I've been working with a number of organisations to help them address their 'knowledge at risk' and 'knowledge retention' challenges. Whilst it is very easy to rush in and take management action to address these, often urgent, challenges, a more considered approach will enable better actions to be implemented and in a sustainable way.
A good way to start to consider the knowledge at risk (from redundancy, office move, talent grabbing, early retirement etc) in your…Continue

Tomorrow I present to New Directions Job Club on the benefits of Business Networking in Berkshire.
Apart from how excellent it is to view everyone in this site, what else can I say about the benefits and specifics of your groups?
Do you have any tips on how to get the most out of being at a business networking event?
In difficult financial times any small business owner looks around for ways to save some money and there are many areas which can’t be changed, such as servicing loans, rent on premises, supplies and logistics, but one item which seems at first sight to be able to be dispensed with is business insurance. Business insurance is a target because it doesn't seem to do anything. It doesn't produce anything, make anything run more easily or even make the tea – so why not cancel…Continue

More than a million SME’s are facing late payments in the UK as evidenced by research undertaken by BACS in July 2012 and confirmed by additional research undertaken by Aldermore Bank.
“Late payments are a continuing drain on small and medium sized business owners in the UK. It’s critically important, at a time when we’re looking for SMEs to drive the economy out of recession, that they are freed from the shackles of late payments” says Damon Walford, Managing Director of Aldermore…Continue

Have you ever thought about how easy it is to do business with you? Are you driving people to your website, only to drive them away again? Are you sending existing customers to your competitors by annoying them? And would you know if you were?
Sometimes I visit a website that leaves me feeling so confused or frustrated that after a while I just click the close…

“Be more concerned with your character than your reputation, because your character is what you really are, while your reputation is merely what others think you are.” John Wooden (American Basketball Player & Coach).
Our true character is made up of many qualities (some people might call them values) and when we embody those qualities, we are at our best. What better way to maintain a positive reputation in business, than to ensure that how we do business is a…Continue

I tweeted recently that if you play to your strengths, your weaknesses should pale into insignificance. Someone responded that if you build on your weaknesses they will support your strengths. True, but I think they misunderstood what I was trying to say.
It's no good trying to be a scientist if you're no good at science; or a market analyst if you're not analytical.
Ascertain what you ARE good at, then look for a job or career where you can build on your…Continue
