Interview with Dominic Swords, Co-Chair of Judges (National Business Awards in partnership with Orange) Economist, Henley Business School and Mike Tomlinson, Small Business Marketing Director, Orange. British businesses are running record numbers of brainstorms to boost profits and cut costs, according to a new Orange-commissioned report by Henley Business School. Eight out of ten British businesses are bringing their staff together at least once a month to generate killer ideas in a bid to supercharge their business. While some firms are even running daily brainstorms to leapfrog the competition. However, half of these ideas aren’t practical and can’t be implemented.
Finally Mark and Ian discuss this weeks hack on LinkedIn. Ian gives feedback published on the LinkedIn website on the Hack attack, what users should do to protect themselves, and on the LinkedIn Phishing scams that are happening as a result.
