Opensignal, Succession Planning, Private Chefs and Mental Toughness – What do they have in Common?

Is your download speed really as slow as you think?

Tonight on the PowerUp Show we spoke to Ian Fogg, VP Analysis at Opensignal. Many of us seem to notice a decrease in our download speed as the day progresses, and this is not our imagination as we are lead to believe.

Vanessa Meikle, Director at Healthcare Professionals Group wrote an amazing article on LinkedIn – Succession Planning – Investing for the Future. We discussed how succession planning should be embedded in the very culture of an organisation and the impact on productivity and profitability when it is not.

We then slowed down the pace at dinner time and spoke to Jason Ludwig from Passion Ate the Chef about creating a more personalised dinner experience guaranteed to increase sales and client engagement.

Mental toughness is the foundation of success and while many of us believe that we are mentally tough, it would appear that we are more resilient than tough.

And to answer the question “What do they have in common?” Customer experience and reaction are the keys to a successful organisation but without employee engagement, you are doomed to fail anyway.
