Free gym membership up for grabs 11th September 2012 10:37 AM

Looks good

The new Microsoft - logo. 28th August 2012 11:02 AM
People it is a rebrand. Not a redesign.

It didn't need to be made all that different because of the weight the existing brand carries. Starbucks' recent rebrand was very similar.

Less is more
This is brilliant!

But yep, back to KW's
Stem Cell Storage? 4th July 2012 11:11 AM
I was told of a practice call 'stem cell storage' by a GP friend of mine. From what I understand they take and store the umbilical cord at birth and can use it for all kinds of future surgery practice.

Also apparently a number of fellow GP's have already done it. I registered for a free pack to be sent (here - Request a Welcome Pack | Cells4Life)

Has anyone else done it or have any experience of it? I still don't quite understand the concept...

Distance learning could be a viable option - especially if he does a more vocational course, what is he looking to study?

A business course of some description, he's not 100% sure what area to focus in quite yet.

Since last logging in I requested a pack to be sent and it arrived this morning. Seems rather flexible. Best of all, no set 'term time'. A course can just begin any time of the year... He'll love this I'm sure!!
I think this is going to a growing issue that young people will be facing so thanks for raising it!!

I'm just glad I got mine whilst I could...
Interesting point, lucky for me it's going to be a while before I have to worry about it, but I wonder what are the alternatives?

Could it be Private Tuition? by any chance? Tell me that wasn't a self promo John

HA no. I should change that actually.

He's a pretty good student, but I don't know whether 'all paid' scholarships are a possibility. What he wants (what he says anyway...) is the paperwork, not necessarily the whole 'university lifestyle'.

I was looking long distance learning courses such as this: HNC in Business Distance Learning Online Course

Similar to OU? Can save plenty of
UK University Tuition Fee Concerns 28th May 2012 12:56 PM
My son is currently studying his AS levels and will soon be choosing his university placements.

We're by no means well for money and with the recent increases in tuition fee's here in the UK, I am genuinely considering his options as to whether it is viable for him to still go to university or not.

Are others feeling the same? What are the alternatives, if any?

Is Facebook a Useful tool 20th February 2012 2:08 PM
It can be, but not always.

You demographic might not be a viable market to be worth the endeavours Facebook marketing requires.
With a growing sales team, it looks more and more likely that our business will seriously need to be looking at a cloud based system.

I'v come across these guys CRM Cloud Software | Microsoft CRM Office 365 Cloud Solutions who offer a free 30-day trial. Would this be long enough to really get an idea of whether the investment is worthwhile?

Who else has moved to cloud systems? Yay or nay?
