Doing Business in the Digital Age: John Redwood joins IOD London seminar as guest speaker

We hope you can join us on 17 April 2012 from 10 till 4 at the Institute of Directors in London. Guest speaker is John Redwood, author of johnredwood.com, a hard hitting website providing contemporary comment on the credit crunch, the future of the Euro and much else, who will be speaking about “Doing Business in the Digital Age”.

Rollo Clifford, an internet entrepreneur and expert in change, has a lifetime’s experience in guiding companies, charities and groups through challenging times.  With his seminar “Take Advantage of Your Future” he shows participants how to use their best assets – their experience and their brains. The seminar empowers participants to overcome perceived or real obstacles, thus putting them in a better position to improve performance in the current economic climate.

“According to the Bank of England’s governor the path to economic recovery is slow and uncertain. You need your brain to be finely tuned to all opportunities and threats over the next few years”, explained Rollo Clifford. “My seminar is guaranteed to make you think – thus improving your business chances.”

“We are delighted that John Redwood has agreed to join us as a guest speaker over lunch”, added Rollo.  “John has been involved in turning around many companies in difficulties and is therefore in an excellent position to advise on how to do business in the digital age.”

“Rollo is right to mentor, warn and advise companies on the very different conditions we now face in business”, commented John Redwood.  “The rise of many new competitors in the emerging economies, the interaction of customers and commentators through Facebook and Twitter, the ever present threat or advantage of You Tube sensations, have made business more electric, more dangerous and potentially more rewarding.”

Join us if you would like to take advantage of your future!

Affirmations and visualization

In order to create meaningful and lasting change we need to change the recurrent thoughts – our ‘self-talk’ so that our ‘self-image’ and our brains automatically reflect the new truth.

You decide where to change. When you have done this, write your goals down. Write a brief definition of the way you want things to be, the way you wish to ‘see’ them. Remember the formula I xV=R, imagination times vividness equals reality on the subconscious level.  Now, fine tune them so that these brief statements have specific details. They must be positive, realistic and written in the first person, present tense. Remember, no comparisons -it’s you you’re interested in! Constantly develop a deeper spirit with each and keep it private!

Finally find somewhere quiet 10-15 min a day. This is your time, guard it jealously and effectively. Close your eyes and relax. When you are completely calm, read your affirmation yourself, picture images triggered by your words and feel the emotion stirred by these images. Take your time, delve deep into your subconscious. You will of course feel self-conscious to begin with and a bit ‘false’. So get used to it.
Remember Arnold Palmer? “And I find the more I practice the luckier I get…………”

Good luck, strong affirmations, persistence and determination = Results!
