Even the banks are starting to realise…

I came across a video the other day on social media by Nationwide, extolling the virtues of face-to-face interaction, rather than connecting via digital channels. This struck a chord with me about how communication has changed over the years. When I started work (funnily enough in a high street Bank) we connected with our customers every day over the counter. …

Nowhere to be seen?

You might have noticed that our social media presence has increased significantly over the last 12 months. Which, on the face of it, might come across as slightly odd.

Have you heard about this absolute CLOWN?

Have you come across James Sinclair? In the last 15 years he’s built a business empire from nothing to £10 million a year. All in brick and mortar businesses, selling events, entertainment, leisure and a whole bunch of other stuff. And he’s only 31. Pretty crazy eh?

How valuable are your customers?

The other day we received a particularly glowing testimonial from a long-term customer and started to discuss how long they had  been advertising with us. We were amazed to realise it was almost nine years! One thought led to another, and we ended up calculating on a post-it note just how much business we had done with this customer over the years. Again we …

Sometimes you’ve just got to go for it.

Hi, in less than 24 hours we’re all going to be asked to make what is being termed as arguably the “biggest decision of our generation” when we go to the polls for the EU Referendum.
