Thirty seconds is not a long time within which to communicate your message. None-the-less, these Canadian 'champions of change' provide stimulating food for thought as they respond to a variety of business questions and issues in only 30 seconds!
The Financial Post, together with the firm of Ernst & Young provide us access to many interesting insights and perspectives through the "30-Second Mentor" series. Before viewing some of the video clips, take a few moments to think about how you would respond to the types of questions addressed in the series. In fact, why not add your comments to this POST and let our audience know your thoughts on the following questions that we thought were interesting:
How would you respond to some of the questions:
- How are you prepared for the next downturn?
- What is the scariest part about being an entrepreneur?
- Who is the better hire? Under 30 or over 50?
- If your business plan isn't current, why not?
- How do you handle rude, aggressive customers?
These "Mentors" offer their insights, which at the very least provide us with the opportunity to consider these questions in more detail, and how we can apply creative solutions to the challenges faced in business today.
