Many young people fear that they will not be able to travel freely if we leave the EU. That is nonsense. People can travel freely across the globe now and indeed were able to before we joined the Common Market in 1973. But I agree with this desire to break down the borders and that is what we can do in economic and trading terms outside the EU.
We'll never be able to predict perfectly what the future workplace could look like. But the bottom line is, businesses and individuals need to be prepared so they are in a stronger position for whatever the new world holds.
Endless reports have referred to an imbalance in funding between higher education and vocational education and the traditional stigma that is associat...
Labour is calling for a vote to remain in Europe at next week's referendum because we believe staying in the European Union offers our people a better future in terms of jobs, investment, rights at work and environmental protection.
The attempts to bully and intimidate voters into voting remain have become increasingly ludicrous. It begs the question: how do all those countries outside the EU manage on their own? Most of them do just fine. In fact, most countries outside the EU are doing better than many inside the EU.
Taken together, the chances for each one of these eight conditions for Brexit's success are not great. The chances of some subset of them happening are very slim. The chances of all of them happening are as close to zero as you can get.
The UK is a great success story and is now the fifth largest economy in the world. Our international trading history speaks for itself and English is now the international language of trade. But the global economy of today is very different to what it was when we joined the EEC, now the EU. Export opportunities in Europe are slowing and export opportunities outside Europe are twice as large and growing faster.
I still think of myself as a newcomer to retailing, but I've learned more about food in two years at Tesco than I've done in many years. It's been a journey which has left me mixed emotions. Too often, I've seen examples across the supply chain of good, edible food being thrown away. We have to fix this - working together, across the food industry, in partnership.
When was the last time you took time to meet someone for lunch outside the office? According to research in the UK, it probably wasn't recently. It is a real shame that the business lunch has been dying out because I am a firm believer in taking the time to get to know someone out of the office environment. If you want to seal a deal, or make a business partnership, I believe it is best to do so over lunch.
According to recent results published by TripAdvisor, London is the top-ranked city destination in the world. The 2016 Travellers' Choice Award was ba...
The use of the NHS as a political football in this campaign is sickening. Amid such bluster it's hard to discern what's right but I'm convinced that being a member of the European Union is the best bet for our most treasured public service.
The United Kingdom is the fifth biggest economy in the world, the eighth biggest manufacturer. Our universities, judicial system, culture, and our historic values of equality and human rights are the envy of the world. None of this is dependent on being in a Cold War-era trade bloc, and it certainly isn't dependent on the abdication of our decision-making to an undemocratic political union.
According to an ICM poll for the Fawcett Society, women are more than twice as likely to be undecided as to how they will vote on June 23rd. They are also less likely to state that either the 'Leave' or 'Remain' camp has addressed their concerns... One thing is clear, the public debate could benefit from a greater diversity of voices.
Please let's stay friends on this - I know I've been teasing the leavers, but it's done in jest. I do love a good-natured vicious argument but I will be the first to kiss and make up once the vote is counted. May the best camp win. The subject is now closed.
Are we in a new infuriating phase of the economic cycle, that one where a few individuals shake your faith in corporate life just when everyone has got over austerity?
To STEM or not to STEM remains a question, but it should not be the only one for policy makers thinking about economic and innovation role of graduate...
