A really good initiative to educate the UK's children about food.
 
Whether it’s discovering an exciting new vegetable or exploring a real working farm, we’re inviting the next generation to have Farm to Fork experiences they’ll cherish.

What are your fondest food memories as a child?

There is a blog post doing the rounds about why you should never accept a counter-offer. I've taken slight umbrage to this as its written from the a recruitment consultant from a consultants perspective only. Having been a consultant myself I know why the message being broadcasted in the post is to NEVER accept a counter but I happen to disagree with it.

Back in April I wrote a post on the very same topic but from the perspective of somone who's sat on both sides of the fence - in-house and agency. I hope you find it gives a more balanced view on the subject.

Okay, so I've been dabbling with G+ on and off for a while but haven't been giving it the attention it really deserves. I'm going to spend the next month really getting under the skin of it.. Let's call it a personal Govember.

So. The question is for all you folks using it more heavily, if there were 1 or 2 top Google+ tips you would swear by what would they be?

Please leave a comment below.

Cheers

I'm looking for the answer to that question as well.. Haven't found anything (except third-party full-on recording apps).
