Welcome to our newsletter. You’ve received it because either you requested it (extra thanks!) or Kay or Jeremy have met you on our travels.
We offer a change from other newsletters which do demand an awful lot of reading, and hope you will find it diverting.
We aim to publish once every two weeks, but sometimes the flesh is weak even as the spirit is willing.
How to get people to do what you want them to do: make it fun. (dur 1:48)
In case you missed it, the Chinese mother debate (referred to in the previous newsletter) has got as far as the BBC. And, for a different perspective, one of her daughters, Sophia Chua-Rubenfeld, has written an article.
The man who believes he can do it is probably right
Truth is the torch that gleams through the fog without dispelling it
Harsh counsels have no effect; they are like hammers, which are always repulsed by the anvil
Claude Adrien Helvetius, French philosopher, b 26 January 1715
Now, this is addictive! Answer a few questions and the website will tell you who you are thinking of. Truly spooky at times. It will bring you joy and amazement.
Mildly diverting, but makes the point.
Be quick! Two day course: 28 January and 11 February in Birmingham
For business people who feel they are not getting enough from their networking activities, or who recognise they are not being effective enough. People who want to maximise the return from their investment of time and money in networking. It is also for those who are reluctant to use networking for a variety of reasons ranging from beliefs about its effectiveness to a dislike of entering a room full of people they don’t know. Delegates will learn how to be clear what their objectives are in networking and how to get business from it.
All contributions welcome.
Thanks this week to
Jo Smyth of Wordworker
Martin Buck of Intelliga Communications.

Kay and Jeremy
