By Michael Haynes | February 15, 2018

Another School Shooting Rocks the United States in Florida Students Morgan Williams and Ivanna Paitan hid together behind their teacher’s desk as the gunman shot multiple rounds into their classroom. Just a few feet away from where they were hiding, five of their friends were shot. This is their account. “In total, five people in my class were shot,” recalled a visibly shaking Williams. “It sounded like fireworks, and it smelled like fireworks.” Paitan, in a strong a steady voice told reporters, “In one of the videos that was from my class that was on the news…that’s what happened to me.” When asked what she remembered just before the shooting started,…

Damien Trevatt – Founder of Ungagged “The Un-Conference”

By Michael Haynes | February 7, 2018

Damien Trevatt – The Man Behind Ungagged “Take risks, make mistakes, learn from both, but most importantly, don’t look back, just keep going.” – Damien Trevatt In an age with a never-ending supply of advice givers, Trevatt walked the walk as he took a huge risk in the Fall of 2014, creating what was then labeled, “The Un-Conference.” Trevatt saw a problem in the digital marketing space. Current conferences were stagnant. Speakers shared very little real information as the conferences were often recorded or live streamed. Presentations became generic and the “nuggets of information” to help online business owners and consultants were few and far between. He foresaw a conference…

Lord Michael Bates Resigns For Being Late

By Michael Haynes | February 1, 2018

When Good Manners Trumps a Political Office Often, when you arrive late for work an apology is all that is expected. However, for a British Lord, his lateness came with an apology as well as his resignation. In less than a minute, Lord Bates apologized, and then offered his resignation, and promptly left the House of Lords. “I want to offer my sincere apologies to Baroness Lister for my discourtesy in not being in my place to answer her question on a very important matter at the beginning of questions,” Bates said as he stood amongst his peers. “During the five years in which it’s been my privilege to answer…

Lee Kuan Yew – Leadership Transformed Singapore

By Michael Haynes | January 29, 2018

Lee Kuan Yew – “The Impossible Can Happen!” Lee Kuan Yew was the first and longest-serving Prime Minister of Singapore. It was his leadership that transformed Singapore from a third world country into a thriving metropolitan city in just three decades. In a press conference, referring to the airline pilot strike of  Singapore Air, he said, “I have spent a lifetime building this (referring to the city of Singapore), and as long as I am in charge, no one is going to knock it down.” He was the leader Singapore needed, and it took him a mere 65 minutes to end the strike. A Short Biography of Lee Kuan Yew…

Tim Ash: Leader in Improving Your Landing Page Optimization

By Michael Haynes | January 22, 2018

In the fall of 2017, Tim Ash , CEO of Site Tuners , was the keynote speaker for the digital marketing conference  Ungagged . Typically, keynotes at conferences like this are described as stand-offish, snooty, and unapproachable. Those keynote speakers who claim that they are “approachable” will excuse themselves from conversations with conference attendees as if they are a surgeon rushing to the OR. And then there is Tim Ash. We observed for well over an hour Ash spent time with two attendees discussing everything from their respective online businesses, politics, and how to improve human relations. It was apparent Ash is well read, astute, and genuine. His respect toward the female attendees was also observed,…

Body and soul

March 13, 2007

Self-proclaimed renegade Dame Anita Roddick’s Body Shop was one of the pioneers of corporate social responsibility. Anita Roddick sees herself as an activist and renegade first and foremost, rather than a businesswoman. While today, her mainstay is indeed a mix of activism and philanthropy, her business credentials are pretty impeccable. She brought The Body Shop from one store sandwiched between two undertakers in Brighton (the company name raised a few eyebrows at the time – so no change there then) to a chain of more than 2,000 worldwide and then sold it in 2005 for in excess of £650m sterling. Throughout her career, Roddick has campaigned tirelessly on ethical issues…
