We don't celebrate the end of financial year quite the same way we do for the end of the calendar year. Sometimes I wonder why not?
At least I hope you're celebrating. I hope the line in the sand at June 30 represents a positive milestone for your business.
I attended the World Business Forum in Sydney in May and June this year (along with 3000 of my closest friends). The 2 day event was packed with sensational speakers, inspiration and motivation and I want to share my top 9 take outs with you.
1. Perception of simplicity.
Ken Segall, former Ad Agency Creative Director at Apple, proposes that the perception of simplicity is essential. Our customers can get overwhelmed with too much choice. By making things simple for them, we can make their path to purchase easier and quicker. He argues that being simple isn't simple. It requires discipline and a ruthless approach, especially when it comes to the customer experience. He advises that in business we should do fewer things better. As the man behind the "i" in iMac, I think Ken knows a thing or two about simplicity and making it a commercial success. He challenges us with Einstein's quote: "If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough". How can you apply the principle of simplicity to your business?
