Not only would any accidents surely weigh heavily on your conscience – you are after all responsible for the wellbeing of your staff – but they would also be incredibly bad for business.

The stage performance of Billy Elliot (the musical) we took in recently was more than just a dazzling display of first-rate entertainment and a hyper-politicized ode to coal and labour unions. It was also a poignant reminder of one of the reasons I am raising my girls to be generalists.
Both my daughters, who hope one day to be entertainers themselves were mesmerized by the singing and dancing. Both of them saw themselves on the stage. Continue reading
