This week, I met and had a glass of champagne (or maybe two) with British Actor and Concert Director Charles Grant. Charles is a really talented singer, actor, television and radio producer. He is currently the Concert Director at the Actors’ Church in St. Paul’s Covent Garden, London England (my hometown).
Charles presented “Chopin in London” at Winston Wolfe’s home, Loxley Hall, in Memphis, with the lovely Rose Cholmondeley, a Steinway Artist and Chopin recital extraordinaire. Rose played music from Chopin’s last public concert at the Guildhall.

Recently, I took a day off to celebrate with my Dad for his 89th birthday. As we are originally from London, but are both now US Citizens, I thought it might be fun to give him an “English Day” in Memphis. Somebody asked me – how on earth do you spend an English Day in Memphis? My response was, “easily”- here’s what we did.
We started out with lunch at Crumpets. We had a very English fare – Cornish pasties, strawberry tarts and Earl Grey Tea! We ate properly and slowly with our knife and fork and took our time to savor the atmosphere.

I’m always looking for fun things to do for my parents, so I bought them tickets & went yesterday to see the Dalai Lama! His Holiness the14th Dalai Lama, visited Memphis yesterday to accept the 2009 Freedom Award from the National Civil Rights Museum. I took my parents to his public talk at The Cannon Center on developing peace and harmony. He was very entertaining and interesting; here are some of the media quotes from his speech:
Today, companies have employees both on and offsite, which brings the challenge of managing teams they can’t always see. Virtual teams are potentially cost effective, providing that the company has the right structure, leadership, motivation and, most importantly, communication in place. This is where technology can really pay off by substituting for in-person communications. Organizations have a lot to choose from: email, text, conference call, video conferencing, Live Meeting, LinkedIn, Twitter, etc.; but too many variables lead to a lack of coherency and make tracking difficult. The bottom line is that the manager needs to know what team members are doing, and that it aligns with the vision and mission statement for that project. In my experience, weekly (or sometimes daily) phone calls with all of the team members together make a huge difference in the success of a project.
