Respecting diversity is good business!

You learn a few words in their language. You attend a course on body language and you learn about social…

The other day I was having a discussion with someone who is more than 20 years my senior. He remarked how complex and difficult business and life has become. Things are being done so differently and technology dominates the marketplace. He admitted to being a technophobe and for the most part either unwilling or unable to make use of the various technologies that so many of us take for granted. It is challenging enough to get him to use his cellphone for much more than taking and…

Aligning personal and company values

Acting against this may appear to be curtailed by the fact that everyone enjoys the right to their personal values, a right supported by the bill of rights in the constitution.

Maximising returns on employee training

For a business to flourish, it is important to stay abreast of new technology, methods and developments in industry.  It is therefore vital for business owners and personnel managers to keep updating the skillset provided by their company.

Why Can't The Man On The Street Learn To Speak ?

 One of my favourite musicals "My Fair Lady" has always had, and always will have, a great and very positive impact on both my life and my work. Funnily enough, I was even referred to by one of my many clients as "the Fair Lady."

"A la Carte" Restaurant Communication

I recently attended a business lunch at a restaurant that I had not visited in several months. On arrival, I was greeted by the waiters and manager at the door and was then shown to my table. Once I was seated, the waiter handed me a menu and immediately asked me what I would like to drink. Seeing that I had just sat down, I decided to take a few minutes to make the decision. General greetings and exchanging of handshakes took place and within two minutes of having been seated,…
