My years in teaching allowed me to play a part in helping young people achieve their life purpose through education. As a teacher in the U.K.’s further education sector, I wore the dual hat of teacher and personal tutor everyday. The aspect of my job that kept me up at night during those years was never the teaching itself. Rather, it was being responsible for the holistic care of my students. Was I helping them to feel connected to the institution? Did I make them feel cared about? Was I doing everything I could to help them explore their passions and help them to be successful?

This is the daily work of advisors, coaches, and support staff. It is no secret that advisors can help students feel connected to their institution and help them navigate the path to success. In fact, an impactful strategy for engaging students in purposeful discussion … Read more

The Aviva (LSE: AV) share price has surged over the past 12 months. Over the past year, shares in the financial services giant have added nearly 34%, excluding dividends. Over the same time frame, the FTSE 100 has returned just 13%, excluding dividends.

But even after this impressive performance, I still think the stock appears undervalued. 

Aviva share price performance 

During the past year, Aviva has been overhauling its business model. It’s agreed to sell eight non-core divisions, raising almost £8bn. These sales have undone much of the work completed by the former management, which wanted to take the group into new markets around the world. 

Under the leadership of its new CEO Amanda Blanc, the company is focusing on its core British, Irish and Canadian markets.

Blanc has also promised more deals and investment in the years ahead. A core part of Aviva’s strategy has been to move … Read more

As the pandemic waxes and wanes we tentatively explore what business looks like in “the new normal”. For a start let’s just cut through the wishful thinking and just admit that the world that’s emerging as we head towards a post-pandemic future is just “new” which means it will be different and parts of it will feel to us, at times, abnormal.

Then, of course, we will adjust because that’s what we do and get on with life and business, both of which will feel decidedly different. Why? Because the pandemic is a global stressor that’s laid bare every weakness. We realized, for instance, that most of us used our homes mostly as caves to weather out nights and parts of the weekend. It’s a strategy that worked until we were obliged to stay in all day, day after day which is why DIY is surging.… Read more

LG Electronics Inc. made public its commitment to transition completely to renewable energy by 2050 as a key component of its sustainability strategy

LG Electronics Inc. made public its commitment to transition completely to renewable energy by 2050 as a key component of its sustainability strategy. The announcement in the just-released LG Electronics Sustainability Report comes on top of its earlier commitment to carbon neutrality through the Zero Carbon 2030 initiative in which the company has pledged to reduce carbon emissions in the production stage to 50 per cent of 2017 standards by 2030.

The transformation will be implemented region by region starting in North America where every office and manufacturing site will be powered by renewable energy within the year. LG manufacturing facilities outside of Korea are on target to convert 50 per cent of their electricity needs to renewable energy in the next four years.

Achieving this … Read more
