Following on from our work on positioning, with Fergus King at Shirlaws Group, we have been taking bold steps to cement our position as a sales enablement partner.

Over the past while, we have been looking at words that describe us. After much thought, we agreed on one word:

⭐BOLDNESS⭐

The Cambridge Dictionary states 'boldness' as "a brave and confident way of behaving that shows no fear".

We love this word, as it represents how we feel in ourselves as a business, and how we are fearless in the way that we uphold our vision.

The managerial obsession with 'busywork'

The ripple effect of pointless tasks...

“It's a sign of lack of trust and lack of care. The real tragedy of busywork is in the opportunity that is lost. There’s so much that could be done within that time that would be beneficial to both the employee and the firm.”
