OA’s picks: A part of my job is to understand what goes on, to understand what can be done, what works and what doesn’t. As such I spend several hours every week surfing the web, reading newspapers and magazines, attending seminars and networking events. This page is about what I see and find interesting in relations to investments, business and business development.
