This month I would like you to take 15 minutes out of your daily routine to watch a video.
In this video, called “Secrets From the Science of Persuasion”, Robert Cialdini and Steve Martin, from Influence At Work have put together six universal principles (or shortcuts) and how they relate to collaboration. We all have to work in collaborative groups and with other people where there are often differing opinions. This video will help you in persuading others toward the validity of your advice and opinions. What are the hurdles you have to cross when trying to be collaborative? What successes have you had in bringing together different people in a collaborative effort? The video (and there’s a book too) offers many validated statistics to demonstrate the results of each shortcut.
So the next time you pull together a team of experts to better your business, keep in mind the different persuasive techniques and how to employ them to reach a perfect collaboration.
Watch the video below..
As you many of you already know, Paul Randall is one of company’s long term employees, with a lot of experience in the industry prior to joining us too. He is also one of a number of Creditinfo’s “evangelists”. He is often on the road in various parts of the world delivering presentations, webinars and spreading the good word about our company and its partners. Along with other members of the team, Paul is often personally requested and invited to participate in a number of meetings and events by external organisations worldwide to deliver presentations and share his knowledge, experience, thoughts and ideas on credit industry topics. Other organisations value our input!
Happy Spring Time
In such a diverse company, our employees believe in a number of religions and faiths. For the Christians within the team, we hope you enjoyed a “Happy Easter!” last weekend.
Although we may not all celebrate the same, at this time of year, Spring is on our doorstep for many of us and the first quarter of the year is over. Now is a time for new beginnings. new hopes and new joys. So additionally, we would like to wish each of you every happiness for those, along with continued prosperity and success over the next 9 months.
Reynir & Almar
On a business trip to Senegal, Reynir forgot to take his shoes. As it wont do to go to the Central Bank in sneakers, he asked one of the assistants at VoLo if she could help him out, giving her $50 to find him some shoes. Which she did! Reynir says these are his best shoes still, after almost 2 years. Here you can see Reynir putting on those shoes which he has taken to other important meetings worldwide.

In recognition of International Woman’s Day, and the important role women play in the day to day running of Creditinfo Malta, each female staff member was today presented with a rose, cake and wine.
Creditinfo Malta is proud that half of its workforce is female, as well as having three
female student interns on the team. Creditinfo Malta felt it was important to mark
this day with a small token of thanks to each.
Gunnar has a PhD in mathematics from Kaliforn- íuháskóla in Santa Barbara and an MA degree from the same school.

As you know, in January we told you about the developments of the CBS system designed for Latvia. So we thought you’d like to meet some of the team and if you have any questions about this or in general, you can contact them at email@example.com
Currently, the team is just 6 people:
Martin Paupers, Product Product and Process Development Manager (pictured far Left)
Janis TImermanis, CEO (2nd from left), Ligia Greiere, Customer Service Manager (2nd from right)
Intars Mikelsons, Sales & Business Development Manager (Far Right),
Brigita Mironova, Direct Sales Manager (not pictured) and Peteris Reiters, Customer Service (not pictured)
In the last 3 years, we have more than doubled our number of employees, through acquisitions, new start ups, new partnerships and our original offices growing in strength and requiring more staff to cope with the increased work load.
Many of our staff have been with the organisation more than 7 years, some well in excess of a decade. Not only do we have a loyal core team, we also have some very experienced and knowledgeable people.
