Loco for cocoa: how chocolate can make you more productive
image

So this weekend marked the return of Easter, and aside from being a religious holiday it’s also the time of year when chocolate Easter eggs come out of hibernation to tempt the taste buds of children everywhere (and the occasional hankering adult’s too).

Wear a wristband, change your mood: could we benefit from wearable tech in the workplace?
image

In 1876, we got the telephone. In 1971, the first PC was born. In 2007, the IPhone began its world domination. And now, it seems the next phase of digital evolution is upon us – and it’s gone one step further.

No, we’re not talking about virtual or augmented reality (h

(Don’t) let them eat cake: should cake be banned in the workplace?
image

Earlier this week, many of us took out our frying pans, lemons and sugar to celebrate Pancake Day and practice our pancake-tossing skills (and hopefully not drop any on the floor, or worse, get them stuck to the ceiling). This annual ritual sees us collectively consu

Ancient knights and medieval money: why we shouldn’t give up on our brilliant ideas
image

To many of us, the idea of medieval knights of old conjures up images of a far-gone Golden Age where gracious courtly romance, sacred spiritual morality and gallant adventure ruled the day, and ancient wizards with long white beards dwelled beside bejewelled warrior kings.
