Data Protection: Using Employee Photos and Personal Details Online and in Marketing Materials

We increasingly see photographs and personal information about directors and employees both on websites and in marketing materials. This could also include company Facebook pages and other social networking sites.

I'm back! I've missed you...

Stand out! WOW them! Be Brilliant!

I recently read a book by Michael Heppell entitled 5 Star Service.  I've met many people who would do themselves a big favour if they read it too.  It's slightly gushy, but the message is strong...    GO THE EXTRA MILE!



Don't just deliver what you said you would deliver; exceed expectations. Create the WOW…
