Vol.1 March 2012

Team and Leadership Excellence Newsletter 

Welcome to the first monthly newsletter.

The site was launched on the 11th of January and we have had 4346 hits so far. The highest number of visits were on the 26th of March 2012 where we had 332 hits. This is the day I published the blog post and article linked to the future marketers conference and it showed the level of interest the future marketers had to take the post conference learning’s as well.
This newsletter is designed to highlight the happenings during the month and to give a preview of the upcoming month. Since this newsletter is associated with my website and since the website was launched in January, the March newsletter will cover news from January to March 2012.
This is designed to help you have sight of what had gone on during the month so that you can pick up on anything you might have missed. To facilitate this I will list relevant information with links that will help you to access them with ease. I would also like to hear from you any feedback you may have on the contents as well as anything new you might want me to do. I will do my best to respond.
