Business is buzzing

Did you read that article in the JEP last Saturday in page 6? Heather Chalmers was talking to Bob Hogge, president of the “Jersey Beekeepers Society”. It was nice to hear that 2014 is going to be a wonderful honey crop, and despite the decline of Bees on the island, the beekeepers are looking at a

“Bee 2 Bee”

The Queen Bee is like a goddess: her entire life is committed to be in full service of the Hive and the colony.

“Bee Genuinely interested in your customers’ needs”

This week has been marked for me by 2 separate events which made me feel so under-valued as a customer that I wanted to remind you the incredible importance on how your employees’ actions and behavior can create an unforgettable experience or one you wish you never had. First, I was actually performing a Mystery

Bee Ready to start your own Mystery Shopping Programme!

Last week, one of my question was: Why, as a business, you should use Mystery Shopping to improve your Customer Experience? Well it is a very easy question to answer, because Mystery Shopping will give you an objective view of the service you and your employees provide to your customers. Mystery Shopping isn't about picking

The Value of our Bees…

Following the article in JEP on Thursday evening, I managed to speak to Bob Tompkins, who used to be one of Jersey biggest Commercial Honey producer but now enjoy Beekeeping for the pleasure of it.
