In the UK, the majority of companies fail to scale and sell because they don’t start with the exit in mind. Often, an entrepreneur comes up with a great idea and they develop their product(s) and expect organic growth. They see some revenue but only enough to tread water, so they remain a small business and make it their day job.

Roaming is one of the greatest technical achievements of the mobile phone sector. It requires the complex organization of mobile operators, phone manufacturers, masts, and regulatory bodies all working seamlessly. The service is 40 years old—mobile roaming started in Scandinavia in 1982—and for many of us, using our mobile phones when traveling overseas is something we expect.

Yet some customers traveling to the USA and some European countries have already experienced challenges: no phone calls or SMS, or even data with specific operators and certain devices (even in areas that were perfectly covered before). Many mobile operators are decommissioning their older networks (2G and 3G) in favor of more efficient 4G and 5G networks. These new networks are not yet fully supported for roaming by all operators.

We’re all aware of the boom in cycling over recent years, and the changes to the Highway Code at the beginning of 2022, meaning that not only is cycling an eco-friendly and pocket-friendly alternative to driving or taking public transport, but it is also becoming a safer option.

With people returning to work after the summer holidays, some will be returning to a cycling commute, while others may be making the switch to the saddle for the first time.

But… for most cycle commuters, the trade-off can be that they turn up at work looking less than prepared for the working day. Take your bag, for example. Panniers and rucksacks are traditionally functional but ugly and don’t really give the right impression as you head into the workplace, boardroom, or even to the bar after work.

From simple text messages to WhatsApp to a variety of in-app 1-2-1 messaging options, we use our smartphones for conversations in a wide range of ways. We tend to use these platforms for personal conversations with friends, and, until now, they haven’t been fully leveraged by marketers and brands. This is about to change.

So far, brands have been sending single messages – the ‘I am here’ message, but with true conversational commerce, brands ask you what you want, not tell you what they want.

In 2018, climate NGO Wrap found that an average of 2 million tonnes of waste was generated by the United Kingdom hospitality industry. Climate change policies and legislative changes, including the recent green claim code announcement, make now the perfect time to switch to sustainable products and services.

Traditional business still orientates around the head and gut. The heart is too often dismissed as airy-fairy, woo-woo, over-emotional, misguided, dangerous, or weak. But chasing profit, ahead of everything else, separates us from our true selves and from nature. However, when you take consistent business action inspired by your heart’s wisdom, you build structures that nourish and support you to thrive. Your business becomes a vehicle for creating win-win outcomes.

By Kat Byles, founder of The True Business School

In their book Built to Last (1992), Jim Collins and Jerry Porras showed that visionary companies guided by purpose are six times more profitable than purely profit-driven rivals. We are all born with a purpose. As unique as your fingerprint, it is held within your heart, your reason for being, your north star. With your purpose placed at the heart of your business, you benefit from the clarity of focus and direction. On the occasions self-doubt creeps in, purpose empowers you. Decisions become easier as you choose the path aligned with the fulfillment of your purpose.

Your purpose doesn’t arrive one day boom!’ fully formed, expressed, and embodied. There are recognizable stages to the growth and development of your purpose. These stages are not linear. You may experience more than one stage at a time, and some stages last longer than others. And when you become aware of the stage you are at, you have a map and can more easily participate in your purpose being fulfilled, with your business as the vehicle.

By Chantal Cooke, Panpathic Communications

When I decided to start Panpathic Communications 12 years ago, one of the important goals I had was that I would be able to work from anywhere.  My time as a journalist had given me the travel bug and I didn’t want my new business to prevent me from seeing and experiencing the world.
