[John French] My first training assignment for 2014 was to train a new marketing manager in sales skills and strategy.

There is something very significant about the beginning of a new year that causes us to reflect and set goals for future self-development.

Do you fear public speaking more than death?

[John French] It was American comedian Jerry Seinfeld who observed: "According to most studies, people's number one fear is public speaking. Number two is death. Death is number two. Does that seem right? That means to the average person, if you have to go to a funeral, you're better off in the casket than doing the eulogy."

The missing piece in our education system

[Cliff Musamba] I have listened to Dr Martin Luther King's 'I have a dream speech' many a time.

[Mike le Plastrier] We all know the complaints regarding skills shortages and the outsourcing of jobs offshore, but this doesn't have to be so. South Africa may not be overpopulated by rocket scientists (although we do have some), but we've certainly got human resources equal to the task of handling many skilled jobs in the mining and manufacturing industries.

Parents, kids and the big question of need for private tuitions

[Will Smith] Schools have curriculums which need to be followed with a discipline. The subjects, sports, music and other activities are part of it so that students get to know their interest in a particular field or area better. Somewhere in the whole process, the real essence of understanding the motto of education gets dimmed unintentionally.
