Kurtenbach: Hey Warriors, welcome back to the ‘real NBA’

They’ve been scrapping for everything they get and find themselves at the mercy of 3-point variance on a near-nightly basis.They’ve been lacking rhythm, verve, and joy.And their seasons are an exhausting grind.

Rajah to promote children’s rights

first_img15 August 2007Leading South African fashion designer Gavin Rajah has been appointed a goodwill ambassador for the United Nations Children’s Fund (Unicef), joining a host of other international celebrities in a quest to secure children’s rights around the world.Accepting his latest accolade and responsibilities, Rajah said he had always been a great admirer of Unicef’s work to protect the world’s children, and pledged to donate a percentage of sales of Gavin Rajah clothing and accessories to Unicef towards its child protection programmes in South Africa.“I believe in the important role that protection and development of children plays in the creation of healthy and prosperous communities, countries and our world,” he said.“I am proud to have been given the opportunity to help Unicef protect, care for and stamp out the most abhorrent crime of violence against children, particularly those in my own country.”Rajah is one of the founders of the Cape Town Fashion Week, and his striking designs and glamorous garments have been used by many a Miss South Africa finalist.He also has the honour of being the only South African designer invited by France’s prestigious Federation Française de la Couture to showcase his collections at the Paris Fashion Week.Rajah also announced plans to work with Unicef and other partners to establish a sustainable development community-based project that supports families and young people who wish to learn garment manufacturing skills.This is a crucial industry in the Western Cape, where he operates his design studio and where his world-famous garments are made.Unicef’s South Africa country representative, Macharia Kamau, said the partnership demonstrated how a socially responsible company can use its creativity and resources to help ensure the well-being of children.“Through his generous philanthropy and advocacy and his impressive creative achievements as a fashion designer and entrepreneur, Gavin Rajah promotes the rights of women and children to protection from violence, abuse and exploitation, and actively supports the development of critical life skills for young people,” Kamau said.SouthAfrica.info reporter Want to use this article in your publication or on your website?See: Using SAinfo materiallast_img read more

Building Products Dealer Dumps FedEx

first_imgBuilders who order specialty supplies from New York-based 475 High Performance Building Supply can stop looking for the FedEx delivery truck.The company has announced it will stop using FedEx “wherever possible” because of corporate support for the National Rifle Association and will use alternatives like UPS instead. The statement, posted on the company’s website March 15, said reducing gun violence is as much an “existential imperative” as cutting carbon emissions through better building practices.“Arming U.S. citizens with automatic weapons is not a result of a vote or even popular opinion, but allowed by politicians whose opinions are bought and coerced by the National Rifle Association,” the statement said. “The same way an individual building project can fight fossil fuel interests, individual companies are now asked to stand up and refuse to engage with those who prioritize unfettered gun sales over common sense.”A FedEx marketing program that gives discounted rates to members of the NRA was behind the move, said chief operating officer Ken Levenson, and 475 was inspired by such companies as Ben & Jerry’s, Delta and Patagonia in distancing themselves from the pro-gun lobbying organization. The move comes at a time of intense political pressure on Congress to toughen gun laws, including the student-led“March for Our Lives” protests over the weekend.The company said FedEx support for the NRA’s “extremist, deadly, and socially destructive positions” should be resisted, adding, “Hence we will not willfully use or fund companies that counteract our values and compromise our planet and people’s overall well being.”Despite the switch, the company said customers shouldn’t experience slower delivery schedules. Four-seven-five sells a variety of air-sealing, insulation, and ventilation products not generally available in Big Box stores, including tapes, gaskets, membranes, and adhesives popular with high-performance builders.Levenson said 475 will continue to use FedEx in Canada, but will be able to find alternatives in the U.S. 99% of the time.“We can’t get rid of FedEx entirely,” he said by telephone, “and we don’t think that boycotting this company or that company is going to rock the world. But we want to show some pressure, and contribute to some momentum.” FedEx spells out positionIn a statement of its own, FedEx says it is aware of “some continuing concerns related to the NRA.”FedEx says the NRA is one of hundreds of organizations enrolled in a marketing program whose members get lower rates for shipping.The statement reads in part, “FedEx is a common carrier under federal law and therefore does not and will not deny service or discriminate against any leal entity regardless of their policy positions or political views.” The price breaks are for businesses and people who belong to the NRA, not for the NRA itself.FedEx adds that it does not believe assault rifles should be in the hands of U.S. citizens.“While we strongly support the constitutional right of U.S. citizens to own firearms subject to appropriate background checks, FedEx views assault rifles and large capacity magazines as an inherent potential danger to schools, workplaces, and communities when such weapons are misused,” the statement said “We therefore support restricting them to the military. Most important, FedEx believes urgent action is required at the local, state, and federal level to protect schools and students from incidents such as the horrific tragedy in Florida on February 14th.”Levenson called the FedEx statements a “distraction trying to move people’s eyes off the ball,” adding the company could alter the voluntary marketing program to exclude the NRA without running afoul of any federal regulations.“The NRA is such a fundamentally bad actor in our democracy that when someone is given the opportunity to put some daylight between it, we hope they take it,” Levenson said.last_img read more

First Look: State, A Streams App Of The Future

first_imgOne feature I really like in State is the ability to “follow” a page of streams that someone else has created. The State team has created several of these pages: News, Magazines, Food. Each page – or “workspace” to use the service’s parlance – is made up of many different streams of content. The Magazine one features the Twitter streams of various magazine publishers. There is limited ability to filter – for example, you can select to view only images from a stream. But I imagine more filtering options will be added over time. Then, like TweetDeck, you’re able to view various aspects of the stream. For Twitter, you can select to view content by home timeline, mentions, user, place, tag, search and list. The same principle applies to content from App.net and Instagram. As streams of information become more popular on the Web, we need better ways to consume and manage them. Apps that allow you to aggregate content from different sources – Twitter, Facebook, blogs, news websites and more – may become very popular. That’s if they can overcome the increasingly walled gardens of Facebook and Twitter. Which makes creating a streams app a risky proposition, because there is no guarantee they’ll be able to access all of a user’s social data. A new service called State is trying, though. It came onto my radar this week and it passed my initial “I’m still using it after 30 minutes of tinkering” test.State is currently in private beta. At first glance, it looks part FriendFeed, part TweetDeck, part iGoogle, and part something wholly new.In an email to me, co-founder Joshua Lewis explained that he and his business partner Galen Wolfe-Pauly built State to try and answer the question of “what the future of the web looks like when you replace static content with streams of data”.I mentioned a few services that State reminded me of, but for the founders it’s more like “the Photoshop of cloud data.” Lewis said that State is “a general purpose tool to manipulate, filter and publish streams of data.” Incidentally, State’s founders are already worried about the future of Twitter integration in State. It added App.net support soon after, partly as a hedge against Twitter pulling its data completely.How State WorksYou can add streams of content from up to four services (so far): Twitter, App.net, Instagram and Dropbox. This is the part that reminds me of a start page, like early Netvibes or iGoogle, because you end up with panels of content across the web page. You can also connect to Instapaper, enabling you to save content for later reading. By default your pages are private, but you can choose to share or make them public. While State only connects to five services so far, you can imagine it eventually hooking into many more. This is where State reminds me of FriendFeed, the early feed management service acquired by Facebook just over three years ago. At the time it was acquired, FriendFeed could connect to 58 services. The Dos and Don’ts of Brand Awareness Videos To get a tour of some of State’s other features, check out this demo. The service is in private beta, but you can register your interest here.It’s clearly early days for State, but already I’m enjoying playing with it and building pages of streams. Keep an eye on this young service.

Professional Development: 9 Lessons I Learned in the Worst Way

first_imgThey say good judgment is the result of prior lousy judgment. That idea has proven true for me over the course of my life in sales. The following stories of nine mistakes are all true, and the name of the person responsible is known to you and cannot be changed to protect the guilty.Buying Clients: I was very young with a flush expense account to entertain clients or prospects. I had called on a contact at a large company in Century City to schedule a meeting, but all my attempts ended badly. I decided to ask the contact for lunch, and she agreed. She ordered two appetizers, two meals, and two desserts. The second of each course was her dinner later that night. She said hardly a word at lunch. However, by saying nothing, she said everything. Although you will see it done from time to time, you can’t buy clients.Not Checking for Competitive Threats: After five or six sales calls with a decision-maker, I gained a verbal commitment and scheduled to pick up a contract the following week. Instead, I received a call that he had chosen my competitor. After I had left the building, a competitor presented and showed hi something I didn’t offer. He liked what he saw and changed his mind. I never asked what other options he was considering or if he had seen anything he wanted that I hadn’t shared with him.Selling Price from Behind: My price was always higher than my competitor’s prices. My strategy was to build the value up before disclosing my higher price as a way to validate it. I had not yet thought of the difference being a more significant investment in the client’s solution, though that is what it was. At some point, I started explaining to prospective clients in the first meeting that my price was higher than my competitors, and the difference in price was how we invested in improving their results. I built the value through the rest of the process. It’s hard to see a higher price at the end of the sale—even when it serves your client to invest.Big Logos: My small company and I won a lot of huge, well-known clients. I created a slide with all the big logos and added them to a slide deck I used to explain our offerings. Many people were impressed. Several smaller prospects, however, had a negative response to the logos. One of them said, “I believe we might be too small for your company.” I protested, explaining that we were also a small company. What I did not understand for some time was that some clients were looking at the list and recognizing the risk of other, much larger, much more prestigious company they were sure would get the attention they needed. You have to know your audience, and the proof you need should match the client’s concern, not create a new one.The Front Door Is Locked: I started by calling on people in Human Resources. Most of them would tell me they already had a partner, and that my services were not needed. Some of them would meet with me to learn enough about my company to be able to tell other people on their team, we were not a good fit—and to protect their incumbent. So instead of walking through the front door, I very literally started walking in the back door of buildings and finding the person who used the service I provided. I found my way to the people who wanted better results and were not married to my competitor. The people guarding the front door found out they were going to be using us only after the decision was made by someone who wasn’t getting what they wanted.Assuming What’s Important: I had a meeting with a client that took me seven years to obtain. To prepare, I read the last three years of their annual reports, including the Chairman’s letters. Having done my homework, I had a list of their three biggest, most strategic initiatives. When I sat down with my contact, I started to describe how my solution could help with the strategic initiatives. He asked me where I came up with those initiatives, and I told him. He replied, “No one in this building cares about any of that. I need people who can drive forklifts. Can you get me those people.” Never one to avoid a necessary change of plans, I quickly said “yes,” without another word about the Chairman’s letter. I overshot the mark by not knowing my audience.Big Does Not Mean Dream Client: At the time, my largest client was spending millions of dollars with my firm. They were always late on their bill, and they were not good partners. There were many people on their leadership team who brutal to my people—and tried very hard to be tough on me, but lacking in effectiveness due to my demeanor in conflict. At some point, I had enough of how they treated my people and their lack of payment. The CEO of the company told me if I ever asked again or mentioned how they handled my people, he would fire me (using much more colorful language and what he thought was a threatening tone). I calmly told him I expected him to pay me, and that I was sending them the thirty-days notice canceling our contract. The money spent doesn’t mean your client is a dream client.New Stakeholder: After serving a client for seven years, they hired a new person into a role with authority over my program. The new stakeholder’s power grew as some of my contacts moved out of the company, always taking my team with them because of the better results we provided them. The new stakeholder wanted to make a name for themselves and decided to attack my company and me over our pricing. I defended the investment they were making and did my best to explain why they had made it in the first place. When this stakeholder had the opportunity, they removed us from the company. We continued to work on the stakeholders who knew us, and because of the decisions the new stakeholder made, within a year she was gone. We were back. Because we held so many relationships and did such good work, we suffered from the false illusion that we were safe. We were not.Not Leading: As a young leader, I found it challenging to get the results I need through others. I started with a terrible premise. I assumed that all people were just like me, self-starters, needing no direction or leadership. That plan, as you might have guessed, was a disaster. I doubled down on that bet by hiring experienced people and compensating them so I wouldn’t have to lead them. The results were even worse. After spending too much time and way too much money, I accepted that everything was my fault, and I started to lead.There is no substitute for experience when it comes to your growth and development. You can learn as much from your mistakes as you can your successes if you derive the lessons and avoid them in the future. What mistakes have you made, and what did you learn from them?
