Recent years have witnessed a heated debate on the future of higher education, with online forms of education receiving more and more supporters among students, faculty and administration. As of 2012, 89% of public schools and 60% of private schools were offering online courses. At the same time, we saw the emergence of free online courses by nearly all major US colleges and universities, as well as the growing popularity of course aggregators, with Coursera being the most popular so far. In other words, online forms of education are on the rise and there are many legitimate reasons for that...

Everyone working in the area of branding and marketing knows organizing events is a great way to give your lead generation a kick. It also goes without saying that branding giveaways with the logo of your company is tested and often inexpensive classic. It allows room for creativity, even new product ideas. But in an effort to impress with originality, companies often go over the top. Kitchen entrees by a large toothpaste company, yogurt by a world-famous magazine, the list is long, but I cannot help but imagine that all these quirky products came up as a result of branding experts...

With the advance of social media and mobile technologies, the world of recruitment is changing faster than ever. It seems like it should be easier than ever to find the right candidate, and yet employers are often displeased with the fit they get. I am not going to bore you with statistics, but suffice is to say close to two-thirds of employers in the U.S. report losses due to bad hires. And it does not end there. A bad match is not only costly, but can have a negative effect on employee morale, lower productivity and even lead to legal issues. Regardless...

Whatever you do for a living, chances are you are now using at least a few tech gadgets to help you along the way. I guess it is safe to say that their number is growing each year and you find it harder and harder to keep them all in sync. You could just bring them all with you. That is, if you don’t mind kids stopping you on the street to ask for an autograph from Inspector Gadget. Fortunately, there are now a lot of available tools for data synchronization. In fact, they are getting so many that it can...

Can a small Bavarian town with a population of a little more than 20 000 people be the birthplace of two large world-famous sports brands? Both of them owned by two brothers who get into a fight, resulting in a bitter rivalry that lasts long after their deaths? The answer to both questions is “yes”. Let’s go back to 1922 in the town of Herzogenaurach (don’t bother, you can’t pronounce that) and follow the story of the Adidas brand. Yuen-Ping aka YP / Foter / CC BY-NC-SA The Family Business Success stories rarely get any more inspirational (albeit punctuated by controversies) than that. In...

Ever wondered what makes thousands of people wait in line for hours before stores open, so they can get the latest iPhone first? Why every major tech site provides a live update of the conference when the new iPhone is unveiled? Or why there is a dating app, designed especially to match Apple fans? If you allow me to put it simply, the answer lies in the fact that the iPhone has turned into more of a cultural icon and a fashion accessory than a tech gadget. And now everybody wants in on that popularity. Literally thousands of companies are...

Let’s be straight – we live in an uncertain world. It’s enough to turn on the TV or browse the Internet for just 20 minutes to see what I mean. But before you stop reading, I want to make clear that my point here is far from going into detail about the various ways in which one can get afflicted and leave you morose for a week (in the least). Rather, I mean to argue for a little safety and precaution, especially when they don’t set you back financially or interfere with your daily routine and comfort too much. Such...
