Dear Sir/ Madam, Do you know what the potential cost of Auto-Enrolment will be to your business and could you be getting a better return on your investment in employee benefits?
Read for fun and raise a ton for RNIB and your school
When Alice ventured down the rabbit hole into Wonderland, she discovered a world full of imagination and delight. Read for RNIB Day wants to inspire children in a similar way by encouraging them to read and share their love of books through fun events.
Reading can bring so much joy, yet blind and partially sighted children are missing out on this crucial part of childhood. Your school can help to open up the world of Wonderland and beyond to children affected by sight loss. Only seven per cent of books published are available in formats that people who are blind or partially sighted can read. Last year, RNIB provided nearly 8,000 accessible books to enable blind and partially sighted children to share the freedom that reading brings. With your help, we could provide so many more.

You’re likely to continue to hear more about this in the media over the coming months but do you have a strategy in place to ensure you meet all your duties as an employer?

Content marketing provides an alternative to traditional advertising by offering branded content native to a user’s browsing experience. Intertwining interesting content with a brand’s identity means users are engaged with and entertained by the brand, giving them a positive experience from the brand in a way not achievable through other forms of marketing.

We create quality, well-written and, most importantly, entertaining content you’d be proud to have on your site or blog.
Keyword: Sell designer clothes Should I Sell or Swap My Used Clothes? Do you hate money? Do you like exchanging formerly loved items for old tat? Do you want to lose your friends? Then swapping clothes is for you! Unless you're friends with Carrie Bradshaw, one of the Gossip Girls, or another person with an unrealistically large and well-stocked wardrobe – I'd strongly suggest selling your clothes rather than swapping them. If you want to embroil yourself in a world of drama – by all means , try swapping. Don't say I didn't warn you. If you want to be coerced into trading your lovely designer angora jumper for a pair of mustard and puce polka-dot tights with a ladder in them, go for it. Selling your clothes beats swapping every time, and here's why: 1. Cash. Cold hard cash. I'm not going to pretend you'll get mega-bucks for your old clothes, but anything is better than nothing. If you sell designer clothes in particular, you can bring a few quid in. You can auction them off, or if that's too much of a pain, sites like ***** let you indicate the brand of your clothes and pay accordingly. Even older clothes not in great condition can be bagged up, picked up from your house, and exchanged for cash. 2. Not getting lumbered with stuff no-one wants. If you swap your clothes, your only option is to exchange your garments for those of your friends. Which is great if your friends are amazingly stylish, filthy rich and exactly the same size as you. But if you live in the real world, you're much more likely to be swapping for a party dress covered in kebab grease. That's 2 sizes too small. That everyone's seen being worn by your friend in countless facebook pics. 3. Laziness or, as I like to call it, being economical with effort. Selling your clothes online is so easy, you barely have to leave the sofa, let alone organise a swap-meet with your friends. The easiest possible way is to use one of the cash for clothes sites – my recommendation is the site above. A few drop-down boxes is all they need to determine how much your clothes are worth. They'll pick them up from your house and they can even transfer the money directly into your bank account. Which you can then spend on more clothes, online. There should be no doubt in your mind now. Raid the back of the wardrobe, check the attic, grab those clothes that have been draped over the treadmill for the last 6 months – and sell them!

These days, when journalists have to trawl newswires and inboxes filled with content just above spam - well-written, quality content is far more likely to be published.

Press release copy: Beautiful Bottoms Poppy Sexton-Wainwright and Lauren Skerrit, Marketing and Management graduates 2009, have created a new line of sheer silk underwear that has caught the attention of high street retailer Fenwick. During their time at University both Poppy and Lauren came up with the idea for Beautiful Bottoms through a module for their Marketing and Management degree. The girls have successfully managed to produce their underwear collections in both Delhi and Olympia. Lauren commented: ‘It started off as theory but then we bought the domain name and went for it’. Poppy explained what they have gained from their venture so far: ‘We are designing, marketing, selling and budgeting so we’re learning a lot about business, affordability is our selling point. As students we couldn’t find anything affordable and beautiful.’ The duo come from creative and entrepreneurial backgrounds with Lauren’s mother an interior designer and hotel owner, and Poppy’s father having set up an antiques shop on Portobello Road. They are now both spreading their creative wings and have seen the expansion of their London based lingerie company. The success of the company has drawn the attention of a shop in St Barths as well as the popular high street store Fenwick, who have both proceeded to buy Lauren and Poppy’s Spring/Summer 2011 collection, which includes silk underwear and gowns. The pair are looking to the future, with the potential growth of their company at the forefront of their minds, they will be bringing out new brands for their Autumn/Winter collection, as well as breaking into the swimwear market by 2013.
A creative approach to job hunting has landed graduate Kyle Clarke a dream job in London. After graduating with a business management degree last summer he decided to promote his skills on the internet to encourage potential employers to come to him. He set up his own website, employkyle.com, to advertise himself to companies across the globe. By the time Kyle (pictured) reached the end of the project in October, he had 15 different job offers on the table ranging from multi-national corporations to individual entrepreneurs. He has now taken up a role as digital marketing manager for the Knowledge Labs, a not-just-for-profit product development group based in London and New York. “I decided I needed to come up with something that really made me stand out and so the idea to auction myself online grew,” he said. “Unlike a lot of graduates, I admitted that I wasn’t 100 per cent sure what career I would like to move into, but by creating the website and generating interest from potential employers I hoped to find the perfect role for me. The final decision was much harder than I thought it would be.” The site, which set out information about Kyle’s CV, personality and ideas, had over 4,000 visitors from 80 countries. The first task Kyle has been given is to lead an original marketing campaign, starting with “thinkpal”, the company’s new iPhone app. Tristan Alltimes, alumni relations manager of the University’s Business School, said: “We are incredibly impressed by Kyle’s innovative approach to tackling the job market. “It isn’t an easy time for graduates looking for employment but it just goes to show that with the right mindset, enthusiasm and entrepreneurialism, graduates can make a big impression on the business world.” Kyle was one of three Newcastle University Business School students to represent the UK in the final of the 2010 L’Oreal International Brand Manager competition in June.
