Workplace Mementos

Workplace Mementos

https://youtu.be/5bwLMuOEf44 At this uncertain time, retirement, career moves and decisions to jump and try something different  are all on the cards for us all (well, mostly us more senior members of society!). While there is much to look forward to, there is often a place for a memento of a career, colleagues and iconic image from recent years. The drillers weight indicator clock- face is such an iconic image – anyone who has spent any time on a rig or drill floor will recognise the image – and the opportunity to customise with…Read more

In many cases, parts of the documented plan can be repurposed to provide effective tools that will help with practice or simulation exercises and – if needed – assist with a timely response in the event…Read more

Brent Field Connection??

Brent Field Connection??

https://youtu.be/LCf4CFdw5XQ There is much sentiment and nostalgia being expressed on LinkedIn airwaves about the Brent Field installations and our experiences on them over the past forty years. We have revisited a Brent clock-face design and would like to make an offer to “the old Brent community” of a unique and personalised/customised memento. In the video clip we show a generic Brent Field clock-face design … and a personalised version that can also include associated artwork or branding (even dated branding!). The generic clock-face design costs roughly the equivalent of a modest dinner for…Read more
Buoyage Coaching Tools – Hands-on Visualisation

Buoyage Coaching Tools – Hands-on Visualisation

https://youtu.be/OvHporrn9Fs Rules and systems of operation are developed and (required to be) applied in many industrial sectors – safety and protection of assets being the key motivation. Where such rules are applied globally, such as in buoyage and navigation, it is crucial that there is common understanding and almost instinctive adherence. This requires practice and regular exposure to the type of practical decision making that is part of the System of Operation – in this case … “The Rules of the Road”. Tools for coaching and simulation exercises on magnetic surfaces can play…Read more

Such tools bring clarity to people that you are briefing … and confidence to the people you are looking after!Read more

On-line & Video Presentation – Tools for making it easier and better!

https://youtu.be/3olypbdO_kk The ability to arrange face-to-face meetings for sales, coaching/training or technical briefing is severely constrained. Coincidentally, we are realising that on-line chats and meetings can be very productive, relatively easy to arrange and save a lot of time and travel. However, establishing and maintaining the engagement of your audience is crucial to a successful outcome … and just being a “talking head” will often not be sufficient to deliver your message or share your vision. Hands-on visualisation tools can provide a versatile and powerful addition for a wide variety of topics and…Read more
