Unlucky for some: Have I Got Social Enterprise News For You

Share Button

It’s Friday 13th, and unluckily for you here I am popping up in your inbox again. Luckily for you, there is an enormous amount of social enterprise news to get your teeth into. The people who complain that this is too long are not going to be happy this week.

Enjoy your weekend – I’m off to see Blade Runner later.

Uh-oh, some of the letters have fallen off my subject line. Cough. Can you hear me? Cough. Someone give me a throat sweet. What’s this? A P45. How did this chap get in here? Cough. Nothing has changed! Nothing has changed! This introduction really isn’t going very well. I suppose we’d better just crack on with the news…

Today is Ask A Stupid Question Day¬†(click the link, I’m not making it up). “What’s that?”, I hear you ask. (I will not pass judgement on whether that is a stupid question or not). Well, it’s a day designed to encourage pupils to ask more questions in the classroom and not be afraid of looking stupid. So, take your seats because class is in session…

Bugged out: Have I Got Social Enterprise News For You

Share Button

I’ve been afflicted this week by a stomach bug. Trying to think of a cause for the problem I have arrived at the conclusion that my seventeen month son is some sort of biological warhead, sent here to destroy me. He goes to nursery, picks up the latest illness doing the rounds and then brings it home and transmits it to me. I seem to have the immune system of a toddler – either that or poor hygiene. My wife gets off scot-free each time as well, which certainly points towards a wider conspiracy.

Don’t worry, though. I’ve been keeping an eye on everything that’s been going on across the social enterprise world from my sickbed. And what a bumper week it’s been.

Enjoy the news…

Not pleasing all the people all the time: Have I Got Social Enterprise News For You

Share Button

Occasionally I’m asked to speak on one of the courses that we run at SSE. It’s quite an honour, when you think of the people who have previously spoken: Michael Young, Jon Snow, Alastair Wilson – all the greats. Anyway, what’s the main piece of advice I give people? Do your research and ask for customer feedback.

This changes now. It’s nonsense. Apologies if you’ve listened to me pronounce¬†this ‘advice’ – you should get a refund. Why? In last week’s newsletter I asked for feedback on the new design, and now I’m a confused mess. “It looks much better without the numbers”, “I miss the numbers”, “Love the cartoon you”, “The cartoon makes me want to punch you in the face”. So my new advice: don’t do feedback, don’t listen to anyone, and most importantly of all, don’t have a punchable face.

Enjoy this week’s news…
