* The border between Ireland and Northern Ireland

The USA Market offers every Brand an opportunity for success however it can reveal itself as a difficult market if you refuse to learn how it works.
We will share what we have been abe to do with Brands to help them grow sales in the USA in less than 4 hours.
As Fashion Brands were fed up to go there unprepared and therefore losing thousands of dollars, they have asked GFM how we could help. We came up several years ago with the "#USAWorkshop" which delivers to your Team and yourself what you need to know before you go.
You will learn the mistakes that other brands have made and there is much more to say than what this blog post can ever take!
Indian Brands have the talent and experience from manufacturing, design, creativity to sales and distribution.

2. we do not have the processes 

3. we do not deliver consistently

and 

4. we lack a coach, mentor or sounding board.

How to face the loneliness in Leadership?

The loneliness of leadership When we speak of "leadership" most people unsurprisingly think of CEOship.
The reality is that although CEOs are certainly leaders, there are other leaders in the organisation apart from the CEO.
Every person who has the responsibility for other people, is a leader of those people, regardless of where in the organisation they find themselves.

The CEO is the leader of the entire organisation, but the field supervisors, for example, are responsible for, and the leaders of, the people and functions under their control. A leader is frequently very lonely in the role - not because they don't have people to talk to, but because they can't say certain things to certain people.
