"Men Lie, Women Lie, Numbers Don't" - Advice for Sales Managers from Jay-Z

As the end of the month is fast approaching a Sales Manager should be busy asking all of the relevant top level forecasting and activity questions of their team:

'Men Lie, Women Lie, Numbers Don't!!' - Advice for Sales Managers from Jay-Z

• How much of your target is actually secured at this point? 

• Can you find the remainder of your target within the month? 

• Have you the number of activities in the pipeline required to guarantee your target? 

• Will you hit your target if only the smallest deals come in? 

Every Sales Manager should have belief in their team. However, in the answers to the above questions, and to establish as close a 'reality' as possible can come challenges. Challenges in relation to questions such as - is the PO coming in on time? will I get the booking form signed in time?, with the client be back from holidays to confirm the sale on time? and so on.

3 Ways Technology is Making Life Easier in Cities Around the World

Condé Nast recently published its list of the World's 'Smartest' Cities, and as more urban areas begin to embrace technology such as our own CityNext initiative, it becomes increasingly important for businesses to understand how "Smart Cities" work. More than half the world's population lives in urban areas for the first time in history, and by 2050 more than 70 percent of the population is expected to live in these areas, and smart technology helps make those areas safer, smarter, healthier, and modern.

Windows 9 Launch for September 30 event?

Windows 9 Launch?

Microsoft will host a press event on September 30th where the company is expected to unveil what could possibly be the last major overhaul of its flagship Windows operating system, Windows 9. Microsoft sent out the invitations to the 30 September event, all but confirming that the next version of Windows is imminent. 

Industry experts predict this will be the first chance for developers and users to get a preview of the next version of Windows, which due for release next spring. Until now (September), Microsoft has not mentioned Windows 9 by name but the image to the right was posted by the firm's Chinese division on Weibo saying "Microsoft’s latest OS Windows 9 is coming soon, do you think the start menu at the left bottom will make a come back?". 

cnbeta windows 9

It was quickly removed but cnBeta managed to grab it. 

Experts expect Windows 9 to launch in PCs, laptops, tablets and phones that you can buy in April 2015 but Microsoft is likely to show it off - to some extent - on 30 September as it has now sent out invites to an event where it will outline 'what's next for Windows and the enterprise'. 

Microsoft will reportedly show off a 'Windows Technical Preview'. A revamped Start menu - one that hews more closely to the one in Windows 7 - a de-emphasis of the touch-first "Modern," née "Metro," mode and UI (user interface), and the ability to run Modern apps in Windows on the classic desktop have been bandied as Windows 9's most obvious changes.
