I was searching for a simple strap-line, I settled on “Towards greater reflection and insight”. “Reflection” is used in the sense of a careful consideration. By “insight” I am referring seeing complex matters matters clearly and intuitively.

Well that’s the end of my first blog!
