January 2011 Archives
There were signs in the final few months of 2010 the deals market was hotting up again.
While most players in the market felt 2011 would see that pick up continuing there was always a nervousness about whether the recovery was really under way (possibly not if the latest GDP stats are looked at).
But there have already been a string of interesting transactions in January.
Once again this is a blog post sparked off by some of the great discussion over in the Business7 and Insider group on Linkedin.
Mary-Jo Devlin's topic on 'Would you do business with individual who has no photo on their LinkedIn profile?' has sparked more than 30 responses.
And it is something of a mixed bag from outright no and yes to musings on the power of looking attractive.
One reply suggested being on a social network without a photo was like leaving your date of birth out of a cv as the omission immediately makes people suspicious.
