New Standards in Photojournalism (via Tim Gander’s Blog)


New Standards in Photojournalism Which would you like first; the good news, or the bad? I'll give you the good news first. This article is shorter than usual. The bad is, it's a bit of a rant. I'd love to be sitting here writing about the amazingly high standards in photojournalism as a result of newspapers fighting to retain readership in the face of competition from the web. Instead, I'm looking, open-mouthed, at the depressingly low standards to which local newspapers at leas … Read More

Tourism Finance: Making “Incredible India” story credible (via Pankaj Priyadarshi’s Blog)


The whole idea of TOURISM FINANCE seems so tempting. lets see how does the authorities implement & carry forward such an interesting initiative ….. 🙂

This is a Government initiative with stakes from IFCI, SBI, and various other banks in 1989 to help develop tourism infrastructure in the country. The main business of Tourism Finance is to fund projects related to tourism such as building hotels, parks, ropeways, restaurants, conventional halls, culture centers, safari parks, water parks and many more tourism related infrastructure, projects, and services. There is no segmentation, however, in income statement but as per some information, Hotel development forms the major part of Tourism Finance’s business.

Tourism industry is largest service industry in India. As an estimate, tourism industry accounts for almost 6-7 percent of India’s GDP ands employ a whopping 8% of Indian workforce. Tourism Industry will keep growing as Government seems to have been focusing on infrastructure in the current five year plan. We have heard quite often our PM and FM quoting the elusive $1 trillion to be spent in next 5 years on infrastructure.

Numbers, at the end of the day, cut through all the debates and discussions and present you with the real picture (though interpreting numbers requires another skill).

Let’s look at the numbers:

How to evaluate new brands? (Confessions of a Food Broker)

Confessions of a Food Broker… sounds quite odd & unique to name a blog. But this particular article will tell you what exactly one need to notice minute details  & how these details contribute to the purchase decision.

 

——————————-

As a food broker, I consistently but carefully add new product lines to my mix. Since my firm doesn’t have 10 reps at this point, I’ve been lucky to be extremely picky about the brands that I choose to represent. Many larger food broker firms have approximately 10 reps, and maintain 70-80 product lines. At that point, it’s challenging to take as much time to evaluate each new brand, and firms are under pressure to maintain a high number of brands.

As a small firm, my priorities are to choose a smaller number of extremely potent brands with high potential for success. This means that when I visit buyers, they get excited about everything that I represent. I say no to many potential clients, and take my time in adding new product lines. I spent more time on selection, so once I commit to something and begin selling it, I can be confident that it has a high chance of success.

You Call That a Handshake? from an Observer’s point of view


Benutzer:dapete and Benutzer:Ezrimerchant shak...

Body language is fascinating to me. I often rely more on a person’s body language than their words. One of my favourite past times is people watching. I can happily spend an hour or two sitting in a cafe or bar and watching people interact with each other. I wouldn’t call myself a voyeur, but I’m definitely an observer. One thing I notice most about people is the way in which they greet one another or more importantly meet.

Through out my career I’ve shaken a lot of hands. Maybe not as many as your average politician but a lot of hands. Some hands I liked and some I didn’t – but I shook them anyway. A handshake says a lot about a person, their personality and the way in which they view you and potentially the dynamics of the relationship they intend to form with you.

There a lot of variables to consider when you’re weighing up a handshake but are three major elements that I take note of when I first meet someone.
