How I conduct Policy Analysis

Recently, I got asked by a client to review their Health and Safety policy and if possible update. I can never forget the shock I felt when I downloaded the policy.

Basically, a policy is a series of decisions and...

Cerebral Palsy – One doctor’s irreversible mistake. A True Story

Cerebral Palsy – A doctor’s irreversible mistake. A true story. Why today though?

The Best is yet to come – My 100th Post

Wow. 100 posts in 3 years?! Only 100? Shame! Yes shame. Writing isn’t easy especially when you have many other equally important projects to deal with. Besides, I took a year’s break from blogging oops! writing. So technically, I have only been writing for 2 full years. 100 isn’t good enough but still it is a milestone I must celebrate. See the full list here – it comes with clickable links. So to celebrate...
