    You might have heard the age old adage ‘hire slow, fire fast’ if you’ve worked in business, but is it warranted advice?

  • January 29 2020 Let’s Talk: Artificial Intelligence

    Artificial Intelligence (AI) has the power to completely transform the way we do things, personally and in business.

In October, we Read More…

    It’s the third working week of the New Year (at least for most of us) and now that everyone is settled back into the flow of work, it’s a good time for us to assess our goals and plans for 2020. A New Year brings new exciting vision, and the break over Christmas often provides Read More…

  • December 11 2019 Let’s talk: Business failure

    Entrepreneurs, business owners and business leaders aren’t always very forthcoming when it comes to their failures, especially with publications like Dynamic Business, however it’s inevitable that in founding and running a business you are going to make some mistakes.  You’ll even notice that our comments are a little shorter than usual this week, perhaps reflective Read More…

  • December 4 2019 Let’s talk: Co-workers

    Negative co-worker relationships can have detrimental impacts in and beyond the office if left unresolved.

  • November 27 2019 Let’s talk: Recruitment

    Hiring the wrong person, at any stage of business, can be extremely detrimental and costly in a number of ways that aren’t only financial. Of course there are the associated costs with spending time replacing that person, and the on-boarding and re-training of the newbie… and the more times you have to do this to Read More…

  • November 13 2019 Let’s talk: Diversity

    Not long ago we were discussing workplace culture on our Let’s Talk feature, and it brought to the surface how important it is to have a culture ‘add’ rather than just a culture ‘fit’, meaning that it’s important to seek alternative value from new employees – different in some way from the talent you already Read More…

  • November 6 2019 Let’s talk: Retaining talent

  • October 23 2019 Let’s talk: New tech

    It’s 2019 and technology is always the talk of the town.

  • October 16 2019 Let’s talk: Culture

    In the startup and small-to-medium business world, growing quickly is inevitable on the journey to becoming a successful company.
