Four simple ways to earn the trust of others

bbc.com — "Trust me." The phrase is used so frequently it has become almost meaningless. Of course, everyone wants trust. Companies want you to trust them.

Surprising revelations from Davos

bbc.com — Is anything really that surprising anymore - especially at the carefully-planned World Economic Forum gathering in Davos? Perhaps it's that Davos even continues to exist. Or that the sparks of ideas in small groups get lost when dispersed to wider audiences. Or that Africa, the topic of the moment in 2014 at Davos, is much more muted this year.

What’s your app - Davos edition

bbc.com — There is little that remains secret about many of the world's most powerful business leaders, politicians and public figures. Social media and constant news coverage has thrown back the curtain on everything from what they say, to what they eat. But there is one thing that could illuminate what Davos attendees truly believe and value...
