So – How can you help me survive and succeed at work I hear you cry…
By highlighting and poking fun out of the dysfunctional ways in which we communicate and behave at work. By reminding you of best practices, giving you ideas to experiment with and challenging you to take action to improve.
My weekly emails aims to inspire you to be a better version of yourself. To make you chuckle. To give you the occasional kick up the arse. They often include fart jokes too.
I’m passionate about using 15 years of experience working in large global banks such as UBS, Barclays, Royal Bank of Scotland and Royal Bank of Canada to make work a better place for everyone. Logic dictates that by pointing out the stupid, annoying, crappy things that people do then less people will do them, and by pointing out the funny, positive, good stuff then more people will do that. I mean who doesn’t want to have more fun at work?
Whether you are just starting your corporate journey or have been around the block a few times already, there will be posts for you. I try to highlight things that affect anyone from graduates to managing directors.
Disclaimer: I won’t ever publish a post or story about my current client or colleagues, which can be frustrating, but seems like the sensible thing.

To find out more about the person behind the blog read on…
Noel, author of dysfunctional requirements, originally trained as a primary school teacher, but upon leaving university realised this was not his vocation in life. After briefly working in the fitness industry he moved into the corporate world where he has now worked for 15 years (and is still trying to find his vocation in life).
When not working, exercising or blogging Noel enjoys spending time with his wife, 3 kids and Chihuahua. Yes. Chihuahua.
NB. Writing about myself in the third person? Now that’s dysfunctional…
