You have no chance in telecom in Switzerland.

Swiss telecom rates are extremely low and have superb customer service. I cannot imagine that anyone would like to switch....
...But I'm sure I'm not the only customer of Orange that is fed up with the poor customer service...

Re: I want to start a company and be extremely rich.....come join me.

I reckon most of you thing this is all for fun....but isn't it amazing how many useful competences are being offered in only 10 minutes?

Highly motivating.

Keep them coming and we will make history ourselves.

BTW: I was made redundant recently, so I am already highly motivated !!

We need a place where we can record and recycle all of this initial info. I'll try and find some freeware to start up a mind map we can access and contribute to online...

Which reminds me of......

Almost 7 years ago I started a web shop in Denmark. Even though I entered a market where there were more than 100 competitors all selling the same products I managed to differentiate and be successful because I did it my way. Same products as the otheres...but still different. Not necessary better pricing but better service and better over all customer experience.

The shop started as a part time thing while I continued doing my regular job, but when I sold the business before going to CH after 4 years, I earned about the same on the shop, as I did on my job as a mechanical engineer....but I only worked 3-4 hours a day on the business.

Hang on. If you already started your own business and you are now currently erm "gardening" then what chance have you got to get extremely rich this time round? Im sorry but if you want me as a chauffeur I will need minimum 5 years salary up front with the usual perks etc.

You must be joking about the telecom rates!!! Switzerland must be one of the most expensive in Europe for mobile calls...

Can I be the VP Marketing? I can talk the way I post here... and if I manage to convince people here that Swiss liquor stores have an orange M as their sign, I can for sure market your, er, "developments"...

Done that already

If we're all going to contribute and make something work, PM isn't the best option IMHO...

Add information management and communication to my job.
