1. Are you delivering?
According to strategy consultant Nicole Dufft, many businesses aren’t delivering a good enough customer experience – and in a digital day and age customers aren’t shy about taking to social media to complain.

Don’t lose heart though, there are ways of bringing it back.
2. Painting a picture of Microsoft’s new releases
It’s a big week for Microsoft as the Windows 10 updates are released – including, old-school artistes will be pleased to hear, a revamped version of Paint – as well as new virtual reality headsets, and the company’s first all-in-one desktop, the Surface Studio.

Have a good one!
