Forgive my use of the exclamation mark in the headline. But our cavalier approach to email communications has got to stop. Before you hit send, think about this, we all receive on average 140 emails every day. That’s a lot. But it’s also nothing. I know people that receive 300 emails upward in a day and their inbox is perpetually at over 1000 emails.

Ethics or morals in business are a major topic, and running a business with integrity when so many companies don’t, can give your organisation a competitive advantage.

That’s because many of your prospective customers both government and private entities employ sustainable and ethical business practices. They don’t want to do business with you if you’re not like-minded.

What secrets do I spill? What ugly deeds do I reveal? Just a few, and somehow I bring the story back to you. Dive in.

You might think my headline is a tad dramatic for B2B IT and the words above have no place in business communications. But dig deep and you’ll see in every story there is a villain and a hero; for example, the problem and the solution. Despair and joy are there too: the emotions someone experiences when facing and then overcoming problems. Madness can lurk in the shad...
