The Internet is a big place and it is getting bigger – an expanding universe of content. It is vast and has tools, information and entertainment for any taste or fancy.

Lessons from Shakespeare

To read Shakespeare today with the extra wisdom you now have as a mature and seasoned business manager will add value in multiple areas. To pick up these classics again with a new eye of examination will be a worthy and fruitful effort.

 

As managers, what can we learn?
