Cattle ranchers in Brazil sacrificing some of their calves to develop a new industry

Brazil would not be the first place that you might consider for a safari but in July this year, I had the fantastic experience of spending time with a jaguar research team in the southern Pantanal region.   Their project was called “Onçafari” and the team was researching how to preserve the natural habitat of the jaguars but habituate them to vehicles, so that jaguars could become “star animals” for stimulating the growth of ecotourism in Brazil.

A Nightmare Sailing Charter in Cuba

Cuban waters in the starless night, with faulty navigation equipment

It was to be a night sail as we left later than anticipated and we set off in the late afternoon after a hearty meal cooked by Kim.
There was a cold front and the sea was choppy but I had been in a lot worse and I was not at all concerned. The weather was warm and it started as a pleasant sail . . .

Working together to become more executive-focused

Cass Business School has asked WCoMC to work with them to help change some of the focus of the school to become ‘more executive-focused’ by involving us in informal debate and development.  This will better use a combination of  the wide experiences of WCoMC members and the high-quality research output of Cass.

Get Connected!

When the guilds, then livery companies, were set up in the Middle Ages their primary aim was to manage what were effectively closed shops as well as training apprentices and looking after members who had fallen on hard times. When re-invented by the Victorians, the original reason was pushed gently to one side and thus the livery is now largely focused on educational and charitable activities.
