One of the most flattering things in the professional world is getting headhunted on behalf of a renowned company. If someone rings you out of the blue and takes an interest in you, it is a sure sign that you are doing all the right things in your current job. When I started my first headhunting firm many years ago, almost every time I approached a candidate on behalf of a prestigious company their self-esteem would instantly be boosted. It would be a very risky approach to sit back and purely wait to be headhunted but when great opportunities do present themselves over the course over a career it is always important to grasp them.
I often say that my show is not about a belief system and I stand by this. For me it is about sharing the possibility of an afterlife. I ask people to come along with an open mind and allow people to make their own minds up/
What a yolk indeed. Excuse the pun, though this was my first thought when I heard the battle for the brightest and most talented employees within Silicon Valley had intensified with both Apple and Facebook offering to freeze their female employees' eggs.
Unlike Ed Miliband, I won't sit around deriding improved employment figures. There are problems we must fix instead of running negative campaigns - for instance, ONS estimates suggest that the average (median) income of the self-employed has fallen by around 22% since 2008, at least in part because many of the self-employed are working fewer hours than they would like. As the economy improves in the years ahead, some may prefer to move back for the security of full-time employment - if so, they will take with them valuable experience of huge benefit to the organisations they join.
The intention of this proposal is to provide adequate documentation to keep financial records and also to provide legal disclaimers for the purposes of protecting the account operator and user in a court of law if legal action was taken against them....
I for one wear the 'Alpha Female' badge with pride! To me, this stands for being highly charged, positive and a people-oriented person. It truly frustrates me that the label often carries a negative connotation - it's equated to being ruthless, nasty or needlessly combative to succeed at all costs. Those who embody the latter approach aren't setting an healthy example for the next wave of young female leaders, don't you think?
Trust means many things to many people which can make it quite a somewhat undefinable and vague subject. So what exactly is it? Why does it matter in a business context? And what does it look like in your organisation?
oday we have the collective duty to protect our people and our environment. It's time to reign in the arbitrary actions of corporate power and create the conditions for a more just and respectful world.
I just don't think Amazon can live up to its own expectations when it comes to the bricks and mortar store. Amazon has perfected the art of ecommerce, taking away the risk of buying stuff online, and making it seamless, accessible, and low priced. While it does ecommerce exceptionally well, retail experience it does not.
Eight executives have been suspended whilst lawyers and accountants pore over the books. Some details we now know, but why, and culpability lie in the future...
The brief was that they wanted a therapist to mediate with families who had appeared on The Jeremy Kyle Show. My eyes lit up like a Christmas tree and I faintly heard the audience applause as it echoed out into the distance.
Technological progress won't wait for planners to help capture this wind of change, it'll happen regardless. But it won't happen everywhere and wouldn't it be better if technological innovation was nurtured and supported to help revitalise high streets that have lost their way and become symbolic of a desperate Britain lacking in confidence?
They say you should never meet your heroes. Well, a couple of weeks ago I did. In fact, I got to interview mine: Professor Steven Pinker, Harvard's b...
Business is a competition. As soon as you open your first business you're at the start of a huge race to the finishing line. And it's not just one rac...
An alarming number of private tenants - sixty per cent - believe UK letting fees are poor value for money, according to a recent poll. The survey, carried out by Populus, found that nearly half of private renters felt that letting fees did not reflect the time and effort put in by the letting agent.
