Steer Clear of the Overload

Is information overload distracting us from actually meeting the objectives we set out to achieve? 
More and more people are finding that the abundance of information available to us today is a large contributor to our stress levels. 

Many of us tend to get bogged down by large amounts of information or even just simply distracted by its enormity. 

As a result we aren’t getting those things, which we set out to achieve, done and hence contribute to our stress levels. 

To gain focus and momentum again can be as easy as having clear goals set out before you start.  To put it simply, it’s just like checking the street map when travelling through an unknown area, it keeps us from going the wrong way or from taking the longer route. 
Having our goal in mind before we start saves us time stressing about information that doesn’t help us achieve our end result. 

Anyway, I better get back to my objectives now, I guess…..and keep this informative and short for you.



Organisations and Social Responsibility - Camp Quality

Over the years we’ve changed our minds about how an organisation should treat it’s people and how far it’s responsibility goes to caring for employees. 
We’ve fortunately discovered that to get the best from our people we need to look after them and their personal needs. 

At times we get a shock when we remember they are a person first and foremost before they are an employee.  This philosophy or concept is extending constantly to include the wider community and to the environment. 

Happening People are conscious of how important it is to ‘give something back’ to the wider community. 
For this reason we have decided that Camp Quality, (an organisation that provides assistance to children with cancer and their families), will receive 1% of our net profits for this financial year.  Every bit will help.


Personally Speaking

By now you may have spoken with Imogen Blay our new Client Services Consultant.  Imogen has a background in education and training, telecommunications and customer service.  Imogen will primarily manage our Professional Development Products and the design of our experiential based learning programs.

I am excited to welcome another injection of talent to our company to enhance the work we do to make a real difference with organisations and individuals.

Take care,

Kind regards,
Sam Day
