20120822_1258-Edit-2a..So this is the bit where I tell you about me.  Well what can I tell you?  I’ve been a practicing Occupational Psychologist since 2004, and an aspiring Occ Psych for many years before that.  I’d say I’ve had a wide and varied career up to this point and I absolutely LOVE what I do… I am a true Occ Psych Geek.

I discovered this blogging malarky a few years ago.  Funnily enough, up to that point my employer’s Marketing person had spent years harassing, cajooling and bribing me and several other consultants but I never quite got ‘it’, it always felt like hard work.  I never knew what to write about or where to start.  Then, whilst responding to a LinkedIn group discussion, I had a ‘road to Damascus’ type moment and it all just fell into place and I’m now at the point of just genuinely enjoying sharing what I know.

I’d say there are a couple of general themes to my blogs, these range from me sharing knowledge, ideas and information to book reviews and ‘insights into my world’.  A more recent area that I’ve also just started blogging about covers advice on how to become an Occupational Psychologist.  I think guidance to aspiring Occ Psychs has been seriously lacking for a long time and I’d like to do my little bit to redress this balance.

Finally, if you like to know the more ‘serious stuff’ about who I am and what I do, you check out my LinkedIn profile here.
