Is Now The Time To Buy?

March 28th 2014

House prices are moving into very dangerous territory.

They are rising so fast and are moving to a point where there is a very real risk of a situation that spills over to poor borrowing decisions, relaxed lending standards and financial market malaise that would threaten to end Australia’s multi-decade economic expansion.

The Future of Cities

March 21st 2014

SILICON VALLEY

This name conjures up word and brand associations like high-tech, Facebook and big data. But think about the name in two parts. 

Firstly, silicon - the raw material for most commercial semiconductors, the backbone of the digital world. Next, valley - a physical description of a geological depression with predominant extent in one direction. 

Put the two words together and we have the metonym for the US high-tech industry. This physical, analogue place has been driving digital innovation and the creation of cyberspace for decades. There is a certain irony in this.

When Business Marriages Turn Sour

March 21st 2014

Are mergers becoming irrelevant? Do two relevant businesses now equal one miserable marriage?

For every Fuji Xerox there’s a Sony Ericsson so below are my thoughts on the pros and pitfalls of merging your business.

February 28th 2014

First the good news. Routines and habits are a useful and essential part of running a successful business, and indeed a successful life. Routines bring order to chaos.

When you impose structure upon your work day you feel more organised and in control.

Your Business Is Losing Its Genius

February 28th 2014

Silos – they are a part of any large corporation – and they are the enemy of innovation & creativity.

Too often, in the big telecommunications companies, you will find marketing on one floor, distribution in a different building, sales on an entirely different floor, possibly even split across different states.

And what falls down the gaps? Genius ideas, a wealth of knowledge and team morale.

What Makes Us Happy At Work?

February 24th 2014

Smartphone Etiquette

February 24th 2014

 In the ever-growing world of smartphones and smartphone users, one thing has become fairly clear: We all love our own phone, but we hate yours. A self indulgent view of life amongst mobile & social technologies.
