Making the news great again: Have I Got Social Enterprise News For You

Have I Got Social Enterprise News For You.

Folks, we need to make the news great again. You know, we’ve had news. And that’s great. News is good. I like news. That’s right! Some people would say that I am the news. I don’t know, but that’s what people are telling me. But I am going to make the news great again. It’s going to be amazing.

Enjoy your weekend

Please don’t print this week’s enormous Have I Got Social Enterprise News For You

No printing

Happy Ryder Cup Friday. I’m late sending this out today and I’m fully aware that by now everyone will of course be tuned in and watching Europe’s finest golfers take on the USA USA USA, rather than checking their emails. For those of you still here, this week’s edition is a veritable cornucopia of social enterprise news. Someone unsubscribed from the newsletter recently because there was ‘too much news’ – good thing they aren’t around for this one.

Enjoy your weekend. I’ll be spending much of it complaining about golf spectators who shout ‘get in the hole’ every bleeding shot.
