Jessica Shortall TED talk (Headline UK)

I see a lot of great articles, blog posts & videos during the week and rather than just retweeting them or posting them in our LinkedIn group, I thought I'd round up the most interesting ones for you here too - aren't I nice?

Feel free to submit any other bits and pieces you've enjoyed in the comments below.

I'll try to make this a weekly feature, so keep an eye out!

Five minute break...

Here's one of my favourite episodes of 99% Invisible, a great podcast about design, objects, history & architecture.

This episode is about micro nations, particularly the excellent story of one very close to UK shores - The Principality of Sealand. Nothing to do with work or HR, but interesting nevertheless, and it gives you some handy trivia to talk about in the office kitchen!
