Our clients in the news: November 2016
November 2016 will be remembered as the month Donald Trump became President-elect of the USA. #Trump was among the 10 most used Twitter hashtags of the year, and it’s estimated that he received at least $3 billion worth of media coverage during his campaign. It’s safe to say the election dominated the headlines… but not all of them.
Here’s what our clients have been up to:
Writing for the Huffington Post, Study Group’s James Pitman took Theresa May to task, stating that international students are being unjustly targeted in the UK government’s current crackdown on immigration. In the piece, he calls for international students to be decoupled from the issue of migration as they make a valuable contribution to the country.
Meanwhile, he also provided some comment for the Financial Times that was included in its article on the accuracy of UK immigration figures.
Bullhorn senior vice president of international sales, Mike Restivo, wrote for Tech City News on how tech start-ups can be truly disruptive or ‘market challengers’. In the article, he highlights three areas companies have to focus on to achieve this.
Meanwhile, Deb Hordon, senior vice president of Leadership Strategy for Bullhorn, wrote an article for theCsuite.co.uk giving advice to leaders on how to avoid the unsuccessful behaviours of overcompensating and undercompensating.
Experts on the small business sector, Xero wrote various articles last month on topics of importance to SMEs.
On Bizcommunity, Gary Turner, Xero MD EMEA, spoke about the benefits of a business staying small, explaining why some small business owners choose to operate lifestyle businesses, rather than always chasing growth.
Meanwhile, Colin Timmis, Xero’s SA Head of Accounting, offered insight to IT News Africa on the impact artificial intelligence (AI) will have on accounting. In the article, he notes that AI and enhanced levels of automation will lower the cost of running businesses. But rather than it putting accountants out of business, it will cement the position of accounting at the strategic heart of businesses.
