I recently spoke at an event for Jaguar Land Rover (JLR, above), a shining example of a British based, world-class company. Recently it was announced JLR is to take on more than 1,000 production staff at a plant in the West Midlands.
I had no idea until I spent time with them how successful they are these days. It got me thinking – there actually IS so much good news in business and we RARELY get to hear about it.
Indeed, there are also many people choosing to help others less fortunate than themselves – through volunteering, charities and simple acts of kindness. We don’t hear enough about these either.
It is easy to blame the media, so that is what I will do.
Ten years ago BBC Radio 4 broadcast 80% of uplifting news, 20% negative and those figures are reversed today (@antjam60)
And, witness evidence presented to The Leveson Inquiry.
Actually, hang on – these days WE are the media, with our social media, blogs and email newsletters, and so it’s up to us:
To champion people who make a positive difference in the lives of others
To celebrate new entrepreneurs
To communicate good news about organisations who are a success, the world over
Please, talk, Tweet or Facebook about one of these today
With my love and best wishes to you all
