When we saw the cheeky message above, left on our ‘Birthday wishes’ page this week, we couldn’t help but laugh. Someone (Jacqui Morrison, Nissan) had remembered Rod’s underpants.

It’s World Book Day in the UK (United Kingdom) where I live, and in true cross cultural style, the rest of the World will be celebrating on April 23rd. This apparently has something to do with April 23 being St George’s Day – our patron saint. We don’t generally make much of a fuss over […]
It’s impossible to know what’s going on everywhere, and March is a particularly confusing – and culturally delightful – month if you celebrate according to any religious calendar, or if you work with someone who does. Easter, for example, is very moveable, according to Church and place. This is confusing enough for people who work […]

Each month we try and include the dates that are going to most affect the global workplace. February 14 Chinese New Year, having fallen in late January, will continue being celebrated in the early part of the month. The Chinese Lantern Festival falls on February 14th, symbolically, if not officially, marking the end of the […]
Each Monday we try to post a review of an article or paper so that you don’t have to. Today is no exception, and this week’s offering is by one of our own consultants, Tim Mitchell, in European CEO, “The Top Five Leadership Skills”. Mitchell argues that the top five skills necessary to lead in […]
At our recent global team meeting, John Bland, Director for Europe, asked us to recommend three good books we’d read in 2013. He helpfully collated the responses, which had considerable cross over, and we thought we’d share the business titles here.
