The Sunday Brief (May 11, 2014)
Welcome to this week’s Sunday Brief. The Sunday Brief is intended to share with you a few of my top picks from the previous week. As I always say, sit back and relax with your favourite cup of Joe and enjoy! (If you have a fav that is not on the list, be sure to let me know).
1.Top Pick of the Week: Over 100 B2B Content Marketing Statistics for 2014
Thanks to Lee Odden (@leeodden) for this one. He has not only reminded us of the fantastic report done by Content Marketing Institute and MarketingProfs, but he provided highlights. You get a good overview of what is working for most marketers and what isn’t.
This is an awesome read and I highly recommend it.
2. Most presentations aren’t bullet proof by Seth Godin
This is an interesting and quick read. Seth points out that we really abuse bullet points and quite frankly don’t know how to use them properly. He has a point. Pun in intended!
3. Bring Back Our Girls by Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka
This one is definitely not like the others in this list, but it is in part inspired by this being Mothers’ Day. I find it unconscionable the actions of these men. I find it difficult to believe that in 2014 we continue to have these conversations. The absolute worst however, is that these actions continue to happen. I have written about women’s rights a few times and while I don’t consider myself a feminist – I also abhor labels – I cannot, as a human being, ignore inhuman actions.
Regardless of your age, sex, race or religion, human beings deserve to be treated with dignity and equality. Ignorance and hatred never result in positive results.
Thank you for taking the time for reading The Sunday Brief, if you have comments or suggestions for other great posts from the past week, do comment!
