November 2011? Seriously? I am a little embarrassed to be honest to have left Fashion Sausage for over a year without so much as a peep from my keyboard.

But then I have been a little preoccupied with a book, 2 weddings and 2 high profile consultancy projects.

Still no excuse?, Ok – you’re hard to please……

In that case I will finish with the apology and will start the sausage machine up again. Expect a continuation of the previous with a little extra thought and opinion. Subjects on my mind right now  include product development, reshoreing, supply chain, e-commerce, information flow, manufacturing communities, book ideas, retail business models, ebook launches, workshops and lectures.

But first, coffee.
