In the light of George Osbourne's ruling out a currency union with Scotland should the SNP win a yes vote on 18 September, the SNP's plan to share the...
As a business leader I have been convinced for many years that the most important strategic priority for the nation is the education of its young people. I passionately believe that business has a duty, a responsibility and a great opportunity to support our schools and to help more young people to succeed.
For a generation of consumers shielded from the realities of factory farming, brought up on picture-book images of Old Macdonald and his small farmyard idyll, reinforced by advertising and often misleading labels, the truth often comes as a shock. Putting farm animals back on the farm could be a big vote-winner too; many people mistakenly think it's where they are anyway!
The latest Quarterly Inflation Report from the Bank of England has seen Governor Mark Carney and the remainder of Monetary Policy Committee continue to emphasise that interest rates in the UK will remain low 'for some time'.
Nowadays I invest primarily in people who want to do what I did - become their own boss. I'm a firm believer that if you are prepared to put the effort in, there is no reason why you can't successfully run your own business... Technology has since come on leaps and bounds, which means you can access data and generate leads like never before. And the advent of social media means that building a brand and marketing yourself has become that little bit easier.
Things are looking up. Last quarter's 0.7% GDP growth places Britain among the fastest recovering advanced economies in the world... But translating improving economic indicators into strong, sustained growth will require a significant rebalancing of our economy towards exports.
There have been many studies that show that people perform best, are happiest at work when they feel good. At Mindvalley they focus on the strength of your social support - they say that it depends on the people you have around you, that support you, that make you happy.
The Prime Minister's so-called "women problem" is starting to hurt him politically. Now perhaps something will start to happen.
As someone who fears leaving my house, I know all too well the difficulties of being told that you're fit for work by ATOS or the DWP, when you're not. After all, who is going to employ someone who can't actually go to the workplace?
Over the last five years, there has been much deliberation about the need to improve the gender balance of our workforce. It continues to challenge most organisations and is a highly complex issue, woven into the very fabric of our worldwide culture and society.
Video is and will continue to be the primary vehicle for our collective consciousness. Moving pictures and sound have the power to instruct and inspire like no other medium. And video is still in its infancy.
In the work I do around gender differences I'm becoming increasingly aware that they are not as collaborative as I might have expected on the issue of gender differences. I think there's a bigger generation gap among women than men when it comes to this. I find that women are less supportive of each other...
If ever there was a sign of the changing nature of British enterprise, it was the recent publication of the CBI's new 'Creative Nation' report. Here was the UK's premier business organisation, traditionally associated with manufacturing industry, throwing its considerable weight behind the far less tangible businesses of computer games, rock bands, books and movies.
Today's shoppers are seeking a unique experience and by combining their local high street with popular shopping channels like mobile, we can continue to build support for independent retailers. That way they can not only lead the high street recovery, but succeed so that their retail sales are completely unquestionable.
I have a great respect for the down-to-earth common sense of the people of Scotland and trust that on 18 September they will see through this fog of corny and misinformed SNP propaganda that has been kicked around since the 1930s and vote no to uncertainty.
Given that we've been in one of the longest recessionary periods in recent history, it made me wonder: if each business or authority had chosen to present "one point of view", might we have come out of the recession sooner?
