Maybe this is not the right time of year to be writing in such sad terms, but we all need to examine our conscience and ask whether we really do care about our aging population. This comes after reading the report a few days ago concerning the ten staff at a care home who appeared in court charged with a string of offences.

You may think, it's not possible, when you extinguish a lease, you extinguish the whole estate and everything that goes…Read More
Is it just coincidence that two rivals just happen to launch a similar product/service at the same time?
Each products strap line appears to have the other products benefits (or weaknesses) in mind?

There are many risks to consider when deciding to move into a market or implement a strategy.
If you understand the risks, you can avoid them and / or like the military have a set of "Actions On" if the risk becomes reality.

They have many people dedicated to isolating the risks and then find a way around them.

I gave a talk on Social Media for Law Firms at Veale Wasbrough Vizards in Bristol last week, as part of its commitment to their Connect2 Law members.
As well as Sole Practitioners and Partners in two to three partner law firms the audience contained young solicitors from the firm itself.
I hope my passion for social media was evident and my belief that social media and blogging in particular will form a vital ingredient in marketing the small law firm.
The impact,…Read More
