How To Survive In Business

As we tried to get our key cards to work in yet another soulless business hotel earlier this week, it struck researcher Louise and I that what recent graduates really need is a post-grad course on How To Survive in Business, i.e. the stuff they never teach you at Uni but you need to know to survive in the real business world.  We think the modules should include:

  • Effective use of hotel bedroom key cards (obviously)
  • Powerpoint 101
  • Photocopying for Beginners
  • Advanced use of SatNav
  • Transferring Phone Calls – beyond the call pickup button
  • Office Kitchen Etiquette
  • Business Travel: laptops are heavier than you think
  • Final exam case study: M&S Simply Food – saviour of motorway dining
