Welcome

Thanks for dropping by this site, home to my blog and to the page where I share tales of my own start-up experiment with Your Commercial Foundations (YCF). To encourage you to stay and play, I thought it might be helpful to give you an idea of how you might like to shape your wander around:

  1. dipping in and out of posts from the home page: a taste of each blog post can be found on the home page in reverse chronological order of when it was posted, all the way back to the very beginning, if you’re so inclined;
  2. by tag or topics addressed:  on the left side of the home page, directly under the oh-so-atmospheric storm clouds photo, there is a search tool. Type in your term of choice – there’s a tag cloud at the bottom of the home page to give you an indication of the spread of tags I’ve used – to get a list of all the posts tagged or containing that term; or
  3.  by category: which, to be fair, is not likely to be all that different to option 1 unless you are either looking to look only at the YCF Start-up posts. Or, I suppose, anything but the YCF Start-up posts. The categories menu is right underneath the search tool

All feedback – on my ideas, my writing, the policies and activities I write about, and anything else for that matter, except how I can make millions from home in a few easy weeks – are very welcome and will be treated with the respect and dignity they themselves express…

About the Author

Fiona McNee has over 20 years experience in providing business strategy, development and communication advice to clients from both public and private sectors.  Combining qualifications in both law and communication, she has worked with clients across a diverse array of industries, from ICT and energy technologies to agricultural and marine industries, to develop solutions to the challenges of delivering outcomes in an ever-changing environment. With an increasing focus on the innovation, creative and research sectors, she has developed significant expertise in identifying emerging trends and collaborative problem-solving that enhance relationships and deliver sustainable policy, social and financial gains.  As principal of BigPic and Your Commercial Foundations, she continues to be committed to using that expertise for the benefit of not-for-profit and commercial organisations seeking to tackle future challenges by embracing a proactive present.

She was raised on English comedy – the Goons, the Goodies, Morecambe & Wise, Kenny Everett, and the Two Ronnies) – and musical comedy (in which category she includes both Cole Porter and Austen Tayshus), so if she’s a little unrestrained and/or heavy-handed with the word play and puns, she apologises. She was also raised on Hollywood musicals and Aaron Sorkin scripts, so if she’s overly idealistic, she’s not sorry at all.

Oh, and on the off-chance anyone wants to, I’m fine with re-blogging. Unless you’re wanting to make fun of me. Although if you’re really good at that, we can talk.

 

UPDATE  24 August 2015:

With BigPic being temporarily mothballed while Your Commercial Foundations prepares to seek Registered Training Organisation status, there’s been something of a consolidation of posts on this site, as well as an attempt to streamline the listing function without actually learning any technical skills.  While the post dates may not reflect it because of the simplistic transfer methods used, the timing actually runs backward chronologically down the page i.e. end of the year at the top of the page. So if it looks like history is being manipulated, it kinda is, but not in an evil-genius kind-of-way.
