Why After Sales is as important as the Sale…Diary of an Employable Blogaholic

Why After Sales is as important as the Sale… The weekend just gone I was travelling home from Stansted airport, in Essex.

Diary of an unemployed Blogaholic – ‘Help Me Help you’

As I write this post it is the start of Social Media Week, a Global event that spans over 20 cities and around 1000 events… I will come back to this in a minute or so. I have now been ‘employable’ for around 7 months, and in that time myself and my ‘employable’ Co Founder […]
