Corporate Governance: The need for critical thinking on Boards

criticalthinking-ceomentoring-business-growth

I highly recommend reading a story titled ‘It is time to reform the make-up of corporate boards’ run by the Financial Times on January 3rd 2018. Over and above the structural changes that need to be made, it states the need for Board members to change their stance from one of justification of the status quo to one of hard-questioning how business is done. This is the criticial thinking that CEO Mentoring has been claiming of BoD for a long time.

Top 10 Tips for reducing discounts – Beat #BlackFriday!

blackfriday-payment-chip-pin-creditcard-safe

Black Friday started in the USA and now it has become normal among most UK retailers. When you have more items on sale rails than on the rest of the floor, there are a number of things you can do, however, rolling your eyes and blaming the increasingly unpredictable British weather shouldn’t be one of them.
