An observation by Gellan Watt, 24th May 2010.

I’ve become a big fan of HSBC. They’ve been publishing a business reference called ‘100 Thoughts’ in the Sunday Times. Sunday’s was the last of four editions, with some really great information. Well done HSBC.

One of the thoughts that really caught my eye was by Lord Digby Jones, who was the 76th contributor. He said the following:

“There are four words companies need to compete: Quality, Value-add, Innovation and Brand. Everything comes back to these four words, but you can’t crack it unless you have skilled people.”

I couldn’t agree more. I highly recommend trying to get your hands on these booklets – they’re fantastic. Well done HSBC. You can follow this campaign on Twitter @100thoughts.
