We are taking on the Corporate Sky Tower Challenge on August 1st to raise funds for Leukaemia and Blood Cancer. ‘Potentia Say No to Led Zeppelin’ team members are Sharon Jones, Livvy Bruce, Nathan Bryant-Taukiri, Ian Scott and Aksana Rusakova who will climb the 1103 stairs on behalf of Potentia, which is no easy challenge. However, it is nothing in comparison to what individuals with Leukaemia and Blood cancer are challenged with.

Shadow a Leader for a day On Tuesday, we took part in the AUT follower a leader day where two students shadowed our MD, Josh Comrie.

8 ways to help your productivity at work by Livvy

ProductivityWith the multitudes of distractions we face, notifications buzzing on your phone, pinging emails and high-pitched laughter from the latest office prank flowing across the open planned office, it's sometimes hard to imagine how one does focus, be productive and get any work done.

When I say 'be productive', I mean it in terms of how efficient you are at getting work done. For example, writing this blog post while attempting to defrost my fingers by clutching my coffee is a challenge in itself, let alone colleagues scootering around my desk, and 'Happy' by Pharrell Williams blasting (for the third time), to my bosses phone quacking (yes quacking) - it's all rather distracting and causes me to lose my train of thought.

Danger - redundancy aheadIt’s that moment in your career that you probably dread happening. “We’re having a company announcement on Tuesday at 10am, can everyone please make themselves available in the boardroom at this time.

Or it could see you become bitter and potentially an unemployable proposition.

We're proud to help educate and inspire today's youth about future options in the ICT Industry. We recently upgraded our sponsorship of ICT-Connect to Premier status; one of only three top level sponsors. We believe this clearly demonstrates our commitment to the industry.
