Greater focus on UK tech talent essential in face of Brexit

Greater focus on UK tech talent essential in face of Brexit | Cocreative Business Buffer TV | Scoop.it
The UK is already suffering from an IT skills crisis, so how will leaving the European Union affect tech jobs now and in the future?
Jacqui Hogan's insight:
We need to get better value from our IT work force by managing them better than we do at the moment. I think most are motivated, but we need to ensure they are working on the right stuff and have the tools and support to do it well. That takes good management. (I can help)

10 Skills That Are Hard to Learn But Pay Off Forever

10 Skills That Are Hard to Learn But Pay Off Forever | Cocreative Business Buffer TV | Scoop.it
The best things in life may be free, but that doesn't mean they won't take time, sweat and perseverance to acquire.
Jacqui Hogan's insight:

Good advice! No 2. Having empathy could do with more emphasis though, especially on HOW to do it. You need to really CARE about people to be empathic. Being a bit interested isn't enough.

 

The hardest? No 6 - asking for help!

The legendary investor wants you to be as successful as he is, and he's willing to tell you how.
Jacqui Hogan's insight:

Not new, but well put and a useful reminder. The ones that stand out for me are 4 and 6. Number 4 because most of us don't have a really good grasp over what is REALLY important enough not to risk. And number 6, because we not only have to admire those people, we have to like them too

Jacqui Hogan's insight:
Without suggesting that a vote for Brexit would be a disaster, which I believe, I do think it is worth reading this article before you vote. It is the clearest and most objective description I've seen yet of the options the UK would have if we do decide to Brexit.

Top execs share the biggest lessons they've learned after years of successful stress management.
Jacqui Hogan's insight:

Very interesting. I'm with Jeff Bezos. Stress, for me, comes from not doing something I should as soon as I can. And if I can't do something straight away, then adding it to my to-do list is the next best thing. Then, at least, I won't forget to do it when I can!

Your Late-Night Emails Are Hurting Your Team

Your Late-Night Emails Are Hurting Your Team | Cocreative Business Buffer TV | Scoop.it
So stop it.
Jacqui Hogan's insight:

I sometimes think that I'm the only person who doesn't take their laptop and phone on holiday (you do take a holiday, don't you?) Admittedly I do check my email once a day, but I ony respond to crucial queries.

 

Humans aren't meant to be on-call 24/7. That is the surest way to burn out. Late night emails are a symptom of an organisation that doesn't recognise this. This article is not before time.

In an exclusive interview, Lenovo's Mark Cohen explains how the Superfish debacle went down. Is this the beginning of the end of shoddy software bundling practices?
Jacqui Hogan's insight:

What a debacle! Lenovo should have known better than to bundle a s/w package it had not thoroughly checked out. They can bluster as much as they like but, at the end of the day, it was THEIR customers who trusted them and suffered as a result.

UK: Thames Valley LEP demands improved broadband connectivity | CASNE

UK: Thames Valley LEP demands improved broadband connectivity | CASNE | Cocreative Business Buffer TV | Scoop.it

The SME forum for the Thames Estuary Valley Local Enterprise Partnership (TEV LEP) has announced its objectives this week as it re-formed.

 

Head of business in the region met to identify the most pressing issues that affect the TEV LEP community.

 

Faster broadband access was a priority for many businesses, and take up in the Thames estuary is higher than many other areas.

 

Rapid take up is, in fact, a cause for concern for members of the forum, as they warned other areas may receive more investment in broadband infrastructure before their area.

 

Amanda Gee, Chairman of the SME forum and MD of Berkshire Media Group, said: “We were shocked to find that some SMEs report they actually have better connectivity in their homes than in their business spaces.

 

“We … believe widening access to superfast broadband across the region is vitally important as better access to broadband enables SMEs to create operational efficiencies in the way they work.”
