Firms including HSBC, Deloitte, Google, KMPG, BlackBerry, AXA, Coutts, Intel and Lloyds TSB are offering a package of £1,500 to every start-up that participates. Cameron will pledge his full support for the scheme and ask the public to consider starting a business themselves. The initiative founded by StartUp Britain is an entirely private sector led campaign to boost economic growth. The government will not be contributing any funds towards the scheme. Cameron is expected to say: “We won’t build the future we want to see in this country if we go back to the bad old days of big government spending, big borrowing and big debt. The recovery we need is a private sector-led recovery.” A spokesperson for the Department of Business said that the government is already supporting entrepreneurs through measures introduced in last week’s Budget. The start-up package being offered by City firms includes: • AXA will offer 10 per cent off business insurance. • BlackBerry will offer 1,000 free start-up guides.• Microsoft will train 5,000 start-ups in how to use technology to drive their business and marketing activities, including free technology resources worth up to £400 per company. • Google will provide a limited amount of free advertising.• O2 will offer one month’s free line rental. • PayPal will offer three months free fees for new accounts when signing up to a Powa.com website. • Fujitsu is offering a 30-day free trial and 10 per cent off the annual costs of its cloud computing services. • McKinsey & Co is launching a scheme to encourage innovative graduates to start up their own business. Campaign supporter and entrepreneur Doug Richard told City A.M. the scheme was important because: “Banks and big businesses must work with the government to inspire young businesses and give them a fighting chance to grow.” whatsapp Tags: NULLlast_img read more

In the spotlight – Owen Farrell

first_imgFor Back Issues Contact John Denton Services at 01733-385-170 visit “When you’re kicking you have to be like that – to be focused on the job,” he says. “Most people get nervous before matches but once you get out there you just have to focus on what you’ve got to do. It’s a mixture of being composed and knowing your job while at the same time being competitive. It’s something the team does really well.“We’re a very aggressive team, but we know our jobs and work hard for each other at the same time. I like to get stuck in and playing at ten it’s about getting the balance right between doing that and stepping back and doing what the team needs. I love everything about rugby – it’s all I’ve ever known. I’ve always played rugby, be it league when I was younger or union now. It’s a brilliant game to play and I enjoy every minute.”He could be enjoying life on the international stage soon too. He may want to play down his England chances, but his feats on the field are doing anything but. It’s now a question of when, not if, he wins his first cap for England.This article appeared in the January 2012 issue of Rugby World Magazine.

She obviously knew what she was letting herself in for when she married Andy Farrell, the former Great Britain rugby league star and eight-time England centre in the union code. But with son Owen now the bright young thing of English rugby, talk of the oval ball can become tiresome.“I still live at home so I talk to my dad a lot,” says Owen Farrell, 20. “We watch every game on TV, too, and my mum gets fed up with us constantly talking about rugby. She always comes to watch us play and loves it, but at times she wants to talk about something else.”Unfortunately for Colleen, family conversations look likely to be dominated by rugby for some time to come as Owen’s career continues to move to higher levels. When injuries saw a teenage Farrell parachuted into the Saracens No 10 shirt last year, little was expected, but he took to top-flight rugby like Pat Sharp to Bushtucker Trials in I’m A Celebrity… The goalkicking responsibility didn’t phase him and he excelled throughout the season, his boot providing 17 points in the 22-18 Aviva Premiership final win over Leicester.He has continued in much the same vein this season, even if he’s more often playing in the centre, with new signing Charlie Hodgson lining up at fly-half. Farrell insists that he doesn’t mind where he plays and is just enjoying the chance to learn from his more experienced team-mates.“I got an opportunity last season because of injury and I had to learn quickly,” he says. “Having great players around you and good coaches helps you through it. Wherever I fit in to contribute to the team, I’m concentrating on playing well. I’m still learning and looking at what I need to improve and work on. I learn from playing in the Premiership and I learn off the players around me too.“It’s great being involved in this team and playing with these players. I talk to players at the club like Charlie Hodgson, Brad Barritt and Neil de Kock about rugby all the time. It’s great to play inside and outside players like that. Charlie’s a fantastic player and he’s got a wealth of experience, so to tap into that is brilliant for me.”Farrell is a confident person and has no qualms about asking for advice, saying: “I’ve always been interested in asking questions.” He’s not quite so keen on answering questions about his prospective rise into the England team. The clamour for him to be included in his country’s RBS 6 Nations squad has been growing in recent months but the man himself won’t be drawn on the topic.Proud moment: Owen Farrell with dad Andy at Twickenham“I’m just going to try to keep getting better as a player and do my best to contribute to this Saracens team,” says Farrell. “I’m just going to focus on the match ahead and contributing to that. I’m going to keep working hard, keep improving as a player and playing for Saracens, and if anything comes from that it will be a bonus.“I’m the kind of person who likes to live in the now. I try to be the best I can be today and tomorrow I’ll be the best I can be then.”The best he is right now, with his combination of accurate goalkicking, fluid passing, strong running and hard tackling, is good enough to play for England. So while he is doing his upmost to avoid the hype, he seems destined to follow in his father’s footsteps sooner rather than later – and should, in fact, enjoy more success in the union code. Dad Andy made his rugby league debut for Great Britain aged 18 and was the youngest-ever captain of the side three years later, but he didn’t have the same flourishing career when he crossed codes as a player, though he has impressed as a coach for Saracens.If Farrell junior, who insists it’s not a problem working with his dad every day as it’s all he’s ever known in a professional rugby environment, does make the step up to Test level this season, he’s sure to approach it in the same cool and collected manner with which he deals with crucial kicks at goal. He often looks like the calmest person in the stadium as he lines up a penalty and it’s that mentality that has impressed so many observers.last_img read more

Australian media picks up on agency offer to pay return flights for British street fundraisers

first_img A face-to-face fundraising agency working in Australia and New Zealand has defended its practice of paying return flights to experienced British fundraisers as the Australian media renews interest in street fundraising.Cornucopia offers to pay up to AUS$1,500 (£830) return air fare for fundraisers, who must commit to work for six months and recruit an average of three “good quality, ongoing regular supporters”. However, the offer is only open to people who have made plans to travel to Australia or those already in the country.Speaking exclusively to UK Fundraising, Cornucopia’s sales manager Lauren James said the agency had regularly employed ‘backpackers’ and overseas travellers as fundraisers since the early 2000’s, most of whom had worked as street fundraisers in the UK.“For experienced face to face fundraisers, regardless of where in the world they’ve travelled from, Cornucopia offers the chance to work with a charity focused agency offering great opportunities,” James said.“We are heavily involved in recruiting Australians to become F2F fundraisers; however, we have found that the job has been particularly suitable for experienced fundraisers from the UK, Ireland and Canada who are at a stage in their lives where the nomadic lifestyle appeals.”James said many of the early Cornucopia employees, some of whom were sponsored by the agency, now worked in leading fundraising positions in Australian charities and in some cases had set up their own F2F agencies.Although Cornucopia say the ‘free flight’ promotion is just one of “many recruitment opportunities it offers” and has been in place for the past nine months, the story has only recently been jumped upon by the Australian media, even making the Australian section of the Daily Mail’s website.  37 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Tagged with: face-to-face media F2F acts as ‘lightning rod’ in Australian mediaPaul Tavatgis of Whipbird Consulting – who is working with the Fundraising Institute of Australia to co-ordinate a sectoral response to the media’s interest in F2F – told UK Fundraising there had been a recent in increase in media attention on fundraising.[quote align=”right” color=”#999999″]Recent stories focusing on ‘free flights’ have been picked up with more interest than usual by the Australian media[/quote]“Any issue relating to charity usually seems to refocus on fundraising, and the very public nature of F2F means that it often acts as a ‘lightning conductor’ for this attention. As a result we have seen a lot more stories about F2F in the last twelve months than previously.“Recent stories focusing on ‘free flights’ have been picked up with more interest than usual by the Australian media. This has come as a bit of a surprise, given that the subject matter on the face of it, is not really that controversial. It is perhaps another way of getting the “Did you realise these people are paid!” angle into a new story.”Tavatgis said the issues in Australia were similar to those that the UK F2F sector has had to deal with charities reticent to defend F2F in public. “Until we develop a more coherent, sector-wide strategy for F2F as a whole, not just for media response, it will be very difficult to respond effectively to these stories, which now seem to appear on a regular basis,” he said.“Our challenge is to learn from our colleagues in the UK and from New Zealand, and develop a structure that will support the long-term credibility and sustainability of F2F in Australia.” Advertisement Australian media picks up on agency offer to pay return flights for British street fundraisers Howard Lake | 25 June 2014 | News About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Journalist allowed to go back to work after more than four months of banishment

first_img Radio reporter gunned on city street in central Somalia RSF_en Organisation News March 2, 2021 Find out more RSF requests urgent adoption of moratorium on arrests of journalists News SomaliaAfrica SomaliaAfrica Follow the news on Somalia January 8, 2021 Find out morecenter_img to go further News Help by sharing this information Receive email alerts February 24, 2021 Find out more The head of security in the Middle Shabelle region, who is also the brother of local chief Mohamed Omar Habeb, gave his permission for journalist Abdiqani Sheik Mohamed to go back to work yesterday, the Somali Journalists Network (Sojon), a local press freedom group, announced to Reporters Without Borders. Mohamed, who used to work for privately-owned Radio Banadir, had been living in precarious circumstances in internal exile in Mogadishu since a decree issued on 27 September 2004 banned him from “practising his trade.” The local authorities had threatened him with reprisals if he did not comply.———————-24.11.2004 – New premier asked to intercede in case of journalist banned by clan chiefReporters Without Borders today wrote to Somalia’s new prime minister, Ali Mohamed Geedi, asking him to ensure that radio reporter Abdiqani Sheik Mohamed is allowed to return and work in the Middle Shabelle region where local authorities physically attacked him and then banned him in September.The organisation explained in its letter that it already wrote to the leading clan chief in Middle Shabelle, Mohamed Omar Habeb, also known as “Mohamed Dhere,” but got no reply. Prime Minister Geedi heads a transitional government that is temporarily based in the Kenyan capital of Nairobi.”Aware of the authority you enjoy with Mr. Habeb, Reporters Without Borders would like to ask you to do everything in your power to ensure that Mohamed is allowed to return to Jowhar and resume working safely, and do so unconditionally,” the letter to Geedi said.According to sources in Mogadishu, Mohamed recently received a conciliatory offer from the Jowhar authorities under which he would be allowed to return and work, but only if he signed an official request for amnesty. “However, in our view, Mohamed has not committed any wrong requiring an amnesty,” Reporters Without Borders said in its letter to Geedi.Mohamed’s problems began when he reported on 26 September on Radio Banadir, one of the radio stations he works for, that the elders of the Jowhar community had asked the committee running one of the city’s mosques to resign in favour a new committee that had their approval and that of the local authorities.After the report was broadcast, Mohamed was stopped and beaten by Mohamed Dhere’s militiamen on the main road in Jowhar. The next day, Dhere’s spokesman issued a decree saying that Mohamed was “no longer recognized,” that he was henceforth “forbidden” to practice his profession and that the Middle Shabelle authorities would consider themselves “attacked” if he failed to comply. Since then, Mohamed has taken refuge in Mogadishu.It so happens that Mohamed Dhere is very close to the new prime minister and they both belong to the same sub-clan. Dhere agreed to resign as a member of parliament so that Geedi could take his place and thereby be elected to the post of prime minister.
