The Beautiful Game


Well, today’s the day.  For the first time in almost 50 years, I have no-one to answer to.  No boss, Chairman, Board, Shareholder or Employee – just my conscience, soul and heart.

Time to play The Beautiful Game with my old/new company Red Rose Consulting – which I established as far back as 1995.  And which will now be my primary focus.  Its aim is to provide Marketing, Creative and Leadership advice to people I like, in businesses I love, in places that inspire me.  It will work with global brands, luxury companies, start-ups, passion plays, and will be based on four of my books; Lovemarks, Sisomo, Peak Performance and 64 Shots.

And it will play The Beautiful Game.

Last weekend I watched The Beautiful Game played out in Wellington by the All Blacks who scored four tries vs nil against the Wallabies, and at The Etihad where Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City baffled and bewildered West Ham with that new brand of beautiful passing.

Business benefits from the same approach.  Speed, agility, flexibility, collaboration driven by One Purpose and One shared Dream.

Bring on The Beautiful Game.

Dear Kevin

Steve Job expressed a similar soulful sentiment:


Getting fired from Apple was the best thing that could have ever happened to me. The heaviness of being successful was replaced by the lightness of being a beginner again. It freed me to enter one of the most creative periods of my life.
