Another Boring Work Blog

A rolling list of work on the desk of David Thame, freelance writer on commercial property, retail, regeneration and regional economics. The hope is that PR people find it useful.

If Google brought you here and you are now horribly disappointed and unhappily baffled because you were looking for someone a lot more literary and, well, not like this, then you should probably head here instead.

Please note: I do not have any Twitter or Facebook or LinkedIn accounts - so any you stumble into are (scarcely believable, I know) from some other doppleganger David Thame, not me. There's also a www.davidthames.com site - and the s is quite important, and it's nothing to do with me.
