Start here

I started this website in 2000, as somewhere to archive articles I wrote for the Financial Times. I’ve added several hundred other stories, written for many other newspapers and magazines.

But since publishing How To Change The World, I have added content that was never written for a newspaper. It was more like a blog, but without the clear purpose, or the consistency, of a great blog.

In 2014, with hundreds of people signed up to my newsletter, I decided to commit myself to the blog in 2015. I would use it as a place to record and share what I have learned as a writer, performer, teacher, coach – and ordinary human being. I called it “how to change the world” because I’m still looking for good ways to do that.

I hope you will find it interesting, useful, or both.
