How fintech is redefining customer experience – and not just in the financial industry

Whether it’s applying for a loan, setting up a business account or making investments, we’re often faced with lengthy hold times, a deluge of forms to complete or confusing, non-intuitive web design.

Writing a novel: notes from a first timer

When I first started to write “Pundit” I had little idea about writing a novel. I had written plays previously and was somewhat familiar with the method of telling a big story (as opposed to a concise 5000-word short story), but I really had no clue what I was doing. I found out the hard way. I spent countless hours tucked away in the back corner of my flat, desk facing the wall (I had read Stephen King’s On Writing, after all) and carefully crafted what I considered exquisite scenes and stunni

Elaine Stritch: everybody rise

I crossed paths with the redoubtable Elaine Stritch several times over the decades, each time more memorable and poignant than the last. She had that certain “je ne sais quoi” quality about her. You wanted to be near her because she made the moment more intense, more vibrant and alive; and perhaps every so slightly off kilter. I was supposed to interview her. Sit across from her, face to face, and ask her questions. In the end, I wonder if I would have been able to do so.

Japan’s national sport, Sumo, is a traditional style of wrestling with roots reaching back to Shinto festivals during the Edō period (1603-1868).

But Japan's love of the sport can be traced back even further: traditional Japanese folklore tells us centuries-old tales of how the gods themselves would wrestle one

Use Storytelling to Create a Brand They Can’t Live Without

Whether huddled around a campfire, listening to ghost stories that chill us, or drifting off to sleep while imagining the look on Goldilocks’ face when she tastes that “just right” porridge, many of our earliest childhood memories center around storytelling. It’s hard to pin down when we began telling stories, but many experts believe storytelling predates written language. Storytelling is what defines us as a society; it’s how we pass along what’s essential from one group to another.
