Creative Industries Knowledge Transfer Network announce the ‘Leap Day Business Challenge’ as part of Social Media Week

Gibbon by Jon Kime

Use your leap day to review your business model!

The Creative Industries Knowledge Transfer Network (CI KTN) today challenged UK businesses to use February 29th to review their business model. The ‘Leap Day Business Challenge’ will be launched at the CI KTN’s event - The DNA of a Company: How social media is impacting business models.

“We’re extremely excited about the potential this challenge could unleash,” says Mel Norman, Theme Champion for Business Models and Growth at the CI KTN. “It’s aimed at company owners and CEOs who are running successful businesses, but who would like to stay ahead of the curve to secure their future. It’s sometimes hard when you’re focused on the day-to-day running of your company, to make time to review the way you’re doing business but in light of current technology disruptions, it could really add value.”

Review of the Year: Pick Your Highlight #highlight2011

About this time last year we asked you if you could pick your most significant thing of 2010 what would it be?

We got some great results, from facebook reaching half a billion users to the one and only SXSW and one of my personal favs, the use of the word 'hacktivist' in a Daily Mail headline about WikiLeaks.

2011 has been a year full of ups and down, from the launch of the ipad 2 in March to the very sad loss of the Apple icon Steve Jobs in October. There has been technology failures, the BlackBerry network went down and left millions moving over to the i phone and you can't forget the PlayStation network hack in April.

Google+ took on Facebook and you can now ask your phone if you are going to need to take a umbrella to work thanks to the development of voice control.
