Campbell aiming to kick on

first_img The Magpies have made striking reinforcements a priority this summer, and it has emerged that they are in a battle with Everton to snap up Arouna Kone with both clubs having triggered a release clause in the Ivorian’s contract. However, 18-year-old Academy graduate Campbell is hoping for his chance. The home-grown striker told the club’s official website: “I’ve never dreamt of being here this quickly, so it’s all happened very fast for me. But I’m loving it at the moment and hopefully I can kick on next year and really get myself into the team properly and show what I can do.” Adam Campbell is determined not to be Newcastle’s forgotten man as Alan Pardew attempts to re-shape his front line. Press Associationcenter_img Campbell added: “I’ve got a little taste for it now and obviously the gaffer helped me out last season. He was very kind to me and gave me a chance. But next season I’m going to do everything I can to make sure that I get in his team regularly and get a lot more time on the pitch.” Campbell became the club’s youngest European debutant when he lined up against Greek side Atromitos last season, and made three Barclays Premier League appearances before heading off on international duty with England Under-19s. North Shields-born Campbell and most of his team-mates will be back in training by Friday with some of the club’s senior internationals having been given an extended break because of commitments with their respective countries at the end of the last campaign. Pardew will hope his squad is boosted significantly in number before hostilities begin next month with Steve Harper, Danny Simpson and James Perch having all left the club. Kone is a genuine target, but former Wigan boss Roberto Martinez’s presence at Goodison Park could give Everton the advantage in that race, while Aston Villa’s £8million asking price for Bent is unlikely to prompt owner Mike Ashley to get out his chequebook just yet. New director of football Joe Kinnear has drawn up a plan of attack after consulting Pardew and chief scout Graham Carr, and it remains to be seen how effective he is in implementing that. Newcastle have tied up the futures of a series of young players with goalkeepers Jak Alnwick and Jonathan Mitchell, defender Paul Dummett, midfielders Conor Newton and Michael Richardson and striker Alex Gilliead having signed new contracts. In addition, they have announced the capture of 16-year-old French midfielder Olivier Kemen from Metz. last_img read more

Richards predicts great things

first_imgMicah Richards is predicting great things ahead for free-scoring Manchester City as the relentless march of Manuel Pellegrini’s men continues in all four competitions. It would be a brave man to bet against City breaking the 100 goals mark against Cardiff, and Richards, 25, is convinced the club are on track for glory but admits it is a difficult job for the manager to keep all the players happy. He said: “I just hope we stay together and grow as a squad and try and keep everyone happy because it’s hard when everyone is not playing every week. “If we can keep this squad together, we will do great things. “A massive thanks to Sheikh Mansour for changing everything and for coming in and investing in the squad. It’s good times and every player wants to be here because this is the club to be at this moment in time. “Hopefully we can keep going in this direction.” City continued their hot streak with a 5-0 demolition of Blackburn in the FA Cup, the 11th time this season they have scored four goals or more in a match. Richards admitted that the contrast with that barren run in 2007 made the current streak all the better. He added: “That was under Stuart Pearce. We didn’t score for something like five months here. It was ridiculous. How times have changed. “You savour these good times all the more because of back then. For me, every day, I come in and I see the players I’m playing with and you compare them to the players I was playing with seven years ago and they’re all internationals now. It’s a different kettle of fish.” Jovetic will find his work cut out to force his way into the team with Aguero, Alvaro Negredo and Edin Dzeko scoring almost at will, but Richards has seen flashes of quality in the Montenegrin to suggest he can make an impact. He said: “It’s going to be hard for him to get into this team, but I’m sure he will be working hard and doing everything he can. “I’ve trained with him. I think if you saw him in the AC Milan game pre-season, I know it was only pre-season, but it was against good opposition and he ripped them to shreds with his movement, skill and touch. “But I think the strikers have got everything. Sergio has pace and power. Edin is a good finisher and good in the air. Negredo runs around like a man possessed and is a great finisher. Jovetic has skill and technique. “They’ve all got something, some sort of gift to bring to the team and it just seems to be clicking at the moment. “If we want to win the league, if we want to win trophies, they are going to be key. “Last season it was more about defenders doing well. I think this season it is more about the attackers and that’s why we look so good.” Richards, however, is refusing to get carried away by talk of an unprecedented quadruple. He said: “We don’t want to get too excited. We want to be in every competition and I think with the squad we have, we should be in every competition. “This is the second-string team apparently and we’ve won 5-0. I don’t think there are any weaknesses in the team. I think that’s the most important thing and if we can keep that going until the end of the season we’ll be all right.” City have scored a remarkable 99 goals so far this season, in all competitions, a stark contrast to Richards’ early days at the club where in 2007 under Stuart Pearce they failed to score in their last eight league games of the season at home. Even more worrying for their rivals, the expensively assembled squad now has Sergio Aguero back from a calf injury and Montenegro striker Stevan Jovetic also pushing for a place ahead of Cardiff’s visit on Saturday.

Youth Day: lessons from 1976

first_img13 June 2011Young South Africans say they will be celebrating this year’s Youth Day by standing up and confronting the challenges they face – just like their compatriots did in 1976.Youth Day is a public holiday celebrated in South Africa every year on 16 June and pays tribute to the hundreds of students who lost their lives during the 1976 uprisings in Soweto.Taelo Mokoena from Houghton, Johannesburg, said there are great lessons to learn from the students of the 1976 uprisings. He said although today’s youngsters are not fighting for the same things, they are also facing challenges that they need to liberate themselves from, such as unemployment, poverty and crime.“We need to come out of a mindset where we as youth wait for the government to do things for us. We need to liberate ourselves from our circumstances and take up opportunities that are available to us and build a better future for ourselves.”Mokoena said the biggest lesson young people of today should learn from those in 1976 is the courage to fight for change. “We should always celebrate June 16 because the courage of the youth then proved to us that it is possible for young people to bring change in our country.”‘It didn’t come easy’“Unemployment and HIV/Aids are the two major struggles the youth today are faced with,” said Dikeledi Madau from Rustenburg, North West. “We must use the example set by the students of 1976 to inspire our youth to dedicate themselves to being empowered and fighting HIV/Aids, in the same way the youth of 1976 dedicated their lives to defeat apartheid.”Madau said young South Africans remain a central part of the country’s success. “For this country to grow and develop, the youth need to be empowered. The development of the youth is central to the transformation of this country and the enhancement of the lives of all South Africans.“We need to always keep the awareness; we can never allow that kind of oppression to exist again in our country,” said Thato Sibeko from Port Elizabeth in the Eastern Cape.“Our country has come far in achieving the growth our youth enjoy today – we need to protect that because it didn’t come easy. We need to keep the knowledge of our history conscious in our youth, to encourage them to be daring and face their challenges and succeed.”Sibeko said the day should be used to take stock of the progress the country and its youngsters have made. “We should use this time to celebrate the strides we have made since that day. We should also take this time to reboot and gear up to continue to empower young people.”“Our student heroes of 1976 were fighting to change the political situation of this country back then. I strive to change the socio-economic environmental of our country today,” said Thabiso Tladi from Pinetown in KwaZulu-Natal.“By educating myself and helping other young people also get an education I am fighting for change. I am fighting to see all young South Africans realise the benefits of the uprising.”Tladi offers career guidance to high school students in his community and helps them apply for bursaries and scholarships, and secure a place at tertiary institutions.“We all now have equal opportunities to study and pursue our dream careers and live a better life. The challenge now is to assist young people with information and resources to realise that dream, and reap the rewards that the youth of 1976 fought and died for.”First published by MediaClubSouthAfrica.com – get free high-resolution photos and professional feature articles from Brand South Africa’s media service.last_img read more

How to Measure Productivity in Sales

first_imgA lot of people mistake being busy for being productive. Crossing to-dos off a list may, in fact, mean you’re productive, but as it pertains to sales, it may mean that you are incredibly unproductive.There are only two activities that prove that you are productive when it comes to selling. The first measurement of productivity is the opportunities created. The second measurement of your productivity is how many of those opportunities you win (caution here, winning one big deal may mean you are not productive, and winning many small deals may also mean that you are not doing well).The time you spend at work is no indication of productivity. Neither is the number of dials you make per hour or day. The number of face-to-face sales calls or ear-to-ear sales calls or video face to video face sales calls are also no measurement of productivity. They are activity, and not all activity produces the right outcomes. You can have meetings in which nothing is accomplished. They may even be necessary, but that does not mean that any initiative was advanced. The last thing on earth you can measure that might be mistaken for productivity is email, something that is necessary and that almost invariably reduces your productivity.All of the above activities are only proof that you are productive if and when you obtain the primary outcome that those activities are designed to generate. While it’s necessary that you dial the phone and schedule appointments the outcome is a new opportunity being created. And while it’s important to have sales meetings, it is possible to have meetings that do not result in the next step for you or a prospective client. It’s also possible to have meetings in which an opportunity is not advanced from one stage to the next.Productivity is the measurement of the outcomes you create divided by the time and energy you invest in those outcomes. Time and energy invested in activities that do not produce an outcome do not mean that you were productive. This is true even when the non-productive activities are necessary.Think of it this way, if you could generate the outcomes of creating and winning opportunities without doing any of the other activities that are necessary but not sufficient to produc those outcomes, would that be enough for you to reach your goal? If the answer is yes, then you should focus your time and energy on producing those outcomes. Essential Reading!
