There are many empirical studies today that explain what makes a good business leader and what are the common attributes that give rise to a successful entrepreneur. Some would say that there should be a lot of risk-taking attitude in an entrepreneur for them to succeed. It is also important for the businessperson to have the drive to accumulate wealth and to have a desire to have an impact in the world. Sometimes, it’s also just the itch to achieve something and to hit an aim. Most business successes don’t have an aim, but they’re successful anyway, and that makes the study of what makes a businessman a bit more complicated.
In most authority articles online, we may find out that some of the things that form a good business leader are their courage to make a difference and their leadership skills. A good leader is able to command a large group of people, inspire them to do action and make them feel that their opinions are respected. These are things that usually don’t get noticed when one is training to become a businessperson, and these things, therefore, tend to be overlooked. However, it should be noted that for a business leader to succeed, a consideration of these factors should be a priority. You can visit quora

One should not rely too much on books, or what experts may call as noise. It’s always in the doing where everything is made clear and tangible.

Banco Bradesco may be changing their mission in 2018, according to some of the information coming out of the bank’s headquarters. Lázaro de Mello Brandão the patriarch of the bank is finally calling it quits after a long and successful banking career. Brandão gets a lot of credit for holding the bank together when founder Amador Aguiar passed in 1991. He has a reputation for being a capable as well as an honest banker, gave the bank the credibility to weather some of the political and economic storms that Brazil is famous for.
Brandão is also responsible for hiring Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi in 1969 when other bankers thought his resume wasn’t banking material. Mr. Brandão took a chance when Cappi was in the bank’s training program, and that chance is still paying off. Cappi is taking Brandão’s place as the bank’s chairman, and Octavio Lazari, another former bank office boy, will be the new president and CEO.
Cappi is 67 now, so he is too old to be the CEO because of the CEO age cap. But he is just getting started as the Chairman. And if he follows his predecessor, he’ll be making bank decisions for years to come. Trabuco Cappi is not the typical banker who relies on his finance education or his accounting prowess to lead the bank. Cappi has a quick mind, and he knows people, thanks to his degrees in Philosophy and psychology. He finished his degrees in University of Sao Paolo. Luiz and Lazari have a good working relationship, but Cappi has a good working relationship with all the members of his executive team. Lazari is the current executive vice-president of Seguros, the bank’s insurance arm. Cappi held that position from 2003 to 2009. The six other candidates for CEO gave Lazari serious competition, but in the end, Brandão and Cappi thought Lazari’s credentials and work ethic fit the bank’s mission.
Mr. Lazari started as an office boy in 1978, after graduating from the College of Economics and Administration of Osasco. He also majored in Financial Strategies and Marketing at Fundação Instituto de Administração. In 1998, Lazari was in the credit department. He was able to become a credit officer responsible for small, and medium-size companies. In 2010, he got the Department Officer title. He was in charge of the loans and financing. In 2012, he was on the board of the Executive Officers, and in 2017, Cappi gave Lazari the Seguros job.
Lazari will officially become the CEO at the March 12, 2018 shareholders meeting. Four of the candidates for the CEO position will be part of the bank’s Board of Directors. Those men are executive vice presidents Domingos Abreu, Alexandre Glüher, Josué Pancini, and Maurício Minas.
Investors expect Lazari and Cappi to stay on course and expand the bank’s digital footprint in Brazil. They also expect the bank stock to be one of best picks in 2018. But there are internal issues to address, according to Cappi. Bradesco has too many bank branches in certain parts of the country, thanks to the 2015 HSBC acquisition. And those branches could be a profit drain in 2018. It gives the bank the position as second largest bank in Brazil.

I came across the most interesting article on prison technology security. When I think about prisons, I typically think about what it takes to get people that commit crime into prisons. I never really thought about the technology it takes to keep prisoners inside the prison and, even more, to prevent crimes inside of prisons.
Securus Technologies, a prison technology company, recently released a press release that discussed how the company’s technology had helped prevent crimes inside of prison walls. Securus offers a huge variety of prison technology. The company offers everything from cell phone monitoring to technology that prevents contraband cell phones from connecting to illegal wireless services. A huge amount of damage can be done if a cell phone can connect to a wireless signal.
Among the testimonials were some that explained how monitored cell phone calls were able to be used. For example, a call was monitored between two brothers, one of which was an inmate. The inmate was attempting to coerce his brother to provide him with a fake alibi. Because the call was monitored, the prosecution was able to use it against the inmate to help secure a conviction. Cases like these are truly proof of how technology like Securus can be used in a greatly positive way.
Another great example came from a Sherriff’s Department. The testimonial shared how Securus’ Location Based Services helped them to find over $100 million in illegal drugs, firearms and stolen assets that had been stolen. An additional quote was just a simple testament to how the Location Based Services technology was a benefit to the prison.
I found this article fascinating. Not only is Securus Technologies preventing potential crimes inside prison walls, but actually solving crimes outside prison walls. It’s amazing to see how far technology has brought us.
Roberto Santiago is an innovative businessman, humanitarian, and entrepreneur who loves his native land of Brazil. Mr. Santiago was born in Joao Pessoa Joao which is the capital of Paraiba in Brazil. His love for his country began after he graduated from the Pio X-Marist College where he received a Master’s Degree and a Business Administration degree from the University Center of Joao Pessoa. He immediately founded a lucrative business that made paper and cardboard products in order to help his fellow countryman become employed and boost the economy of Brazil.
Roberto has a great business acumen and he continually thinks of business ideas to help Brazilians. As a result, Roberto Santiago purchased a piece of land in 1987 which is now the home of a multi-level shopping mall called The Manaira Mall. It took Santiago two years to complete the largest mall in Paraiba. Again, thinking about the Brazilian landscape and what he can do to improve his beautiful country, The Manaira Mall was designed with upscale shops and chef-inspired dining establishments.
Roberto Santiago enjoys inspiring and mentoring young Brazilian youths. Mr. Santiago talks to them about becoming entrepreneurs and owning their own businesses to further support the Brazilian economy. As a prominent business owner, Roberto Santiago established The College of Higher Education of Paraiba that is located within The Manaira Mall.
The local residents of Paraiba call the Manaira Mall, a city within a city. The Manaira Mall is beautifully landscaped with local artwork and regional symbols that emphasizes the history and future of Brazil. Additional attractions located within the Manaira Mall includes banks, chic bars and nightclubs, upscale restaurants, a food court, bowling alley, 3-D movies, and a large family gaming arena.
Mr. Santiago also placed a concert hall atop the mall’s rooftop. The concert hall is called The Domus Hall. Roberto designed Domus Hall to attract international entertainers to its stages that may not have considered performing in Brazil. The Domus Hall is also used for local celebratory events, like fairs, graduations, weddings, and many other types of cultural celebrations.
The Manaira Mall was not the only successful real estate venture for Roberto. He further developed the Mangeira Mall in Joao Pessoa which is a smaller mall than The Manaira. Both malls employ hundreds of Brazilians and are filled with family fun and entertainment. Roberto Santiago accomplished what he always intended, which was to increase the prominence of Brazil’s social and economic status.
Both enterprising malls have increased the value of the surrounding properties. The success of these real estate investments has inspired large companies and corporate investors to develop businesses or they have relocated to the Paraiba location. Mr. Santiago is not resting on his laurels. He intends to continue developing and growing industry businesses which will inspire tourism, sales, and leisure entertainment.
Just like the days leading up to the French revolution, we see the lower class grow in anger toward the upper class. The upper class, those who are corporate leaders and millionaires, are the recipients of much anger and hostility at this time. The lower class see the upper class as the cause of all of their woes. It is the upper classes taking our money. It is the upper class that is preventing us from coming up the latter. It is the upper class that is causing all of this evil.
I believe that there are many people in the upper class who are sinful human beings. I do not believe Sam Boraie is one of those people, however. Omar Boraie has been like a father to the city of New Brunswick, New Jersey. Everyone in that city loves this man for all that he has done.
According to New Jersey Stage, Omar Boraie has been able to turn around the city of New Brunswick, New Jersey. Omar Boraie spoke with the powerhouses that be in the city and develop a four-step plan to make New Brunswick a thriving city he knew it could be. He first wanted to start by making the place the kind of city that families wanted to call home. The second part of his plan he wanted to keep jobs in the local area. The third part of his plan he wanted to get a coalition together that would make New Brunswick their number one priority. The fourth, and last, part of his plan was to entice young professionals to set up shop in his area. For more details visit Bloomberg.
Omar Boraie enacted the first part of his four-step plan by reaching out to the State Theater with a proposal. He proposed that the theater would provide the space for him to show movies to the public. Seven movies in all were shown to families, and Omar Boraie covered all cost of admission. The last report said 7500 people were blessed. Check out Central Jersey Working Moms.
Omar Boraie enacted the second step of his four-part plan by convincing Johnson and Johnson to stay in the city.
Omar Boraie then enacted the third step of his four-part plan by reaching out to the movers and shakers of New Brunswick.
Lastly, Omar Boraie enacted the fourth step of his plan by donating $150 million of class a office space to the city of New Brunswick.
Running a site is not as simple as some people may think. Even if the site has all of the bells and whistles that make the site look aesthetically pleasing, running a profitable site has many different challenges that have to be overcome. Because the profits of any site are based on how high conversion rates rise, the owners and their representatives must be familiar with how to manage a site properly after it has been launched to the public. Fortunately, there is a lot of invaluable information on all of the latest marketing strategies that can be used. Some of the most notable and beneficial include the use of A/B testing, especially as this kind of testing relates to the incorporation of artificial intelligence. With this in mind, if business owners want to know if A/B testing is really one of the best ways to go today, here are some of its top benefits.
- Accurate and Reliable Data
Whenever a site is being tested for performance, there are several concerns that the site owner and their representatives should consider in advance. Because the tests must be reliable, the tests results must also be as accurate as possible. So, for those business owners who are concerned about using a test that will meet this requirement, A/B testing should be one of the top choices. This is because A/B testing scenarios are ideal for running testing simultaneous using the same audience on the site. Therefore, the time that each test is run can eliminate the possibilities of varying results because of different time zones etc.
- Makes Comparisons between current and suggested new marketing campaign
The marketing teams can compare the newly proposed marketing campaigns to the present campaign to see which one is better before investing any money or time. For instance, if the new campaign is better, the conversion rates will be significantly better than the current. Therefore, the decision to change from the old to the new marketing plan will be based on real data.
- Saves Time and Money
Another great benefit of using A/B testing is it saves time and money. This is because these tests are performed at the exact same time with the same technical resources. Therefore, these tests will not only save time in performing the test twice but also money too in having to pay for the testing resources more than one time.
