Education vs. Experience – The Trump Blog

You’ll find this topic here and there amongst my blogs here and on Monday Musings (ThatConsultantBloke). Given that many graduates I meet these days don’t actually have a great education then I tend to favour experience, but the Trumpster has a valid point here, and you don’t build a business empire like his unless you’re right more often that you’re wrong.

a bit of a busy week this week

I’ve got some stuff to do for the villa, admin things to do with guests coming over the next couple of months, paying the bills I can’t pay automatically, state and county tax returns for last month and prepapring the papers for our CPA to file our 2009 IRS return.

Tomorrow I’m off out for the day on business (Williams GP at Grove), and have a webinar booked for Thursday pm. First of those that I’ve done so not sure what to expect.

It’s also coming up to car MOT time and there are a couple of cosmetic issues that may need to be sorted, so I’d rather get them done now than pay through the nose later,

I’m also into another contract for writing exam papers for one of the professional bodies, and do something every day on those to keep them moving towards the deadline of late this month.

No time to be bored!

book launch in March

I was honoured to be invited to contribute 2 chapters to the latest edition of The Principles of Warehouse Design and am pleased to confirm that the launch has been announced for 10 March 2010. More news will be on the web site of the Chartered Institute of Logistics & Transport (CILT) and I’ll update this blog and my own web sites as the timing and venue are confirmed.

Congratulations to Peter and his team for their efforts in pulling the project together.
