Former Chamber colleague shares 40 years of lessons in new blog

A former Chamber Colleague is sharing his extensive management experience through a new blog entitled The White Belt of Management?

Stephen Connolly was the Deputy CEO at the Chamber between 1998 and 2007 before leaving to take up a senior management position with a multinational organisation.

The White Belt of Management uses storytelling to pass on Stephen’s experience gained in a wide variety of sectors.

“During my career and particularly my time with the Chamber, I benefited greatly from the experiences of others and from businesses I have worked with. I am hoping by sharing some of these lessons, it will benefit others,” said Stephen.

“I am also hoping others will be prompted to share their own management stories via the blog.”

“The blog is based on real managerial situations I’ve encountered over the years and how these were resolved. ”

“Going forward the articles will cover almost every major business situation, including business start-up, growth, failure, success, change, acquisitions and mergers.”

In the opening article – Why the Title? – Stephen explains the thinking behind The White Belt of Management and outlines the kind of experience he will be drawing on.

These are tales told with humour, insight and self-awareness, and for those interested in subscribing to the blog, it can be found at
