Lets begin by busting the myth that you catch a cold if you go out in the cold with wet hair. Cold is a virus and you can only get it from somebody else or from germs in the environment around you.
How does a virus work? In order to take hold, a virus must get inside the cells and re-programme them to replicate more viruses, which then infect other surrounding cells.
So what happens when your body is under attack? Firstly your body will only succumb…Continue

I've been thinking. No, it didn't hurt too much! Meeting new people is great; as is getting to know people better. It never ceases to amaze me just how interesting people can be and where conversations may lead. Oooh, don't you just love it!

Prior to the current economic downturn, we arranged an event for a Danish client, a DIY magazine publisher.
Every year this client spent their entire marketing budget on 1 event (a considerable amount of money).

It occurred to me yesterday that although networking seems an obvious thing for me to do when running a business we don’t all think like that.
I certainly didn’t. I remember being thrust into a BNI meeting, having no understanding of how it works, no networking etiquette and leaving feeling completely bewildered but compelled to go again and immerse myself into the world of ‘networking’.

Any opportunities will be given full…Continue

Well, as predicted in last week's NiS News, it's all kicking off big-time on the networking scene now 2011 has arrived and the century goes all 'teenage' on us :0)
