How the Doorway Effect Makes Business Cards Still Relevant
You might think that when practically everyone you meet has a smartphone that electronic exchange of contact information would have superseded business cards. But it hasn't. Primarily this is because there isn't a convenient standard. You could try to conne...

Reverting to Emails: Confusion and the Indian English Language
In workshops about global email many people focus on their issues communicating with colleagues in India. Partly this is related to some deeper cultural differences that lead to misunderstandings. But many problems are also caused by the different ways in w...

Five Reasons Why Businesses Can’t Afford to Ignore Social Media
Many small and medium-sized businesses underestimate
the power of social media. This is especially true in highly-technical
business-to-business fields where the customer is another business rather than
a consumer.  Talking to entrepreneurs I hear many reas...
Talking to entrepreneurs I hear many reasons for this. Some say that their stakeholders don't use social media – which is almost certainly not true, they just haven't noticed. Others say that they have tried using Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn or other social sites but nobody responded to their ...

King's Cross Airport? One of the daftest ideas of British Architecture. I take it that the dopey architect in the picture was not terribly familiar with the art of piloting airplanes. No pilot would have ever suggested landing on a rooftop in a busy city.

Five Mistakes to Avoid in Your Professional Profile Photos
Scrolling through the People You Might Know section of LinkedIn I can't help noticing that some people have profile pictures that could damage their credibility. Some are clearly out of focus, underexposed, taken from too far away, badly cropped, squashed o...

Here's the second part of the series explaining in a little more detail the messages from my lecture in Lund on 8 April 2015.  In the first part I explained why even B2B startups need a social media presence. In this part I explain how you can create an useful presence with surprisingly little effort. (And there's more to come...).

Admittedly the opportunities for making epic selfies are much greater in space than in my office, but here astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti nails it with an image showing the ISS's Millennium Falcon style window, the Dragon spacecraft approaching with her new space-rated espresso machine and even an authentic costume from the TV show Star Trek. Beat that!

Google has a neat virtual tour of Abbey Road Studios on the search home page today. I can imagine that Virtual Tourism is definitely going to be a  thing as technology becomes less obtrusive.

Google has opened the doors to Abbey Road Studios! Explore, discover and play inside the iconic British recording studio.
