Ever heard ‘Lights…Camera…Action’! And what followed was Zoom in - Zoom out; camera, trolly, tilt up – tilt down; as an actor, I would fancy that, but these are the times in which you don’t have to be an actor to be catching to such lingo.  Welcome to the world of webinars where every each one of you plays a role and most importantly have the privileged to be on air.  Webinars are a grea...

Space remains the final frontier and before I further on the voyages of the Starship Enterprise, I’ll admit that I have been off lately on the course update front but that doesn’t mean not working hard!  We’ve been busy updating Soft Skills course’s PowerPoint deck, giving them a more modern look and feel while working on the other fronts.  And back to the voyages, ‘Star Trek’ ...

So FaceBook is to stay but never mind that.  As a LinkedIn netizen, I have often come across the phrase ‘this is not Facebook’ for some probable out of the context posts’.  As much as we value and appreciate content and encourage the added value, don’t we have the right to voice and stop the anti-content that is being posted.  So here is my question for today: why is there a no-stand aga...

Nay for Facebook!  I, for one, never have had the chance to sign up Facebook; although wanting to be on once but never have had the time to do so; and now it don’t make any sense to sign up with face book or any other newer social site for that matter given the explosion of these social icons reminiscent to the proliferation of a product!  Strategically being LinkedIn, I could only go as...

When I first went to the grad school, internship back then was in fashion and during which one was also tasked to protect his or her own reputation.   But, as an everyday intern at the prestigious PaineWebber’s headquarters in the Windy City, the first and foremost that I could see coming my way was a crisis soon to engulf me.  While the word crisis’ sends shivers to many and could lead ...
