We may be unashamedly biased as this is our local stamping ground, but Peregian Beach Village is a 'must visit'.
Tucked between Coolum and Noosa (and nowhere near as busy as either), Peregian Beach typifies the perfect Australian Beach: endless white sand, sand dunes and surf.
Building restrictions mean you can barely see a building from the beach and it's easy to forget suburbia is really only across the road...
She is the one that has loved you since the beginning. She held you through long nights, consoled your broken heart, made you laugh, and has listened to all of your stories. Your mum is one of the most important women in your life - if not the most important!
There are very few things in this world that are black and white - technology is no different. For all of the wonderful things about today’s digital age, there are just as many reasons to reminisce about how things used to be before smart phones and internet pervaded nearly every aspect of our lives. One of the biggest things people miss is the person-to-person, face-to-face interaction that was mandatory before we were let off the hook by emails, messages, and texts.
There’s no way around it. No matter how great your business is and how spectacular your customer service is, you will come face-to-face with those difficult customers. These people, no matter what you do, will seemingly never be satisfied. They are notorious for being quick to argue, complaining frequently, and, sometimes, just looking for a way to get under your skin.
Use these five smart strategies to help you cope with your next difficult interaction.
China is one of Australia’s largest trade markets, which means that many Australian companies work closely with Chinese clients. As with all cross-cultural interactions, gift-giving is one that needs to be navigated well. Even the best intended gestures can be misinterpreted if cultural etiquette isn’t considered beforehand.
The global economy, marked by the doctrine of survival of the fittest, is becoming increasingly competitive.
This is affected by advances in technology, intense competition, nature of partnerships in business, and employee and customer handling and management.
Within this business environment, gift giving has evolved to be an important aspect of the successful running of a business. It represents the pleasure of giving, and the feeling of accomplishment and thrill of the receiver.
While it is traditional to choose December as the month of gift giving, corporate gift giving can be done throughout the year.
Imagine a community where everyone farmed, baked, brewed, and cultivated, a picturesque coastline neighborhood filled with freshness, where every bite, every sip, was elevated by the fact that it was created responsibly, sustainably, and by someone who really cares. For most people, the provenance of their food is an afterthought, if even a thought at all. Convenience, price and speed rules all, allowing large corporations to take over what used to be a beautiful relationship between land, people and the communities they lived in.
Did you know your co-workers and managers might be judging you by how tidy or messy your workspace is? According a recent study by Adecco, most workers use tidiness as a factor in how they view colleagues. And it’s no surprise, because, as it turns out, organisation and an uncluttered workspace help you work better and boost productivity and efficiency!
Are you passionate about sustainable purchasing, green alternatives, and eco-friendly gifts?
It can be frustrating trying to be friendly to the environment at gift-giving time.
So often, thoughtless gifts end up in a landfill or aren’t made with sustainable practices or regard for eco-friendly principles. Fortunately, you can still let those you care about
know you are thinking of them while also thinking about the environment.
