I attended 'The Science of Success' a 'Benchmark for Business' Conference with Daniel Goleman and Malcolm Gladwell today with Dirk Gilleard and Helen Dumville...

Dr Daniel Goleman is an internationally renowned psychologist whose books 'Emotional Intelligence' and 'Social Intelligence: The New Science of Human Relationships' are on most peoples bookshelves. His latest book 'Ecological Intelligence: How Knowing the Hidden Impacts of What We Buy Can Change Everything' argues that new technologies will create 'radical transparency' will allow us to know the environmental, health and social consequences of what we buy.

Malcolm Gladwell is a writer with 'The New Yorker' and is one of Time Magazine's 100 Most Influential People. He is the author of three bestsellers: 'The Tipping Point: How Little Things Make a Big Difference', 'Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking' and 'Outliers: The Story of Success' which argues that luck, persistence, determination and hard work are the keys to success.

It ws a great day and we were all inspired by the two sessions which helped us understand the science of success. It will help shape the blog for the next few months.
