August 25, 2016 | Catriona Pollard

5 women standing

I want to shed light on an issue that impacts women stepping into the spotlight, and ask the question, why aren’t there more women speakers at business events?

August 22, 2016 | Sue Lester

Good ideas will never help to grow your business if you don't actually implement any of them.

What if you already have what you need?  That secret to success has already appeared, but you missed it? The ironic thing about overwhelm from too much information, too many good ideas, is that it can result in the opposite – no ideas and feeling stuck.  So when you or your business is feeling sluggish […]

August 18, 2016 | Marisa Hoffenberg

Investing when the market is low

One would be forgiven for fearing the turmoil of the world. With the news awash with suicide bomb attacks; trucks that plough into innocent pedestrians and the political world resembling teenage pop concert.

Use a Chat Application to Sell Your Goods in China

August 17, 2016 | Lindy Chen

WeChat and Exporting

The internet in its early stages was used mostly just by computer experts in certain rarified circles and the military.  The computer wasn’t as personal as it is today.  They were highly sophisticated pieces of hardware that were kept in the cold dark basements of large organizations.  Many things that we use today were initially […]

How do you reward your staff when they go over and above your expectations?

I sat in on a great session while overseas recently with Michelle Hoskin, a business coach in the UK who shared a couple of really simple, easy to implement ideas for growing your business.
