Women in Engineering, International Leadership Conference

Anyone who knows me, knows that leaving the City on any given weekday is NOT something I’m exactly enthusiastic about. That commute, be it by car or Caltrain, leaves a lot to be desired these days. So to make the trek down on the Peninsula to attend a seemingly off-demographic conference being put on by an engineering acronym you’ve never heard of … may seem a little odd [#fairenough]. In this case though it was most certainly warranted, and I hope next year in its 5th, the Women in Engineering, International Leadership Conference (#WIELEAD) invites me to return.

Marketing Innovation: Attribute it to the Web

‘Marketing’ and ‘Innovation’: two words that have traditionally been cloaked in vagueness, if not uncertainty. Why? Because they get abused by association and diluted in practice. Inconsistent results, substance, and meaning tend to have that effect. But when they click … [wo]man-o-[wo]man, that’s the stuff of business legend. And when the combined term ‘Marketing Innovation’ is firing on all cylinders, well, that’s something to write home about (or on the homepage at any rate). It would appear this is such a time, for are ABM and predictive marketing ever hitting their stride!

For purposes here, a simple definition: [...]

How to Start a Home Staging Business in 5 Easy Steps

Home stagers prepare homes for sale and their value to their clients is in improving the appearance of a home so that it sells more quickly. Home staging is far more work than cleaning a home and putting flowers on the kitchen counter, though those are commonly done by home stagers. Here are the five steps necessary to become a home stager.

Pick a Company Name

Your company name can be your name or a business name. Select a business name that isn’t used by anyone else in your jurisdiction and that clearly indicates what you do.

PROFESSIONALLY ETHICAL

There are plenty of accelerators around almost in every business sector you can think of. However, discovering the one for charities was quite a surprise for me. But it makes perfect sense – while technological innovation and new disruptive business models are changing the way we make money, they can also change the way we give, and the way we engage with the third sector. The Rainmaker Foundation is a community with a mission to innovate the charity sector by bringing the same resources and tools available to commercial organisations to not-for-profits. The community of Rainmakers come from a variety of backgrounds, and bring their experience, talent and connections to the [...]

Is an all-in-one SOCIAL MONEY TRANSFERRING APP the future?

2016 demonstrated the continued maturity and growth of the mobile app market. The mobile money transferring apps maintained strong momentum last year as publishers continued to develop apps that transform how we interact with the world and each other. Moneymailme is surely one of them.

“These are the facts: using mobile money is, on average, more than 50% cheaper than using global money transfer operators. Moreover, mobile money facilitates competition and drives down the price of remittance services.”, explains Mihai Ivascu, Moneymailme Founder and CEO.

“Over 240 million. That’s how many international migrants currently there are, according to figures from the UN. When [...]

DIVERSITY IN FINTECH

Whenever I hear that women “can’t have it all” I always try to think of a good example why it’s not true… When I met Georgia Hanias I had the impression I found one. The Head of Global Communications for Innovate Finance, she is something that a modern woman aspires to be – successful, with a strong sense of mission and purpose, with a good family. But as I found out it wasn’t that easy for her. We had a cup of coffee with the famous L39 view, and touched upon many issues about fintech, Brexit and diversity. Here are a few things I would like to quote Georgia on…

Brexit and UK Fintech

“We polled our members after the referendum and it became clear that overwhelmingly [...]
