5.  We Want Your Views!

Over the coming weeks we will be launching "Content 2.0" on the Applied Corporate Governance website, inviting you to contribute opinions, articles and comments on a range of governance and managment related issues. All material published will have full accreditation and you will be able to put a link back to your website or social network page. All we ask is that you only submit original content that is not published elsewhere on the internet or republished from someone else and that you have full rights to what you post.

We hope that this will become a major part of the site and look forward to encouraging debate both here and on our new social network pages. More announcements to come...


6. And Finally...LinkedIn and Facebook Pages Launched!

To increase our exposure and our message to businesses, governmental and non-governmental communities and the wider public, we have recently launched LinkedIn and Facebook pages. Through this initiative we hope to increase our level of interaction with you, our loyal subscribers, and the wider communities. Above all we want to listen, so please visit your site of preference (Google+ coming soon) and share your views on corporate governance, poverty and corruption reduction or any other related issues.
