  • Let’s Talk

    Jules Newton and Tracey
    November, 2016
    We talk and talk and talk but we say less and with less clarity. We listen, but we do so with half an ear. We don’t listen with our full attention, we do so only long enough to hear what we think we need, before either tuning out, or going back to our endless to-do lists. Therein lies the issue.

  • What’s happening to my time?

    Grant Newton
    November, 2016
    As times have moved on, the world has opened up, and become smaller and more connected. This, in turn, has driven competition, so the need to move exponentially faster, do more with less, be productive, be competitive just keeps rising with the internet, the information revolution, the connectedness of social media, and the opening up of the world markets.

    November, 2016
    Scientists appear to agree on is that genetics have nothing to do with resilience, it’s all about attitude. This is great news for us as it means we can change how we cope with challenges by adjusting how we view them!

  • Demi-Gods of the Boardroom

    Avo Vision
    November, 2016
    If you have been in the business world for longer than five minutes, you will have found yourself at some point having to address a room full of people, or (heaven forbid) present that business saving doohickey cooked up by your R&D department...

  • Creating a Customer Connection

    Jules Newton
    November, 2016

  • Authentic Presentations

    Grant Newton
    November, 2016
    As communicators, we have a responsibility to ensure that our words are received and understood, and this is no less important in the presentation context. In fact I would say, if anything it’s more important and much more challenging in a group environment.

    Jules Newton
    August, 2016
    I always wanted to be the suave, sophisticated business woman who could just drop a word in an ear here, or quietly suggest something there, and it just got done. Like magic.

    Clayton Botha
    March, 2016
    Before the 20th century, entrepreneurship was seen as an extremely male-dominated pursuit. Today, however, many of the world’s most successful, memorable, and inspirational entrepreneurs are women.
