Sleep Scotland - England and Wales too

Share this content

It was announced yesterday that a teaching pack created by the charity Sleep Scotland is going to be used to help teenagers in Scotland to get enough sleep. In addition to highlighting the benefits of getting enough sleep they are also going to be advised on the impact of watching TV, using mobiles and computers late at night.

A great example of a simple thing we forget about that can seriously impact our well being. Like all of what I'm sharing this month it's not new. I just hope, like me, you find the occasional reminder useful. If you have all the energy you need and are getting all you want done in life then you're already doing the right things for you. Of course that's the challenge - what works for someone else might not work for you. It's about finding what mix of work, rest and play, and all that encompasses, works best for you.

So today's question is

  • Are you getting enough sleep?

That is:

  • Do you know how much sleep allows you to operate at your optimum level?
  • Do you know what personally impacts your ability to get this much sleep?
  • Are you taking appropriate action to make any changes needed?

If feel very sad about the amount of negative press recently about the outcome of bad purchasing. I just wish that many organisations would consider their training needs for purchasing before the problems occur and not after when costs, share prices, public perception and customers have been negatively impacted.

Gardeners understand that seeds need time in the greenhouse, lawns need mowing and weeds need to be pulled. Yet many business managers often forget to feed, weed and/or prune their suppliers. Why - because they’re only applying buying processes to their expenditure and not applying more rigour by adopting purchasing or procurement tools and techniques.

As the Purchasing Coach I offer a range of services dependant on the size of your spend and where you are on the Buying/Purchasing/Procurement continuum. These services include:

• Workshops and keynote speeches for managers (ok perhaps more accurately for manger who purchase and yet have not had any formal purchasing training)

• Masterclasses for purchasing managers working on their own

• Business Skills development for Procurement teams


To find out more about who I am, what I do and the positive impact I can have on purchasing in your organisation do visit or call me on +44 (0)7770 538159 or email [email protected]

I look forward to hearing from you.
