This eBook will help you Seize Your Sales Destiny, with or without a manager. Download Now My wife and I had no sooner sat down to dinner and the waitress was already standing at the edge of our table, ready to take our drink orders. That might seem like good service, but we literally hadn’t even placed the napkin on our laps. So, we ordered something to drink.The drinks were brought to our table immediately, and the waitress asked if she could take our orders. This is one of the funky, cool, independent restaurants we frequent, and since we always order the same thing, we gave the waitress our order. When the waitress left the table, we started talking about all of the stuff we have going on with kids, work, and other family stuff. We were catching up after not really having a chance to during our always hectic weeks.It might have been four minutes before the waitress was back with our food. She quickly and efficiently dropped the food on the table and asked if we needed anything else. Neither of us had our phones turned on. We didn’t have enough time to even begin to have a conversation, but now our dinner was sitting in front of us.The food was great and we took our time eating. As we were halfway through dinner, our waitress was back with our check, leaving it on the table and speeding off to clear the surrounding tables. She didn’t ask about dessert. She didn’t ask about coffee. She didn’t ask if we’d like to order anything else. We would have said “yes,” to almost anything she offered just to have the time to hang out and chat.I thought maybe it was our waitress, but I looked around and noticed that the entire staff was moving at this same pace. In fact, all the tables that had been full when we walked in had been turned, and there was no line of people waiting to be seated or served.Level 1 Value is a product. The value you create at Level 1 is efficiency. That’s great for transactional sales models, like McDonald’s. But it isn’t the right level of value for funky, cool, eclectic restaurants that are competing on experience, Level 2 Value. Experience isn’t about efficiency. Experience is about how you make people feel.If what you sell is experience, then efficiency isn’t the right area to focus. The right place to focus is feelings.last_img read more

Energy Minister says Sector Continues to Gain Attention from Investors

first_imgStory Highlights Speaking to JIS News at the sixth annual Office of Utilities Regulation (OUR) Director General’s stakeholders engagement breakfast, at The Jamaica Pegasus hotel on March 28, Mrs. Williams pointed out that the investments are for the long-term and will have far-reaching impact. “There has been no slowing down (from investors) in the energy sector. Investors have to take a long-term view and are putting in significant infrastructure and they are looking at a 15- to 20-year kind of investment,” she said. Science, Energy and Technology Minister, Hon. Fayval Williams, says the energy sector continues to gain attention from investors.Speaking to JIS News at the sixth annual Office of Utilities Regulation (OUR) Director General’s stakeholders engagement breakfast, at The Jamaica Pegasus hotel on March 28, Mrs. Williams pointed out that the investments are for the long-term and will have far-reaching impact.“There has been no slowing down (from investors) in the energy sector. Investors have to take a long-term view and are putting in significant infrastructure and they are looking at a 15- to 20-year kind of investment,” she said.Mrs. Williams added that investors are taking into consideration the demands that will exist within the energy sector, as well as the regulatory environment, when they invest.“Right now, we have a good regulatory environment in Jamaica. There is a lot of trust in the regulators, there is stability, and those are some of the factors that go into making investments, not necessarily the noise of the day,” she said.Meanwhile, the Minister emphasised the importance of the OUR, noting that the services “we enjoy today in an orderly way at prices many of us can afford, might not have been possible without a regulator”.“That independent arbiter ensures a level playing field among competitors,” she added.Mrs. Williams pointed out that as a Government and people, there are high expectations for existing utility operators.From the telecommunications companies, she expects there to be 100 per cent connectivity among Jamaicans.For the Jamaica Public Service Company (JPS), she expects the availability and affordability of the electricity supply, and for the National Water Commission (NWC), consistency and aggressive follow-up to the issue of no water in communities.“There is much to do. Our vision is not just influenced by our local experience. We are all taking what we see elsewhere because we have access to social media and we know what is happening in other parts,” she said.For his part, Director General of the OUR, Ansord Hewitt, said the vision for the utilities sector is one where they are always operational, reliable and predictable.Plans for the telecommunications sector have included a review of the existing state of affairs where access to critical services such as the ambulance, fire brigade and the police are consolidated into one platform, rather than fragmented.“We engaged consultants to do a study for us and we have had consultations with all stakeholders, and we looked at legislation we would need to put in place,” he said.“In the end, we put together a final set of recommendations, which we presented to the Prime Minister a few months ago. He was enthusiastic about it and has indicated that he will give the necessary instructions to the relevant Ministers to get it on track,” Mr. Hewitt added.It also includes plans to increase broadband Internet access across the island, to develop a single portal for all interaction with government, tax incentives for user equipment, the creation of sandboxes for innovators, and improving computer literacy.Plans for the electricity sector include the roll-out of additional smart meters to allow for better analysis and identification of losses for the JPS.For the National Water Commission, Mr. Hewitt said the entity, in 2018, tapped the private capital market for $15 billion without government guarantee, labelling the move a “good” development.Designed to be an open forum, the event was designed to update stakeholders from the utilities sector, private interests, government and academia on the work that is to be undertaken by the OUR. Science, Energy and Technology Minister, Hon. Fayval Williams, says the energy sector continues to gain attention from investors. last_img read more

Prison for NY developer in Buffalo Billion bid rigging case

first_imgNEW YORK — A Buffalo developer has been sentenced to 28 months in prison and ordered to pay a $500,000 fine in a bid-rigging scheme connected to Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s “Buffalo Billion” economic redevelopment program.Louis Ciminelli (sih’-mih-NEHL’-ee) was sentenced Monday in federal court for a pay-to-play conspiracy in which his firm won a development job worth a half billion dollars.Ciminelli and three others were convicted over the summer.

US stocks claw back some of their big losses oil slides

first_imgNEW YORK — U.S. stocks climbed Tuesday morning, putting at least a temporary halt to the steep market losses that circled the globe in prior days. Asian markets sank sharply earlier in the day, but European markets were mixed.The price of crude oil continued its sharp slide, and investors are waiting to hear from the Federal Reserve, which begins a two-day meeting on interest rates. Most economists expect it to raise short-term rates by another quarter of a percentage point, but investors hope that it will signal a slower pace of increases ahead.KEEPING SCORE: The S&P 500 was up 20 points, or 0.8 per cent, at 2,566, as of 10 a.m. Eastern time. The index had two steep losses of at least 1.9 per cent in the two prior days, and it closed Monday at its lowest since two Octobers ago.The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 248, or 1.1 per cent, to 23,841, and the Nasdaq composite gained 69, or 1 per cent, to 6,822.TAKING OFF: Boeing surged to one of the market’s biggest gains after it raised its dividend 20 per cent and increased its stock buyback program by $2 billion to $20 billion. Boeing’s stock has struggled recently on worries that the global trade war will hit its profits particularly hard.Boeing rose 4.4 per cent to $330.12.EARNINGS BOOST: Oracle jumped 3.4 per cent to $47.30 after reporting stronger profit for the latest quarter than analysts expected. Companies across the country have been doing similarly throughout this year, but investors have often given the better-than-expected performances less attention than their worries about slowing economic growth, higher interest rates and global trade tensions.FED MEETING: Most economists expect the Fed to raise its short-term interest rate to a range of 2.25 per cent to 2.5 per cent. The rate helps set borrowing costs for various types of loans, and higher rates can slow economic growth and make stocks look relatively less attractive.MARKETS OVERSEAS: In Europe, Germany’s DAX rose 0.3 per cent, while France’s CAC 40 dripped 0.3 per cent and the FTSE 100 in London dropped 0.6 per cent.Losses were more severe in Asia. The Nikkei 225 in Japan lost 1.8 per cent, the Hang Seng in Hong Kong dropped 1 per cent and South Korea’s Kospi slipped 0.4 per cent.COMMODITIES: The price of oil tumbled on worries about oversupply and softening growth in China, which could hit demand. Benchmark U.S. crude dropped $1.36 to $48.84 per barrel. On Monday it closed below $50 a barrel for the first time in 14 months. Brent crude, used to price international oils, gave up $1.15 to $58.46 per barrel.Gold dipped $1.50 to $1,250.30 per ounce.YIELDS: The yield on the 10-year Treasury dipped to 2.84 per cent from 2.85 per cent late Monday.CURRENCIES: The dollar dipped to 112.56 Japanese yen from 112.75 yen late Monday. The euro rose to $1.1373 from $1.1350, and the British pound rose to $1.2646 from $1.2629.Stan Choe, The Associated Presslast_img read more

Man Untd boss Probably football managers should be called more head
