For those who are still testing the waters and  not already on the social media train, 2014 will be the year to hop on. Just having a twitter account, or a facebook page, or even just a blog does nothing on their own to build your brand. 2014 is the year to get real!

2014 is the year of social medai.. Or was it 2013. Here's an interesting citation from 2009

 

"The concept of Social Media is top of the agenda for many business
executives today. Decision makers, as well as consultants, try to identify ways in which firms can make profitable use of applications such as YouTube, Facebook, Second Life, and Twitter. Yet despite this interest, there seems to be very limited understanding of what the term ‘‘Social Media’’ exactly means"

 2009 Kelley School of Business, Indiana University

All about Conduct Risk....

All about Conduct Risk.... | Financial Services Compliance UK | Scoop.it
‘Conduct Risk’ is the buzz phrase you’ll hear everywhere in the financial services world today. Jobs abound for "Conduct Risk Managers" or "Head of Conduct Risk". But very few people seem to know what this involves precisely.
Lee Werrell's insight:

What does Miley Cyrus have to do with Conduct Risk? Is Conduct Risk simply a subset of Operational Risk or a parrallel partner in the risk world? Does the FCA have a definition for Conduct Risk yet or are they wanting the industry to define it for them: a kind of corralled crowdsourcing exercise?

Rise and shine! Morning time just became your new best friend. Love it or hate it, utilising the morning hours before work may be the key to a successful, and healthy, lifestyle.That’s right, early rising is a common trait found in many CEOs, government officials, and other influential people.


Margaret Thatcher was up every day at 5 a.m.; Frank Lloyd Wright at 4 am and Robert Iger, the CEO of Disney wakes at 4:30am just to name a few. I know what you’re thinking – you do your best work at night. Not so fast. According to Inc. Magazine, morning people have been found to be more proactive and more productive. In addition, the health benefits for those with a life before work go on and on. Let’s explore 5 of the things successful people do before 8 am.
