“Lots of folk confuse bad management with destiny”

Kim Hubbard

When something goes wrong it’s easier to say that you were unfortunate, or that it couldn’t be foreseen. At Wardpower we don’t buy this. 

There’s no point investing in the right equipment (and putting it in the right place) if you’re not going to look after it properly.


“A journey is best measured in friends, rather than miles”

Tim Cahill

“The only thing to do with good advice is to pass it on. It is never of any use to oneself”
Oscar Wilde

Oscar Wilde clearly never worked in the critical power sector. When lives, reputations and (let’s not be naïve) large sums of money are at stake, good advice is vital.

But what’s also vital is that you trust where it’s coming from and are happy to act upon it.


“The secret of getting ahead is getting started. The secret of getting started is breaking your complex overwhelming tasks into small manageable tasks, and then starting with the first one”
Mark Twain

Well all of us here on the paddle steamer SS Wardpower are very experienced with the complex and we try hard not to be fazed by the overwhelming.
