So, it’s been more than a month since my last post for Methodical (it’s even changed its name!) & as I sit down to write this entry, the self-discipline angel on my shoulder is politely reminding me to get on with it.

With the prevalence of IMs, WhatsApp & memes, being able to hold down witty conversation (a la Jane Austen) is becoming harder and harder to master, affecting your ability to find work, or just hold a conversation. This is where networking can help you.

Here, we will help you to set goals and targets, both personal and professional that you can identify, track and realise, without the pain of an existential crisis.Read More
