Never has a generation held so many useless, unused degrees and yet felt so entitled to having it all. Unfortunately selfishness just might be our legacy. Our tombstones would read "A bunch of educated fools.", if anyone were around to see them.

It's 6.17 on Wednesday morning. It's dark and quiet. Yesterday Prime Minister Theresa May gave the go-ahead to the third runway at Heathrow. "God,...

Need A Job Before Going Into Labor Again

I am caught in the rut. Again. I am sending out brutally polished CVs to companies whose names I can barely pronounce. I am writing motivation letters for jobs I am least motivated to do. I am blatantly exaggerating business skills I hardly possess. And worst of all, I am sitting through interviews with people I barely find bearable. All this for what? I am desperate for a job. Not "a job". "The job!"

Corporates Not Paying Staff Overtime Are A Bunch Of Robbing Criminals!

What I'd like to know is, do these workers ever consider all the time they waste on internet shopping, booking holidays, talking to their mums and friends, surfing social media, nipping out for an extra unscripted fag or loo break?

It's the kind of headline that could almost have you wondering whether you had one too many after all on New Year's Eve, and have just woken from a long and boozy slumber to find it's April Fool's Day already. Check the date - it's not 1 April, and these people mean it.

What Do Coffee Shops, Energy Companies and the Chinese Communist Party Have in Common?

Letting go and giving stakeholders a louder say in how things are run is now - paradoxically - a core component of staying in control for many large organisations, whether capitalist or communist, or a fashionably modern mixture of both.

Break the Chains - Power to the People of Godalming, Surrey

I learnt this at a town meeting in Godalming, Surrey where residents are trying to fight the supermarket chain in the hope of replicating the success of Totnes v. Costa Coffee this week. Does the success of Totnes inspire other towns to believe that they, too, can win over large corporations or was it a 'once in a blue moon' retreat? I hope that Godalming will boost this statistic because communities need some more blue moons or else all towns will become faceless replicas of branded Britain.

Much of what I talk about and what we teach at Denny Training, is to ensure that at all times, the customer is at the forefront of every decision we make.

Wasting An Opportunity

Guilting children into finishing their dinner with "there are starving families in Africa" might be a well intended and sometimes successful parenting tip, but how much more effective if we could start guilting adults and corporations with the same line.

How the Occupy London Protesters Shook the Church

Conor's words reflect a general feeling in the Occupy London camp outside St Paul's cathedral that this is a Church that has lost its way. The protest was never aimed at Christianity; it was intended to challenge the corporate greed of big business but, say the protesters, the cathedral's reaction has highlighted just how pervasive the problem is in our society.
