Use of alcohol and/or drugs may not be perceived as a significant risk factor in some organizations but it should always be considered good governance in any company to undertake a Risk Assessment to identify any such potential organisational vulnerability.

Human frailty is always with us. But Alcohol and Drug problems may not immediately appear to head the list of significant risks to an organisation – however they may be the trigger for a major economic, accident- or safety-related event. It is often the accumulation of small factors and their interaction that results in a calamity.

Here are the three elements that should be the cornerstones of any corporate alcohol and drug strategy:

Times are changing, consumerism is dying, and we are entering a world with a new movement of individuals whom I call ‘post-consumers’.

Who Are the Post-Consumers?

Post-consumerism will be driven by younger Millennials and Generation Z – the generation that’s growing up now. Post-consumers will take great offence by the very notion that they might be taking more than they give. They will choose to make eco-friendly buying decisions, to demand to know the supply chain provenance of their food and their clothes and will insist on buying goods from companies that refuse to engage in unsustainable practices such as planned obsolescence. They will be sustainers rather than consumers, tribes rather than crowds, stakeholders rather than customers. Post-consumers will trust the word of influencers and friends rather than advertising/marketing.

What do organisations need to do to appeal to this new audience and turn them into investors?

If you want to get away from the city and start working from your dream location, here is what you need to think about to make the dream come true.

Getting Connected

You’ll need to connect to the internet. If your house is on the edge of the beach and the WiFi reaches the beach, then great. If not, you’ll need a 4G connection and be able to tether via your phone.

Artificial intelligence (AI) is widely talked about, but what is it and can it help improve your business telecoms)?

Let’s start by defining AI: Artificial intelligence is the simulation of human intelligence processes by machines, especially computer systems. These processes include learning (the acquisition of information and rules for using the information), reasoning (using rules to reach approximate or definite conclusions) and self-correction.

So, if AI is about getting machines to think like humans, there will many ways that AI can help your business, particularly with communications. Here are five key ways in which we believe AI can help your business.

Receiving a poor review online or having a competitor bad-mouth you is one thing and usually blows over fairly quickly with careful handling.

However, publishing lies in the press or media is something else altogether. And this includes Social Media. The legal term is defamation. Whether it be in writing (libel) or made verbally (slander), such comments that damage or are likely to damage another individual may give rise to court action.

Since 2013, when the new Defamation Act came into force, the threshold for bringing such an action has been raised. A potential claimant now has to prove that ‘serious harm’ has been caused and, in the case of a profit-making business, ‘serious financial loss’.

It’s most important that before going to court, that the claimant (you, if you are taking the person who has defamed you to court) should comply with the Civil Procedure Rules (the rules that are followed by the courts and parties in civil court proceedings). This means that s/he must follow ‘pre-action protocols for defamation’.

Let’s face it, history has a habit of looking unfavorably towards individuals and corporations who don’t hold up to the scrutiny of modern morality. This is evidenced by the demonization of all slave traders, colonizers and sexual exploiters of history, who often were simply doing what was ‘perfectly legal’ in their period of history.

It’s hard to say how history will look back at us now, but the signs are there. Our descendants will be astounded by our generation’s wasteful nature, horrified that we’re so destructive to our own planet, that we didn’t act on climate change, that we were so overtly misogynistic and racist. And with history moving faster than ever before, I believe we will look back with disbelief in as little as a decade.

So what can we do to make sure we are on the right side of history, especially when ethical moorings will change as soon as 2030?

Successful bands are the ones engaging with their fans. The result? They gain recognition and financial success.

The way that artists and musicians conduct their business and make money is changing dramatically in the music industry. Making valuable connections via word of mouth and keeping fans engaged is now of vital importance. And with more digital channels open to fans and musicians alike, the relationship is more direct and more measurable than ever before.

The power has begun to be handed back to fans and consumers, who are driving the conversations on social media and user generated content platforms such as TripAdvisor.

How can a business engage its fans as effectively as the top musicians and other showbiz personalities? Let’s find out.

From veganism to animal welfare and non-animal testing, more and more people are demanding transparency from businesses in terms of their practices and cruelty-free is having its moment.

So where do we start if we want our business to be cruelty free? The answer, as with most things, is of course with ourselves.

Even so called ‘ethical’ businesses such as ourselves are having to dig deeper into everything from supply chain to personal morals and motivations to stand up to the rigorous challenge that being truly cruelty free brings.

I had my ‘aha’ moment when I was a teenager. During a chance encounter with the Krishna movement I was introduced to the idea of compassionate eating for the first time and it made complete sense to me.

Let’s face it, raising funding for your business can be a tough process and there’s not a lot of advice to go on. How do you create an investment deck? What’s the most appropriate language and terminology? What are investors actually looking for?

There are some rules – thankfully – when it comes to developing an investor comms strategy. Based on my experience from involvement with over 30 fundraises, I’ve created a system that’s remarkably effective.

This article covers three essential topics for effective communication with investors and funders:
