Hi Andrea, I tend to agree with Dr Louise, and in addition to setting up great processes and rewarding your staff for doing their job well, here are a few more ideas to help cultivate a happy, productive workplace.Are your employees over worked or...
I operate as a sole trader and for now that suits me. I find it very irritating when the politicians go on TV talking up how much they are helping "small business" when in fact, they are helping small companies. Many of the so called benefits and...

Networking would be great, perhaps: open networking, guest speaker, open networking. Debates might be interesting - serious or comedic? By way of online or virtual events, seminars can be fun. I'd be keen to see some interviews with members too.
I find BitCoin and other crypto currencies so interesting. From a legal view point I have no idea how to classify them - are they currency? goods? something else? Are they subject to GST? Income tax? FBT (as Katherine mentioned above, in some...
I work with lawyers who are - in my experience - inherently conservative and risk averse, so I've not seen the uptick yet; in fact a friend of mine's position was made redundant just last week. Historically the legal industry is last in and last out...
