How one company nailed the group 'hug'

They are an affectionate bunch - by accident. It's not how they intended to be and it certainly is not politically correct to hug your colleagues particularly in this era of 'harassment' claims, but someone had to do it, and they did it right.
In October, Marketing Eye will host its first corporate retreat for staff from around the world. We have put a lot of thought into where we should go, what sort of program would benefit employees, what our objectives are, and how do we engage our employees to go on the ride of growing the business to the next level.
As of a few days ago, I had never heard of Lauren Southern. That all changed when a fellow tweeter asked me if I have been watching her coverage. I hadn't. In fact, I hadn't read the news for almost a week. I have grown tired of fake news, sensationalism and spin that takes everyone away from the real facts. 
Has anyone else fell in love with the television show "Younger"?

The power of positivity in the workplace

Don't be fooled by not realising the power of positivity. It's not a Tony Robbins owned term, but a way to live life and achieve long lasting happiness. According to Google, the definition for positivity is:
The continuous fake job advertisements being placed on a scandalous platform such as Glassdoor, curated by scraping websites of companies that they have encouraged to hire their services, has hit a low point.
Did it ever occur to you that perhaps the only thing that is holding you back from realising your dreams is your mind? Not your capabilities. Not how much money you have in the bank. Not how you grew up. Not the job you are in.
The most phenomenal changes are occuring in our business right now, and it is exciting and scary all at the same time.

New York, what dreams are made of

From the moment I landed, my heart started to sing. I've been to New York more than 100 times, yet it still has me hooked. No matter what airport you land, you know that the drive to your hotel or wherever you are staying is going to make you come alive in a way that no other city in the world is able to do.

I'll sell my soul to see your face

After a walk through Rushcutters Bay Park in Sydney, Lewis Lambert, Ethan Perry and myself headed to the office. It is 7am and we are all ready to kick some serious goals. This song came on the radio from Florida Georgia Line, "Stay". 

"I'll sell my soul to see your face", a line that resonates and not for the obvious reasons. Remember I am a business person and most things in one way or another lead back to business. It made me think about the love I have for business, and the journey that I have been on. The vision that sits in front of me, and what it takes to get there.
