London’s house prices face drop if Brexit no deal goes ahead


The UK’s housing market will undergo a “modest correction” if the country leaves the European Union without a deal, with the biggest fall seen in London, a Reuters poll has predicted.

The survey of 25 market watchers conducted last week forecast that in the event of a no-deal Brexit, prices would drop nationally by 1%.

The correction would be most exaggerated in London’s overvalued market, where average prices could fall by 3% in the six months after the 29 March, if the UK crashes out.

Book Review – “The One Thing” by Gary Keller with Jay Papasan


“If you chase two rabbits, you will not catch either one”

The primary aim of the book was to talk about focus and the surprising extraordinary results you can get when you focus. It was a nice and easy read, with each chapter ending with a summary of that chapter noted under the heading as Big Ideas. My take away from this book was:

Success is sequential, not simultaneous. No one actually has the discipline to acquire more than one powerful habit at a time. Super-successful people aren’t superhuman at all; they’ve just used selected discipline to develop a few significant habits. One at a time. Over time. Habits on average, take 66 days to form.

If you are looking for tips on how to focus better this is an essential read and they also provide extra materials via their website –

Julie Hogbin – The Power of Talent Dynamics


On Tuesday 4th December we have Julie Hogbin coming to the Co-Op. Julie will be talking about Talent Dynamics and how you can maximise your performance levels.

Julie’s belief true is that “In the day of ‘now’ those who think that the skills of ‘yesteryear’ will suffice will find out differently” all of us need to continuously develop to keep up in a fast-changing world or we will fade by the wayside. It has never been so important to change and adopt new ways of, not only working but thinking and behaving as well.

The principle behind Talent Dynamics is that individuals, teams and companies are at their best when they are in flow. Put simply, flow is your path of least resistance. Talent Dynamics provides an explicit path to building trust and flow, with your customers, your team, your partners and anyone else you may need to work with.

Talent Dynamics will allow you to build trust with key players easily and reduce stress levels on how to ‘handle’ your business partners. Talent Dynamics will also allow you to ‘understand’ the language & behaviours of your co-workers and partners.

We look forward to seeing you on Tuesday 4th December.
