I do a thrifty Thursday on my blog, a day dedicated to finding useful bits of info, chit chat, news or views online that I am interested in that week and think you good people may be too. Quite relevant to me at the moment is writing copy as I am re-writing my 'all about me' paragraph and basically all text that goes anywhere related to my business, so this is what I… Continue

Currently, Internet Service Providers can claim exemption from liability due to:
- Regulation 19 of the Electronic Commerce (EC Directive) Regulations 2002, which gives an Exemption from Liability for Unlawful Content to Information Society Service Providers…

I read a fantastic blog post this morning by a sale coach and strategist Doyle Slayton. He talked about the big issue we all have in times of economic downturn, and that is PRICE.
Doyle says that it’s unrealistic to think that price doesn’t play a factor. Everything hinges on the prospect’s pain, need, and/or their perception of your company’s brand/reputation.
Pain – If the prospect is happy with… Continue

I have recently attended a marketing and sales event highlighting the benefits of marketing and of social networking as a way of creating a network of friends and finding support (whether for personal or business related matters).
However, just as it happened in 2000 with the e-commerce boom, what we do not hear about is the legal issues anyone using or providing a social networking site should consider.
So I thought it would help if I shared… Continue

No, this is not a blog post about political parties and your voting preferences. It's about reflecting on how our personality and our preferences for the way in which we work, live our lives, and communicate impacts on others and how they see us.
As an MBTI (Myers Briggs Type Indicator) Practitioner I have been facinated by the recent debates by the Party Leaders, not only because of the election, but also because of the analysis by personality and body language experts. If… Continue

Intellectual Property (IP) rights are increasingly seen as a safe and popular market to invest in.
IP generates (extra) licensing revenues, when: (i) it is licensed out to third parties, (ii) it is asserted against potential infringers (who prefer paying royalties, than the exorbitant expense of IP litigation) and (iii) of course, it is used internally to achieve economies of scale and competitive advantage.
The increase in…

For anyone out there who has been frustrated at the high cost of getting insurance when hiring a car help is at hand!
Having discovered car hire excess insurance a few years ago after being charged more for insurance than the cost of my hire car I am a real advocate of these cost saving policies.
They not only cost a fraction of the price demanded by hire companies, but also offer better cover - they cover windscreens, tyres,… Continue

With everyone leading hectic lives juggling work and family, it can be ever increasingly difficult for a newly engaged couple to plan their wedding to the standard they have both always dreamed of (well i say they, i mean the bride to be)
With weddings on average taking between 250 - 300 hours to plan, leading hectic lives and wedding planning do not go hand in hand.
There is a common misconception that people don't need a wedding planner and… Continue

Somewhat behind with the blogging this week so apologies. Honestly, where is time going? The last few months have been madness...yesterday I was waking up and waiting anxiously for Father Christmas to eat my homemade mince pies. I am not a fan of this whirlwind in which time travels.
I attended a speed networking event today at Donnington Country Club with the lovely people from Berkshire Speed Networks, Catherine and John. Having been to a few events I feel I have a good overview of… Continue
