Poppies

I got my first poppy today.  London does an amazing job at helping every generation to remember our history and our heritage.

If you get the chance, visit the poppy fields at The Tower of London – it is beautiful and poignant all in one.

An office is never just an office!

I sometimes wonder what happens to an office once people leave for the last time.

There are so many stories inside an office.  Hopes, dreams, ideas, sad times, happy times, emergencies, new customers, old customers, and a little bit of gossip thrown in for good measure.  Many people spend as much time in an office during the week as they do at home (especially if you discount sleeping time).

I wonder what will be here next.  Some stories ended here, but sometime soon new ones will begin.

Pret – A treat, an everyday treat, or too expensive?

The price of coffee seems to be rising in Pret….. I overheard one customer say it had become too expensive to have every day.  I think it depends on your relationship with the brand.   I dont go to pret every day.  But their coffee is good so I like to use them for a treat – price is less of an issue.  If you are a regukar however, it is a more sensitive point.  Price is important to customers as well as your p/l – so dont hide it.  Manage the communication with your customers and be transparent.
