    Camille – LOVE the agility concept – clicked on this TED talk at the perfect moment – following, shall we say, a ‘ challenging’ discussion with my teenage son re; time management / approaches to personal organisation and school tasks ( and he’s better at this than I am!) – i found this such positive, timely advice – thanks for the steer!
