In London more than a third of our trips start or end within 200 metres of a tube stop - helping complement today's public transportation infrastructure. And more than four in ten Uber journeys are now in energy efficient hybrid cars that produce less pollution... Over time this could become a real game-changer for a city where a million people still drive to work each day with nobody else in the car.
The rise and rise of small-time sellers on ebay, Amazon and etsy is well documented; some of them should have their own queue at the Post Office when dispatching their goods. More recently the poster boys of the sharing economy Uber and Airbnb have given users the simple means to set up 'on the side'.
In the 2008 Beijing Olympics I won Team GB's first ever gold lightweight rowing medal with Zac Purchase. Four years prior in Greece the story had been...
Being in Europe makes Britain stronger in international trade talks. By being part of the world's largest market, standing with 500 million people, Britain is a more important trade partner for countries around the world than we would be on our own. This has been demonstrated vividly today with the signing of a new free trade agreement between the EU and Vietnam.
Employment rights are ultimately of benefit to everyone but the fee regime not only undermines those rights but actively encourages rogue employers to flout the law and I say it should be scrapped.
When examining any issue there is an old saying that you should always follow the money. I have nothing at all against companies being owned by overseas investors. However I do take objection to overseas owners of Heathrow continually lecturing the British public over what is best for British people and for the overall UK economy.
According to industry body IMRG, in the period from Black Friday to Cyber Monday over £3 billion pounds was spent by online retailers, with the main ...
Investing in small firms is risky business. But with the right strategy - and a bit of luck - rewards can be unlimited. British business investors can now benefit from government schemes which focus on tax breaks to help plough funding into unlisted firms.
If you're reading this and you work in PR - or would like to get journalists interested in covering your business or brand - next time you go to pitch a story about a new website, merger or product launch, do think about Andy's story. Does your story have heart? If not, is there a story you could tell that does?
Obsessiveness leads to knowledge and eventually to mastery that, in turn, provides the practitioner with an authority that provides the foundation for leadership. That's as true for Bill Gates, Larry Page or Steve Jobs as it is for Pep Guardiola, Arsene Wenger or, indeed, Sir Alex himself.
The Trade Union Bill is not the only piece of draft legislation currently attacking unions. Largely unnoticed the Enterprise Bill is shuffling through Parliament. Mostly uncontentious save one clause that should cause alarm to any public sector worker facing redundancy in the next few years.
Money matters but starting your own business must be an affair of the heart not just a question of the head.
Don't fall into the trap of buying something just because it's heavily discounted, the clock is ticking and the flash sale is about to end - this is what shops want you to do! It's easy to be tempted, but if something's not on your list, walk away.
Black Friday marks the beginning of the Christmas shopping season. It also often marks the beginning of pre-Christmas panic. All of a sudden Christmas is less than 4 weeks away and there is a lot to do. The urgency and chaos that Black Friday creates doesn't help you to feel confident about the situation - in fact it makes you panic even more.
It is important we act, and act now to reverse the course that threatens the future of hundreds of thousands of young women. I am delighted to be undertaking this vital work.
In opposition to the expansion of Heathrow are the usual suspects. The Adullamites, those unbearable holy Greens who want us to return to living in caves for fear of the slightest emission... However, the Government needs to consider the benefit of the country as a whole, economically and socially expanding Heathrow makes sense, further delay does not.
