Modern life and the Web gives opportunity for our egos to grow. While a 'like' might feel good, is it, in fact, holding us back? Does Ryan Holiday hav...
A three-point rescue plan to help stop the housing crisis getting worse as a result of a post-Brexit shock, prevent a sharp slowdown in growth and provide some economic certainty. The Bank of England alone can't protect jobs and homes. If the Conservatives politicians can't offer economic leadership, then Labour must.
Yesterday morning I sat in a classroom with 30 kids - all 13-year-olds. They were uncannily silent. Along the corridor, in two other rooms, the situ...
Whether you voted Remain or Leave in last week's referendum, the Brexit outcome will have ramifications beyond direct financial, political and socio-economic impacts.
We must embrace a genuinely bottom-up view of civic entrepreneurship so that the workers are empowered to generate revenue and better their communities. It will be about education and collaborative (often local) partnerships to let many millions of flowers bloom. For the UK in 2016, it is the only way forward.
Careers advice and work experience opportunities offered to young people as they progress through the school system have been ineffective for decades. With the issue receiving fragmented interest from successive Governments, schools have been ill equipped to provide the appropriate balance of guidance and experience that our young people need.
Those of us that understand the positive impact of migration to the UK must "hug" the migrants. We must remember that 48% is a very large proportion. Democracy may have failed us in the short term but we have to find a way to mitigate this disaster.
The pain of a national EU divorce was never going to be comfortable - particularly in the short-term. Nonetheless, fed up with what people viewed as a less than accountable EU, voters were prepared to take that risk. The long break-up has thus begun. Despite my natural caution and concern about the fallout, today I actually feel overwhelmingly optimistic about Britain's future. I also know that isn't where most people right now. Not yet anyway. Many have criticised the lack of planning for this outcome, so here are some thoughts about what Britain should do now in order to prosper in the future.
As soon as the results were decisive, UK tech sector representatives kicked in with some excellent and collaborative thinking about what steps can be taken to mitigate some of the potential fall out. As you would expect from a sector peppered with entrepreneurs, there is a level of optimism and belief that there is opportunity even in turbulence, that I find inspiring.
It was reported in the media recently that Sir Philip Green had taken delivery of a £46m private jet. This news was bound to be salt in the wounds of the 11,000 people at risk of losing their jobs through the collapse of BHS.
Our underfunded NHS now faces potentially catastrophic financial consequences of Brexit. But the most immediate threat to the NHS is not financial but human: the risk that members of its most precious, most undervalued asset - its workforce - may now wonder what on earth they are doing here.
Office culture is changing rapidly. Many companies now allow employees to use group messaging apps like iMessage or WhatsApp to talk to one another. It's a new and largely unregulated medium. The odds are that it's just a matter of time before careless employee chat habits leave companies open to cyber attack, costing them their jobs and possibly their bosses' jobs too.
The process of choosing David Cameron's successor will take time and will undoubtedly cause further issues within government. The negotiations about how to negotiate will take time, and may themselves be difficult.
I am devastated and I am angry. Today we woke to a deeply divided country. Nigel Farage's vision for Britain has won this vote, but it is not a vision I accept. An institution that we built, that delivered peace, that promoted equality, kept us safe and opened the doors of opportunity, will no longer play part of Britain's future. With this vote, the very fabric of our country has changed. The whole fabric of Europe has been changed. Our fight for an open, optimistic, hopeful, diverse and tolerant Britain is needed now more than ever. Together we will continue to make the case for Britain's future with Europe, a future millions of people have voted for.
We could yet see a second re-negotiation followed by a second referendum in which Prime Minister Johnson successfully campaigns for Remain, having achieved his primary goal by becoming Prime Minister.
Brexit is real. What should you do with your money now? Before the EU referendum I wrote How To Invest for Brexit. Let's look at how those prediction...
