'Be yourself' as Oscar Wilde said, you may as well be as everyone else has been taken. Being a woman in a very male dominated industry I am often asked has that been a hurdle, the answer is nooooo definitely not. In fact by and large I have always seen it as a distinct advantage.
As women we have fought for years for equality. We read constantly how as a gender we are striving to break the glass ceiling and change perceptions. But what if a whole industry was actively crying out for more female CEOs, managers and employees, but very few were accepting the offer?
For me, another area of interest will be looking at how certain athletes handle the pressure of the Games. There are a number of people who are coming into the competition with huge expectations to perform well.
Businesses in the rest of the country should get in touch with their county council and find out what schemes are in place to support and foster growth. There is free business support and money out there, and usually all it takes is a bit of time and paperwork to get it.
The Tour de France revels in its own history... split into several clear stories - the story of who will win a stage and the races for the yellow, green, polka dot and white jerseys, all split into 21 stages (or indeed, chapters)... the Tour de France is the only major sporting event that demonstrates such complete cohesion between event and brand.
Finding an investor is a big decision. Think of it like buying a car - Every model is going to get you from one place to the other, but they're not all made the same. The more money, the more gadgets (experience/contacts) but do you just need a run around to give your company that quick push from A to B?
Whatever the reason, the economic contribution of silver professionals is significant and also necessary, as the average age of the UK and US populations continues to rise- this at least is a fact nobody can deny.
I believe every woman is different and has her own personal style DNA and therefore needs individual, personalised advice on how to create visual balance. I have always been passionate about giving women the relevant advice and the tools to dress themselves in the best way, to create a streamlined look using a woman's individual body shape and colouring.
In life being different is a strength not a weakness. As an entrepreneur I have always wanted to stand out from the crowd and demonstrate my individuality. I learnt very early in my business life that you do not need to imitate others and found many people try so hard to be different that they actually just become poor clones of someone else.
Mobile is the answer... it's how 87%+ of people even in the UK connect with their world, and therefore, brands. Messaging Apps are not some kind of magic hippo chow that lets marketers get up in people's grilles again in the same way in a new place... Messaging and mobile are a filter for fail.
We know that disabled people have the potential, drive and desire to be our country's future leaders or entrepreneurs if they are given the chance. We also know that our best companies value talent and we're delighted to be able to connect the two. And we welcome support from anyone - NUS, Prime Minister or BBC - with the common sense to make common cause with us.
People who wear colourful clothes tend to have colourful, outgoing personalities. Black is a safe option, but does not say too much about your character. Blue gives the impression of trust and is used by a lot of business people. A scruffy outfit can be indicative of a scruffy/disorganised mind, and in the business world, you may repell clients rather than attracting them.
Don't call me babe. Don't call me feisty. In fact, in professional situations, can we just stick to my name?
Conservative crowing on unemployment figures makes me sick. What sort of warped world is it where millions living on poverty pay, trapped in insecure work, is hailed as an economic miracle?This weekend, when Labour gathers to discuss the party's offer to our nations' peoples, top of its list must be the creation of decent jobs paying living wages. Britain's place in tomorrow's world will not be secured by offering our debt-saddled, degree-educated kids shelf-stacking or sandwich making. Economic prosperity for all has a better chance of flourishing if the economy is rebalanced.
The financial crisis in 2008 humbled many of us, as we watched banks collapse, stock markets plummet, and regulation fail. We lamented the loss of jobs, homes, and savings, yet we neglected to realise that a segment of our population was being disproportionately distressed - adolescent girls.
abour is finally shifting ground on the railways with a real debate going on in the party about public ownership. It is widely recognised that privatisation has been a colossal failure. Despite record levels of public subsidy we have the highest fares in Europe and private sector investment and innovation is non-existent.
