Jean-Baptiste Alphonse Karr once wrote ‘Plus ca change, plus c’est la meme chose’ [the more it changes, the more it is the same thing] and this is quoted about as often as people say ‘the only constant is change’. Large and small companies now have teams dedicated to Change; Millions of books are sold with the aim of helping us change our lives, families and personalities. Here I explore the subject of Change and present some wry observations as to why we accept that ‘change happens’ and at the same time ‘nothing changes’ and why we spend a lot of our spare headspace trying to work out how to change things and in particular, those closest to us.

About John Griffiths-Colby

I have a wide-ranging background in Journalism, Business Consultancy, Public Speaking and Celebrant. I have written extensively for National and Regional magazines, providing satirical and lifestyle columns for the New Statesman and Italian Bike magazines respectively. In my day job as a Business Consultant I deal in business change and I see what works and what doesn’t, in life as well as in business. My blog is at All my talks are illustrated, just that; I talk and there are pictures which will illustrate and explain as a background to the subject. I am reliably informed my talks are funny, a little abstract but ultimately thought-provoking. I will adapt and tailor my talks to your audience as part of the fixed price. I also take commissions for specific material/audiences. My aim is to engage and inform my audience without being too serious. This will be a sideways view of life and the audience will need to think a bit, laugh a bit and take a new thought away with them.
