With companies (and individuals) looking to be at the forefront of what we need to move forward – are we actually using and making benefit of the companies that can enlighten, not just your company but your staff and yourself too?
The reason I have asked this and written this article, is due to the fact we are always learning and sometimes we can be late to the party with what we learn….
That is why I am sharing with you the untapped resource that is Bloomberg and how this company can help you further. Bloomberg to many is just a source of financial information or news but the majority of people are not realising that it can be the forefront provider of News and Technology to your business.
When we wake up in the morning (and I am talking here from the UK), we have the ability to listen to and/or watch Bloomberg sharing the latest business news from 06.00 hrs GMT to 11.00 hrs GMT.
These five hours provide an excellent coverage of the breaking business news along with technology news and updates as well as some fascinating interviews of some of top Business Leaders and Influencers.
Do they have a presence?
Yes they have a great presence with:-
06.00 hrs – 08.00 GMT “Countdown” with Anna Edwards, Mark Barton and Manus Cranny
08.00 hrs – 09.00 GMT “On The Move” with Jonathan Ferro
09.00 hrs – 11.00 hrs GMT “The Pulse” with Francine Lacqua and Guy Johnson
Also, throughout this five hour period, you have:-
Jonathan Ferro who is providing updates on Company Business News and movements on the stock markets
Caroline Hyde – like Jonathan – provides the latest Company Business but with more of a focus on but stories behind the news from these compnies as well as sharing the latest news regarding Technology
Hans Nichols reporting from Germany give the latest news from Companies and Stock Markets across Europe
Caroline Connan is reporting on all topics from across France
Elliott Gotkine also pops up with news on Technology and Company news from Israel too
Is there a reason for highlighting these people and Bloomberg TV?
Yes there is a reason and it is that many of us, when we wake up, we put on BBC Breakfast, Good Morning Britain or Sky News. Yes, these do cover some business and technology news, but they are not as in-depth, up to date or forward thinking like Bloomberg.
Then, when we arrive at work, we tend to have in our reception areas and/or in our service centres, televisions running with the live feeds from BBC News or Sky News, which actually are just providing the same news on a loop or updating the news stories from what you saw at breakfast. Sometimes they will come out with breaking news but the majority of the time it is all the same news.
If you were to have Bloomberg TV, you would be upto speed as to what is happening with business and technology and give yourself a leading edge over your competitors. This small change is something that can really make an impact to business as they are always ahead.
Now if you are really wanting to get ahead, you can leave Bloomberg TV running all and benefit from two extra shows that will certainly boost you even further – Market Makers and Bloomberg West.
After 11.00 hrs GMT, Bloomberg TV switches over to America and broadcasts news relating to companies based in the US. The reason for suggesting that you stick with Bloomberg TV is that Market Makers – 15.00 hrs GMT to 17.00 hrs GMT have great interviews with companies that have a technology foundation. These interviews will tell you about the latest technology that is happening and in the majority of cases, is news that can be weeks even months ahead of the news channels and programmes like BBC News, Sky News, BBC Click etc etc. So with Stephanie Ruhle and Erik Schatzker, you have Market Makers delivering you the latest technology insights that could be more help for you in laying the foundations for the future growth of your company.
The final point, I would say that could really benefit you, is a programme that is totally focused around Technology and the businesses that are Technology Companies. This show is on from 18.00 hrs to 19.00 hrs GMT and is Bloomberg West hosted by Emily Chang and Cory Johnson. This show is definitely ground breaking for you as it is keeps you really upto date with the breaking news but also the background into the stories that have happened or are breaking.
So I hope this gives you an insight as to why you need to change your channel on your television in your reception or service centres or better still – put a television in your reception area tomorrow and start getting a head of your competitors by being a head of the game….
Well, if there is just one thing that would make this a perfect addition to your business – and this is just my opinion – is if we could could have a total UK and Europe based version of this channel that continued after 11.00 hrs GMT….but we would still get the names from the US and Silicon Valley giving us the latest news and insider track before it was really announced?
Of course we would!
After we are the UK and that is why Bloomberg have their European base here in London…..
