Tips for Buying Cardboard Boxes in London

Tips for Buying Cardboard Boxes in London

Expanding Your Skillset With ITIL

Expanding Your Skillset With ITIL

We’ve all attended work-related training schemes. ITIL certification for office workers, offshore survival training for rig workers, or licensing training for hospitality staff; it doesn’t matter the industry or job, there will always been relevant training to attend. Often offsite and without fail always at the most inconvenient time, traditional training schemes are the bull in the china shop of workplace schedules and logistics.

There is one glimmer in the darkness of training to be thankful for; due to an increase in technological capabilities, real world training is dying out. Online training has been on a quiet but effective revolution of the training world for several years now, particularly in the areas of IT and business management.

The Benefits of Moving ITIL Certification and Other Training Online

 

David’s point on the technological advancement is a good one, and with far more reach than we might realise. Take Prince2 Training as an example. The business world has reached a point where it’s possible to drive a full business idea from concept to fruition from the small devices each and every one of us carries around in our pockets. Where before a course had to be researched, developed, tested, accredited, and distributed in physical forms, now these steps can all be achieved electronically, with the course then hosted online. The benefits of this are considerable:

 

Lower material cost – Rather than use physical materials to complete the course, employees will use electronic devices already in place in the office. This cuts down on the amount of physical copies that need to be produced by the provider, reducing their costs and therefore the costs of the company hiring them to provide the training course.

 

 

Ease of access – No longer will the battle for the conference room with Mary from HR dominate the work e-mail chain. Where before the training would be limited to a physical location, now it can be carried out anywhere. This removes the logistics of booking rooms for training or finding the appropriate time; now all employees can train in their own time, at their own space, in any location.

 

Reduction in wasted man hours – Previously, employees would have to take large amounts of time out of their working day to attend training. Traveling to a location, getting set up, the course itself, then returning back to work – these all take time out of the working day. Now, it’s possible to attend training without even leaving the desk, cutting out a large amount of wasted time.

How PMP Certification and Other Training Helps a Business

 

Many people write off training as a waste of time, usually with an argument along the lines of “It won’t teach anything that they don’t already know” or “It’s all just jargon anyway”. While there may be a grain of truth for the smallest proportion of both employees and courses respectively here, as a whole this is incorrect. Training such as ITIL certification ingrains certain techniques and knowledge in an individual so as to become second nature to them. This is the real purpose, to allow an employee to make confident, knowledge based decisions in far less time, saving the company money and increasing efficiency.

 

 

From an employees end, training is also beneficial. They gain a new array of skills that can often be applied across a multitude of situations. They also feel more valued as the company has invested money into their training; this, in turn, will boost morale and make for a more productive staff member. The final point is that clients are often more willing to take advice and direction off an individual who is trained in the relevant areas, giving your employee more pull in business situations.

 

A business overlooks staff training at their peril. Trained staff are happy and efficient staff, resulting in a more profitable company. Look into training today, be it PMP certification or any other form, to gain an edge over competitors.

SEO Glasgow And It’s Role In Business

When it comes to the main means of gathering information and discovering new and interesting businesses, most of us (if not all of us) turn to the omnipotent, potentially self-aware behemoth that is Google.

Orla Kiely – Mugs, Bags, and Other Designs

Orla Kiely – Mugs, Bags, and Other Designs

Ireland has given up many great writers and artists over the years. Oscar Wilde, Yeats and Alice Maher are just some of the household names gifted to us by our Irish cousins. Seated comfortably alongside these is Orla Kiely, a fashion designer from Dublin.

Kiely qualified as a textile designer while at the National College of Art and Design in Dublin before moving the New York to work for a fabric and wallpaper designer. From there she successfully applied for a position at Espirit, moving to London to work. While working she studied for her Master’s degree at the Royal College of Art. Initially a hat designer, Kiely has gone on to design a range of different items. Her patterns are seen as contemporary classics, with many printers and designers such as MS Mugs using her patterns on their products.

Fashion Design

In her exit show at the RCA, Kiely displayed a thesis range of hats which were then purchased by Harrods. Kiely then went on to work for several large companies to gather experience before setting up her own design company. Initially Kiely designed hats but changed to bags when her father noted that while not everyone was wearing a hat, everyone had a handbag. In the late ‘90s, she decided to try laminating cloth for handbags, a textile technique reserved at the time almost solely for tablecloths.

Queen of Prints

Described by the Guardian as the “Queen of Prints”, Kiely’s patterns can be seen across a range of objects, including stationary, wallpaper, furniture, and even cars (the Citroen DS3 which won both Top Gear’s “Small Car of the Year” and “Car of the Year” of 2010). Kiely’s motifs, notably pears and stems, reflect retro design but take a fresh, modern approach to colour and application.

In particular Kiely’s patterns feature regularly on table and kitchenware. Orla Kiely mugs, plates, tablecloths and white goods have all been major sellers for printers and designers. While Kiely focusses more on her fashion design, such is the unique quality that her style possesses that the royalty work alone means her name is never far from the lips of those looking for patterns.

Polly Smith of McLaggan Smith mugs says of Orla Kiely:

“MS Mugs are delighted to have Orla Kiely on our team of mug designers! Orla is well-known British designer and has moved on to design handbags, kitchenware and cars and of course mugs…Retro Orla Kiely mugs are extremely fashionable and will make a great addition to your home’s stylish décor.”

Awards and Recognition

Kiely deservedly has been recognised as one of the top designers currently producing work. In July 2010, she was one of six contemporaries – including Louise Kennedy, Philip Treacy, Paul Costelloe, John Rocha and Lainey Keogh –  featured on a set of An Post stamps. Kiely’s stamp represented her through the use of an image of a handbag with her distinctive leaf pattern set against a white background with large orange letters at the top of the stamp to spell out her name. Continuing with Irish awards, Kiely was also the Irish Tatler Woman of the Year.

Kiely’s fashion line also attracts the attention of many celebrities, including Alexa Chung, contributing editor for Vogue. The Duchess of Cambridge and Kirsten Dunst are also known to sport fashion designed by Orla Kiely.
