* The power of the customer (supported and made more… Continue

How effective is your business networking strategy?

It is likely you have a marketing and business development plan or strategy in place which will include titles such as corporate events and entertainment, work, direct mail, cold calling, advertising, Public Relations, sponsorship, seminars, pens with the company’s name embossed plus further headings.

Disciplinary Enquiries: the underlying legal principle

Can you remember when you were little and your parents used to tell you that there's no such thing as a 'small lie' or a 'big lie' and how you would be in the same amount of trouble if you lied, no matter what it was about?

Chances are, like me, you do remember being taught that principle at home, at school and at church. Chances are, if you have kids, you are even repeating the lessons for a whole new generation.

Why then, are we all so seemingly unwilling to apply those same… Continue
