‘Buy for Uni’ mortgage turns students into landlords

Anyone over 18 who is in higher education can apply for the deal, as long as they have backing from familyAfter three or four years of study, many students will look with resignation at bank statements showing them thousands of pounds in debt. Raising enough for a deposit on a first property becomes a a distant thought as they tackle paying off their loans. Unless, that is, they are homeowners already.Lenders are now looking at students as not just customers for university loans, but also for early mortgages – effectively turning them into landlords.

My workout: Wings Chan, 24 – ‘For skateboarders, towns become massive playgrounds’

It can be dangerous – I’ve fractured an elbow, my ankle and both wrists (twice). I used to skate with my cast on As a teenager I used to hang out at the skate park after school. It’s where most of my friends were. I’d just sit there while they all skated, chatting to them when they were resting. I thought it looked really cool. Back then it was rare to see girl skaters, so even though I gave it a go and my friends were supportive, I didn’t really get into it. That changed when I started uni and moved to Brighton. The majority of skaters were still guys, and when I’d go to a skate park people would stare; but I reached a point where I just stopped caring and got on with it.As a skater, you see the world differently. During driving lessons I’ll be trying to concentrate on the road, but then I’ll see some stairs or a rail and get distracted, thinking how great it would be to skate there. Towns become massive playgrounds. I’ll skate around Brighton with my mates and we’ll have so much fun discovering new spots. Continue reading...

This Is The First 10 Years Of Your Career

You push the glass doors open for the first time.It's a beautiful office. One that only a huge multinational company like the one you're joining today can afford. You work in the city center now; in a skyscraper. You can't wait to share it on Facebook.Predictably, you're early to work. It's your first day after all. You're also one of the first among your friends to get a job with a multinational. The rest are still interviewing and hoping.The ones who really matter of course. Some of your friends are already involved in startups of their own. You tell yourself that they don't count. That you want real corporate experience before starting your own company. It's comforting.You're nervous, but you're also skilled as hell in pretending that you're not. While your uni mates were busy getting involved in clubs, societies and events, you were reading business books and working on interview skills. You're prepared.You size up the other graduate trainees. They look nice enough, but you can already tell who the smart ones are, and who the politicians are.You secretly hope that one of your new colleagues will ask you about your excellent CGPA.Nobody gives a f*ck.1. RealityIt's your first-year performance appraisal. You're a good and responsible worker. Your boss sits down with you and tells you he appreciates all that you've done.But due to forced rankings, he can only rate you as a 3+. Which means a competent worker; slightly above average. You look at the slackers in office. Most of them get rated 3 as well.You're average. It's a bitter pill to swallow -- you've never been average your whole life.You don't understand why the politicians in your office get 2 ratings and above. Their bonuses will be double of yours.You accept your boss' appraisal and end the conversation with a smile.Then you bitch about it on Facebook.2. LustIt's the end of your second year. You understand how the company works now. You understand why some guys spend most of their time sucking up to the bosses, instead of doing actual work.You've been looking outside for a while. All your friends seem to have perfect lives. The investment bankers are rolling in money. The accountants and lawyers seem to be doing great too. You never meet them much, but you keep seeing Instagram pictures of their exotic vacations and clubbing nights. You wonder how they can afford it.You're jealous.You need a new job. Otherwise you'll never afford that glamorous lifestyle you want. You don't want to wait till you're old to be rich. You gorge on articles saying how you need to step out of your comfort zone because that's where the magic happens.You wait for your second-year bonus. Then you resign.You're Gen-Y. 3. RevelationYou start fresh in another multinational. "Here it'll be different," you say. "Here it'll be merit-based." It's an American company so you know they're committed to fairness and transparency. More importantly, they have US dollars.You like how things move faster in a smaller company. You can't help comparing yourself to your ex-colleagues. When they meet you, they all say "You look so happy now."Of course you're happy to see them. It helps you forget your current problems at work.You swapped bureaucracy for uncertainty. Predictability for long working hours. Great benefits for tough learning. But it's okay -- you can't afford to regret your decision. "Rough seas make good sailors," you tell yourself.You still benchmark yourself against your uni mates. The startup guys are hustling like crazy now. You read their stories on your feed, and think about how their lives must be so interesting. You haven't met the doctors in person for years.Thank God for social media.You realize everything comes with a price.4. PainYou start to feel the itch again.Two years in and you're dragging yourself to work. You're not sure if you've lost motivation or if you've just mastered the game. You feel that showing up on time is less important than being friends with the boss.You arrive late in office one day to see a memo for all employees. The big bosses in America have decided to restructure the company.A couple of hours later your boss calls you to his office. He says you have nothing to worry about, even though he seems to be worrying about something himself. He tells you that your future is bright -- as long as you don't keep slacking off at work.One afternoon, two HR people enter your boss' office. He walks out with a box, and stops by your cubicle to say "All the best." You will never see him again.You're angry; confused. But with the restructuring comes your first promotion.5. DiscoveryYou've made it big now. Or at least, you think you've made it.Just to be sure, you Google what the average 29-year-old's salary is. Phew, you make double the average salary. You compare your Instagram travel photos to those of your friends. Yes, you've been to more countries than most of them. Plus you have better pictures.It's not that you want to beat everyone so badly. But you just need to know that you're doing well. That you're not average.Except for Sara. Sara has traveled more than you. Damn it, it must be because of her rich boyfriend.And Dan. But Dan's the founder of his own tech startup. He's found a way to beat the system, so that doesn't really count.You secretly want to be like Dan.Every two years, you've either had a promotion or moved to a different company. But you're starting to wonder if you're going to be a corporate slave all your life. You now gorge on articles that talk about passion, purpose, and freedom.You dream about starting your own company. It would be awesome to be your own boss, and do whatever the f*ck you want. But you're scared; you know the statistics -- 90% of businesses fail within the first 18 months.You start to consider all the common side hustles: Uber, Unit Trusts, Property, Insurance, and Online Business.You briefly think about joining an MLM scheme. 6. PrioritiesTime is the most precious thing to you now. You spend too much time at work, but you know you should really be prioritizing your partner and baby.It's so hard to balance everything -- sometimes you feel overwhelmed. You've given up so many things but you still can't find enough time. You secretly wonder if you're a bad partner or a bad parent. Maybe both.Relief comes every Saturday -- when you meet your close friends for brunch. There, you talk about the normal things -- work, kids and property investment. Like you, most of your friends have apartments and families now. Even the doctors. They've finally re-emerged.Three of you stick around longer after the rest go home, talking about starting a business. Like a mini-brainstorming session, each of you writes down ideas on a paper napkin, and everyone dissects them together.You have great ideas, but no time.But that's okay. At least you're making small steps towards owning your own business. You'll worry about how to execute your ideas later.It feels great. It feels like you're on the path to freedom.7. OpportunityYour business never gets past the paper napkin stage. But it's okay -- you'll start something once you've finished your MBA. "The knowledge will be necessary," you tell yourself.You're bored at work: same shit, different day. More and more of your friends have left the corporate world to "pursue my passion." They tell amazing stories about how they're excited to go to work every morning.You try to feel happy for them, but at the same time you wonder if they're secretly broke. If they have no money in the bank. The economy sucks, and some of your other friends have recently lost their jobs. You wonder what their plans for the future are.You feel like quitting, but commitments. Commitments. Your car loan is huge, but you had bought that BMW anyway to reward yourself for all your hard work. You deserved it.Besides, if you quit -- you're not really sure what you're passionate about anyway. Except music. You love music; but you don't want to be a starving musician.The phone rings -- it's your biggest competitor's HR director. She wants to bring you over to their company and offers you a VP position. You like how the words sound: Vice-President. At 32 years old, you would be the youngest in the company. And definitely the youngest among your friends.The work would be similar to what your boss currently does. It doesn't excite you, but at least you'll be paid 35% more. And Status. You tell the HR director to give you a few days to think about it. 8. Destiny Your hands hover over the keyboard as Resignation_Letter_Template.docx stares back at you. But there’s so many things to think about. The money would be good. More stuff for you and your family, and you can finally afford that long-planned Eurotrip. At the same time, you would be losing your seniority and influence in the company. You don’t play politics, but you know what powerful friends can do for you now. Besides, you really feel like ditching all the stress and doing what you love instead. Why not leave the corporate race, ditch the Master’s, and become a simple musician? It seems like a carefree life. And if you played enough gigs, maybe you could earn just enough... You hesitate; it’s never that simple. The grass is always greener on the other side. It’s never that simple. Your thoughts are interrupted when your boss suddenly calls you to his office. You’re worried ― did someone tell him? “We’ve been monitoring your performance,” he says. “And as Nora is leaving soon, we’d like to offer you a promotion. You’ll be taking on her responsibilities for a period of six months. Then we’ll evaluate how you’re doing ― and can discuss your new salary then.” “OK?” - - - You feel the weight of the world on your shoulders. Decisions, decisions... Your head spins. You take a deep breath and look around. Your eye briefly catches the calendar on your boss’ desk. It’s almost your career ten-year anniversary. Almost ten years since you first started work ― gone in a flash. You realize you’re really just starting out.   - - - Read More: For the Day When Work Breaks Your Heart.

Unilever отказалась от слияния с Kraft Heinz

Американская Kraft Heinz получила от международного производителя потребительских товаров Unilever отказ в ответ на запрос по слиянию компаний. «Unilever отклонила предложение, поскольку не видит для акционеров никаких преимуществ, финансовых или стратегических»,— цитирует CNBC сообщение компании.Kraft Heinz подтвердила, что сделала Unilever предложение о покупке компании за $143 млрд. «Хотя Unilever отклонила предложение, мы рассчитываем на сотрудничество и достижение согласия по условиям сделки»,— уточнила американская корпорация.Компания Kraft Heinz была образована в 2015 году в результате слияния Heinz и Kraft Foods.

Как отправить ребенка учиться заграницу?

= Реклама для тех, кто хочет получить качественное образование =Мой старший сын подумывает о том, чтобы учиться за границей. Не откладывая это дело в долгий ящик, мы сразу начали "разведку боем": отправились в Университет Амстердама разбираться в тонкостях поступления.А их оказалось немало. Например, в большинство иностранных вузов принимают после 12 лет школы, тогда как в России школьная программа рассчитана всего на 11. Как быть? Выход есть такой: пройти годовую программу подготовки Foundation (Pathway), при успешном окончании которой можно поступить на первый или сразу на второй курс бакалавриата.Это программа специально для иностранных студентов, и требования для поступления по английскому чуть ниже. Например, чтобы поступить в США на бакалавриат, нужно сдать TOEFL не меньше 80, а на программу Pathway требуется TOEFL примерно 60. Во время подготовки ребята приобретают навыки академического языка, которые будут важны при дальнейшем обучении и выполнении заданий. Например, работе над эссе и презентациями, прохождении тестов, умении работать в команде и др. Студенты адаптируются к новой среде и уверенно чувствуют себя далее.Еще я узнал, что в той же Америке в режиме онлайн действует кредитная система и выбор предметов - если вы не знакомы с подобным подходом, можно не успеть забронировать место для изучения необходимого предмета.В общем, я уже настроился, что процесс поступления займет немало сил и времени. К счастью, в России есть компания ITEC, которая 20 лет помогает в этом ответственном деле. И даже более того, привозит в Москву 50 лучших университетов мира для встречи с российскими студентами и школьниками. Случится это событие 11 февраля в Lotte Hotel Moscow в рамках выставки «UNIS FAIR 2017 – лучшие университеты мира». Вход свободный.А пока я хочу поделиться с вами несколькими важными моментами, которые следует знать, если вы решили отправить своего ребенка учиться заграницу...Шаг 1: Выбираем подходящий вузЭто самый важный момент, от которого зависит всё — страна, специальность, программы, стоимость обучения, возможности для дальнейшего трудоустройства и т.д. Прекрасно, если у вас есть друзья или знакомые, которые отучились и могут помочь определиться. Но если вы не уверены, что их опыт подходит вашему ребенку, имеет смысл обратиться к профессиональным консультантам, которые на протяжении многих лет отправляют студентов в лучшие учебные заведения мира.Как выбрать правильно? Важно соотнести свои желания и возможности, пройти профориентационные тесты и собеседования. Но для начала имеет смысл посетить выставку и познакомиться с требованиями вузов. Здесь будет возможность задать все интересующие вопросы непосредственно представителям высших школ. Кстати, с некоторыми вузами ITEC имеет эксклюзивный контракт. Соответственно, только эта компания имеет право представлять учебное заведение на территории России.Шаг 2: Собираем документыПосле того как университет выбран, собираем пакет документов (выписки по оценкам, мотивационные и рекомендательные письма и т.д.). Не забудьте: чтобы поступить в зарубежный вуз необходимо сдать международный экзамен на знание иностранного языка. Для англоязычных стран это IELTS и TOEFL. Если вы не знакомы с форматом экзаменов или уровень английского не дотягивает до минимально требуемого, то вам нужна дополнительная подготовка. В этом случае ITEC предлагает сдать пробный экзамен. Буквально через пару дней вы получите результат, который покажет, какие пробелы ликвидировать и сколько на это потребуется времени. Многие университеты рассматривают документы абитуриентов на возможность получения стипендии за отличную успеваемость или спортивные достижения и др. И тут важно не упустить момент и в нужный отдел отправить заявку.Шаг 3: Едем учитьсяНаконец, после успешной сдачи вступительных испытаний, подачи всех документов и получения офферов, самое время задуматься о бронировании проживания и получении студенческой визы. Конечно, все можно сделать самому. Но и здесь необходимо учесть все нюансы. Если упустить дедлайн по бронированию, то жилье, скорее всего, придется искать самому. Есть свои правила при оформлении студенческой визы, несоблюдение которых поставит под угрозу собственно обучение. А, может, не надеяться на собственные силы, и также доверить решение технических аспектов профессионалам?Отличным началом обучения за рубежом может стать выставка «UNIS FAIR 2017 – лучшие университеты мира». Можно прямо на выставке перейти от слов к делу и пройти бесплатное тестирование на уровень владения английским языком, посетить мастер-классы и семинары, которые будут проходить весь день.Например, "Как написать выигрышное мотивационное письмо в университет?" поможет разобраться в основных вопросах: Что необходимо включить в письмо? Каких ошибок важно избежать? Как правильно структурировать свои идеи? Это очень важно, поскольку хорошо составленное письмо может оказаться решающим аргументом для приемной комиссии, если вы поступаете на программу с высоким конкурсом.На семинаре "Всё об университетских рейтингах США и не только" вы узнаете, как составляются рейтинги, как грамотно ими пользоваться и какие критерии стоит учитывать. Michael Lawson, представитель US News Global Education расскажет обо всех особенностях рейтинговой системы США, пояснит, на что стоит обращать внимание при поиске вуза в рейтинге, и почему не всегда стоит стремиться поступить в вуз из первой десятки общего рейтинга.Полная программа мастер-классов и семинаров.После короткой регистрации на сайте вход на выставку свободный.А что делать, если вы живете не в Москве? Региональные представительства ITEC проводят подобные выставки в крупнейших городах России. Вот расписание ближайших событий:5 февраля – Иркутск7 февраля – Красноярск9 февраля – Новосибирск10 февраля – КазаньНи пуха, ни пера и Stay Tuned!Подписывайтесь на мой канал в YoutubeПодписывайтесь на обновления в ЖЖССЫЛКИ НА МОИ СОЦСЕТИ ПОЛЕЗНЫЕ ССЫЛКИ ДЛЯ ПУТЕШЕСТВЕННИКОВ✈ Бесплатная поездка на Uber✈ Лучшие цены на отели✈ Лучшая симка для путешествий✈ Лучший подбор туров✈ Лучшая медстраховка✈ Лучший кэшбек✈ Лучшие цены на ЖД билеты✈ Лучший интернет-магазин

My advice for other introverts starting uni?

Being an introvert isn’t the same as being shy or a loner. University can be a place where we thrive Introverts make up somewhere between a third and half of the population, but we are often misunderstood. Being an introvert doesn’t necessarily that mean you dislike social interaction. Nor does it mean you’re debilitatingly shy and have nothing to say. Susan Cain sums it up well in her book Quiet: “Introverts recharge their batteries by being alone; extroverts need to recharge when they don’t socialise enough.” Related: Are you an extrovert or an introvert? – quiz Continue reading...

Honda выпустила самобалансирующие мотоциклы

Балансировать на мотоцикле на высоких скоростях легко, нужно лишь крепко держаться. А вот неспешная езда по крытой парковке, в пробках или полная остановка – это другое дело, и мотоциклисту потребуется некоторое мастерство, чтобы не упасть. Подобные манёвры особенно сложны на тяжелых мотоциклах типа крузер. Компания Honda для обретения лучшего баланса разработала технологию Riding Assist, позволяющую совладать с железным конём.

After CES: Automakers Shift from Horsepower to Processing Power

Corbin Brown, Associate Director, Giant Spoon Judging from this year’s Consumer Electronics Show, mobility has supplanted that long-standing automaker race to get from zero to 60 in record time. Just days ahead of the Detroit Auto Show, major automakers revved into Vegas with a major change from the past 50 years and a clear signal about where their industry is headed: from the thrill of driving to the thrill of … riding. A New Era in Mobility “We’re a mobility company!” nearly every automaker screamed on the showroom floor. It’s quite the change from just two years ago, when companies such as Tesla, Toyota and Chevy drove into CES with flashy new electric vehicles or environmentally conscious concept cars in tow. Last year, brands including Mercedes, Faraday and Audi teased that they’d be more focused on autonomy. But this year, major automakers are increasingly transforming into true technology companies that are thinking about holistic mobility — even if that means prepping for a world in which car ownership declines. Here’s how: Car “Derivatives”: Hyundai and Honda, in particular, are focused on applying the technology and intellectual property they’ve built for vehicles to other forms of mobility. There’s Hyundai’s exoskeleton, which is comparable to Lockheed Martin’s mech-suit; Honda’s Uni-Cub, a motorized unicycle that looks sort of like a Segway with a seat; and Ford’s bike-sharing system. These were a few of the many examples. My favorite derivative? Nissan’s autonomous chair, because apparently the world needs such a device. Licensing Must-Have Software: Autonomy is on its way to ubiquity. Mercedes, Nissan, Hyundai, Faraday and other carmakers have all touted their unique autonomous technology. Toyota and Honda made waves with their Alexa-like artificial intelligence–driven assistants — a personification of vehicles that sense and respond to both your emotions and needs. It won’t be long, I suspect, before we see car companies that own the right kind of intellectual property being able to license their software to other manufacturers or inject the technology into derivative products. Services: Rather than just manufacturing vehicles for the likes of Uber and Lyft, several car companies, including Hyundai and Cadillac, revealed plans to “Uberize” their own fleets so that subscribers can summon, share or rent certain vehicles. Ford, perhaps the furthest along in this area, bought Chariot, a ride-sharing service in San Francisco that is already helping the company monetize its own fleet as a service. Mercedes’ new app, Mercedes Me, turns its vehicles into giant sensor-laden Fitbits — able to access and analyze your driving behavior, appointments, sleep quality, physical activity and stress levels, as well as traffic and weather information. The company essentially wants to act as the central operating system (OS) for your connected world combining data from, say, your Nest smart home hub, Apple Watch and Withings Aura sleep sensor, with data from your car. Car Companies Become to Uber What Airbus Is to American Airlines What do you get when you combine autonomy with networked fleets and Alexa-like AI assistants? A completely new driver behavior that changes the way we think about cars and ownership, not to mention transportation. In the not-so-distant future, what will happen to the concept of a “brand” as it relates to the auto industry? Think about the last car commercial you saw. Did it have hairpin turns and elicit a few goose bumps — with Fast and Furious–style drifts? Well, remember it, because it’s a relic of a dying era. When autonomy becomes a true commodity, we will no longer share the same visceral connection from hand to wheel, from foot to pedal. Indeed, when a consumer makes a choice about “brand” in the future, they’ll be thinking about a completely different set of considerations that are uniquely suited to riding — not driving. In this future, the brand decision will be made up of ride-sharing services, not auto manufacturers. The brand you’ll be considering might include Uber, Lyft, Chariot or one of the many new ride suppliers that are bound to pop up. And each service will have its own unique selling proposition — Lyft may be more kid-friendly, Uber may be the best for business and another vendor (Tinder?) might be the best for picking up a date. But even before we get there, when most cars on the road will be semi-autonomous, car buyers will be looking for what they can do in their car, not where it can take them. In the near future, values like accountability, service, comfort, interface compatibility, entertainment and predictive intelligence will supplant horsepower and turning radius. Forgot the Sharing Economy. Next Up: The Autonomy Economy Of all the products and technologies at CES, autonomy has the greatest potential to change life as we know it. As Andreessen Horowitz’s Benedict Evans points out, autonomy will have a drastic impact on the global economy — whether through oil production, population (see: fewer annual road deaths and fewer organ donations), city infrastructure, logistics, insurance and so on. Think about the way our world has changed since the iPhone launched nearly a decade ago now — and multiply that many times over. Yes, autonomy will give birth to entirely new economies that transform dining, shopping, entertainment and media, productivity, education and manufacturing. And after getting a peek into the future this past weekend, it’s clear that we’re in for a ride. Innovation marketing agency Giant Spoon joined forces with OZY Media this year at CES to produce multimedia content that examined how innovations will impact the future for consumers, advertisers, and marketers.

Having a waiting list of new clients for your products or services is a good problem. Who doesn't want to have it? But while anyone can jabber about how good it is, few businesses have had the fortune of seeing it happen to them and even fewer have the transparency to share what's worked for them with everyone else. Well, I found an inspiring entrepreneur who's done it consistently and who's willing to share what works with my readers - how awesome! Enter Sabri Suby, Head of Growth at online marketing agency, King Kong. Sabri Suby has gone from starting the business in his bedroom with $0 and and aiming to turnover more than $7 million in 2017. CREDIT: KINGKONG.COM.AU I interview him and we had a lively, enriching chat about his business and some good secrets of his success. Enjoy! Tell us about your background and how you started your business. I grew up in a small beach town, Byron Bay. My first serious job and exposure to sales was a cold-calling gig, where we would call businesses to buy their empty ink cartridges....and then we'd go on the sell them back once refilled. I struggled at first, however after 3 weeks I was the top salesperson and was making a great income at the ripe old age of seventeen. I lived in London and the US for some time before returning back to Australia. I enrolled in a Business Degree Majoring in Marketing. It was at uni where I started my first business over the summer break, it took off and I dropped out to manage the business growth. Since dropping out of university I've started, run and sold several multi-million dollar businesses. All of which, were centered around the digital space. I took a look at what other agencies were doing and all they seemed to talk about were impressions, click-through-rates and social reach. They all failed to talk in actual dollars and ROI. Many times I had gotten quotes for these types of digital marketing services and they all came back in the ridiculous $10,000's of thousands of dollar range for simple things like banner ads. I saw a real gap in the market for an agency that would actually multiply a client's marketing spend into ROI. No wishy washy branding campaigns but actual real revenue generation and customer acquisition. What problem does King Kong solve and why is it important? We solve the biggest problem that exists for businesses "how do I get new customers". It's something we're immersed in every minute of every day. The number one reason businesses fail is "lack of capital" which in other words is lack of sales and revenue. Sales and marketing is 80% of the battle in business and we solve this problem. How did you come across this idea and what motivated you to start King Kong? Having started several businesses all centered around the digital space, Customer acquisition has always been my responsibility. Many times in my businesses I had gotten quotes for these types of digital marketing services and they all came back with ridiculous strategies with no focus on ROI. I saw a real gap in the market for an agency that would actually multiply a client's marketing spend into ROI. No 'wishy washy branding campaigns' but actual real revenue generation and customer acquisition. I think having this focus in our business is why we've grown so fast and have had to literally turn down clients and put them on a wait list in order to not compromise the quality of our work. How did you acquire your first customer and how long did that take? Cold calling. One day. How many hours a week do you work and could you tell us your schedule from start to finish? Work starts from the moment I open my eyes, until I close them at night. As entrepreneur I look at everything I do as work, as it all plays a vital role to who I am as a person, my energy levels and the outcomes and goals I'm striving for in my business. Most weeks I would work 100+ hours. I wake up at 5am and go the gym, where I do a mixture of cardio and weight training, followed an intense sauna session. This really gets me into a peak state to start my day.

Having a waiting list of new clients for your products or services is a good problem. Who doesn't want to have it? But while anyone can jabber about how good it is, few businesses have had the fortune of seeing it happen to them and even fewer have the transparency to share what's worked for them with everyone else. Well, I found an inspiring entrepreneur who's done it consistently and who's willing to share what works with my readers - how awesome! Enter Sabri Suby, Head of Growth at online marketing agency, King Kong. Sabri Suby has gone from starting the business in his bedroom with $0 and and aiming to turnover more than $7 million in 2017. CREDIT: KINGKONG.COM.AU I interview him and we had a lively, enriching chat about his business and some good secrets of his success. Enjoy! Tell us about your background and how you started your business. I grew up in a small beach town, Byron Bay. My first serious job and exposure to sales was a cold-calling gig, where we would call businesses to buy their empty ink cartridges....and then we'd go on the sell them back once refilled. I struggled at first, however after 3 weeks I was the top salesperson and was making a great income at the ripe old age of seventeen. I lived in London and the US for some time before returning back to Australia. I enrolled in a Business Degree Majoring in Marketing. It was at uni where I started my first business over the summer break, it took off and I dropped out to manage the business growth. Since dropping out of university I've started, run and sold several multi-million dollar businesses. All of which, were centered around the digital space. I took a look at what other agencies were doing and all they seemed to talk about were impressions, click-through-rates and social reach. They all failed to talk in actual dollars and ROI. Many times I had gotten quotes for these types of digital marketing services and they all came back in the ridiculous $10,000's of thousands of dollar range for simple things like banner ads. I saw a real gap in the market for an agency that would actually multiply a client's marketing spend into ROI. No wishy washy branding campaigns but actual real revenue generation and customer acquisition. What problem does King Kong solve and why is it important? We solve the biggest problem that exists for businesses "how do I get new customers". It's something we're immersed in every minute of every day. The number one reason businesses fail is "lack of capital" which in other words is lack of sales and revenue. Sales and marketing is 80% of the battle in business and we solve this problem. How did you come across this idea and what motivated you to start King Kong? Having started several businesses all centered around the digital space, Customer acquisition has always been my responsibility. Many times in my businesses I had gotten quotes for these types of digital marketing services and they all came back with ridiculous strategies with no focus on ROI. I saw a real gap in the market for an agency that would actually multiply a client's marketing spend into ROI. No 'wishy washy branding campaigns' but actual real revenue generation and customer acquisition. I think having this focus in our business is why we've grown so fast and have had to literally turn down clients and put them on a wait list in order to not compromise the quality of our work. How did you acquire your first customer and how long did that take? Cold calling. One day. How many hours a week do you work and could you tell us your schedule from start to finish? Work starts from the moment I open my eyes, until I close them at night. As entrepreneur I look at everything I do as work, as it all plays a vital role to who I am as a person, my energy levels and the outcomes and goals I'm striving for in my business. Most weeks I would work 100+ hours. I wake up at 5am and go the gym, where I do a mixture of cardio and weight training, followed an intense sauna session. This really gets me into a peak state to start my day. I arrive at the office by 7am and start my day with my important tasks first, this is definitely when I'm my most productive. 8:30am I'll stop for breakfast or a bulletproof coffee.

Симпозиум, посвященный 120-летию со дня рождения Михаила Бахтина (Венгрия)

28 – 29 мая 2015 г. Литературо- и Культуроведческий Институт Университета Паннон совместно с Академической Комиссией Венгерской Научной Академии г. Веспрема и Института Изучения Языков и Культуры Университета Монаш организует международный симпозиум к стодвадцатилетнему юбилею со дня рождения Михаила Бахтина и в память сороколетия со дня его смерти.  Михаил Бахтин (1895–1975) является одним из самых часто цитируемых оригинальных мыслителей двадцатого века, который оказал исключительное влияние на формирование дисциплин изучения человеческой природы. Вся многослойность и важность этого влияния еще так и не была до конца раскрыта богатыми и широкоохватывающими исследованиями. Его произведения в большинстве университетов являются частью процесса изучения гуманитарных наук. Самая известная его работа – полифоническая модель романа, разработанная им для описания прозаических произведений Достоевского – содержит ключевые мотивы воззрения ученого и мыслителя. Эти мотивы – диалог, многоязычие, речевые жанры, двуголосое слово (карневализация, хронотоп) – выходя далеко за рамки литературоведения, охватывают области философических, эстетических, языковых, коммуникативно-теоретических и культурно-теоретических дискурсов. Данную обширную продуктивность, очевидно, можно объяснить такой укладкой, что Бахтин переосмысливает предметы разъясняющих наук, сопровождающиеся изолированием, с позиции модальности жизненной событийности, посредством чего «исследует» не только мысль и ее объект, но и формирует культуру мышления. Находки, разгадки и концепции Бахтина по этой причине также влияли и на начавшиеся во второй половине двадцатого века исследования семиотики, теории прозы, поэтики, риторики, нарратологии, культуры семиотики и культурологии, а также широко и на лингвистическую сферу. Полный спектр его работ мы так и не смогли оценить до последнего момента по той причине, что часть его трудов была доступна только в форме рукописей. В период 1996–2012 гг. было издано семь томов произведений Бахтина на русском языке, содержащих также и критические замечания, параллельно с этим были опубликованы тексты со спорным авторством. Таким образом, стало возможным создать обширную картину его творчества, и подвергнуть его детальному изучению. Прочитать до конца теоретические труды Бахтина означает сегодня то же самое, как если бы через ракурс некоторых ключевых проблем переосмыслить процессы формирования лингвистики, философии и изучения литературы начиная с 20-х годов прошлого века до наших дней, а также заново поставить их актуальные вопросы. На сегодняшний день уже и так понятно, что Бахтин сделал попытку перешагнуть через гносеологическое и феноменологическое мышление, когда инициировал толкование диалога в качестве методологического принципа в области гуманитарных наук. В результате этого человеческое мышление переместилось в горизонт онтологии, субъект которого – согласно аргументации Бахтина – «бытие, раскрываемое в высказывании и в речи», которое не уступает принуждениям, не может быть сковано, а свободно раскрывается перед нашими познавательными поступками. Предлагаемые для обсуждения темы: - Теория поступка Бахтина и традиция философской антропологии (Kierkegaard, Scheler, Cassirer, Buber и другие) - Место Бахтина в современной теории литературы и в философском дискурсе (Ricœur, Levinas, Merleau-Ponty, Lacan, Frye, Mamardashvili, Jauss, Gadamer и другие) - Слово, знак, троп, символ – аспекты семиотики и лингвистики - Лингвистические и металингвистические аспекты высказывания и языковой гибридности (многоязычие, перевод и т.д.) - Теория жанров художественных произведений (от речевых жанров до романа) - Культура смеха - Нарративная идентичность и диалогическая идентичность (теории субъекта) - Поэтика и герменевтика двуголосого слова - Искусство прозы Достоевского - Продуктивность взгляда Бахтина в толковании литературных произведений Языки симпозиума: английский, русский. Дата проведения симпозиума: 28 – 29 мая 2015 г. Место проведения: Веспрем (Венгрия), Университет Паннон, ул. Вар 20. Заявки и участие: Просим подавать заявки на английском и русском языках.
