Swiss SMEs Preparing For New Wave Of Globalization
The economists at Credit Suisse have surveyed nearly 1,800 small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) about their views on selected megatrends for the fourth time. Compared with last year, the outlook regarding three megatrends – globalization, changing values and demographics – has become much gloomier.

An Arc of Growth from Asia to Africa
Rarely has Africa been in the news so much. Or so it seems. As football fever has gripped much of the world - including the financial markets - it has also allowed a greater focus on what is happening on the ground across much of Africa. The immediate issue is: will the tournament be a success? Although the initial focus is on the hope for safe and successful tournament in sporting terms, one should not overlook the economic implications. Once the players, officials, fans and media have gone, what will be the lasting on-the-ground effect on South Africa and on the rest of the continent? Most countries that host major sporting ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

I definately like what I do every day as a marketing communications manager and graphic designer. I am happy with the company I work for --seeing as I turned down 3 other companys' offers since joining JSH. I am a "creative" professional in a very "business" minded world and it can be hard to adjust and balance creativity with business bottom lines. I have gained a lot of experience over the years learning this balance. I have been in marketing and design for over 17 years and couldn't imagine doing anything else!
