There’s always one man who comes along and changes the game. He’s the wildcard that turns fortunes around and makes history. Under his leadership even the sinking Titanic can be saved. We’re talking about people who came, who saw and who conquered. They were instrumental in saving major corporations from financial ruin.

When companies that had held a dominant position for years cried out for help, these men answered. Let’s take a look at some of them and how their endeavors saved the companies in question.

Writing a business report can really make your entire career. If you write up a great looking business report and show it to your superiors, they could be really impressed with your knowledge of business and your company. Continue reading
Darren Rowse really hit the nail on the head for me in his post today, When Not Completing Things Might Be Good For Your Blog. He suggested the most fruitful reaction when completing a task, a project or a presentation is always to look for ways of doing it better next time. By all means have pleasure in what you have accomplished but never close the door on new possibilities that may be just around the corner given where you have arrived at. Clearly he has been very successful with his approach to life so it’s certainly something worth considering.

When hosting a corporate event, whether it’s a product launch, holiday party, or charity dinner, the primary goal of organisers is always to ensure that guests and clients enjoy their time and develop a positive perception towards the company.

Google has been operating its Search process for some 15 years and you might imagine that justified a party. You would be right but apparently not everyone is celebrating. It’s all because of that Google menagerie. Pandas, Penguins … and now we have a hummingbird. Continue reading
That phrase, Look at my horse, was possibly first uttered in the Ukraine as early as 3000 B.C. A person with a horse often develops a special relationship and a particular pride in their steed. That manifests itself in a wish to show others what it is about the horse that is so attractive.
A horse is a free spirit. It is much larger than a human, it is powerful and can move with great speed. Yet by patient training and working together, the rider and the horse can move as one. It is not at all surprising that if you have that relationship with a horse, then you wish to present that to the world. Continue reading
High productivity is normally associated with organization. That is why most people would be very comfortable with Mike Munter’s suggestion that it is best to be organizing your Gmail Inbox for high productivity. You will find that same thinking in other posts by Lifehacker and Mediacurrent on how you can use Gmail most efficiently. In this post you will find advice which goes completely in the opposite direction. It will probably also go against your natural inclination when you try to be more efficient. However if you are willing to take the risk that your e-mail efficiency can be doubled, then you may be willing to try out an approach which at first sight seems completely illogical. What we are suggesting is to leave all those e-mail messages in a great messy pile, a veritable haystack, and rely on Google search when you are looking for a needle. Continue reading

Text messaging has basically taken the entire phone related world by storm. In a text a person can communicate with someone through easy, singularly sent packets of data. Just within 160 characters, an entire wide array of information can be exchanged. And through all of these benefits, the chief features of texts would have to be that they are cheap and instant.
