Wonderfully Odd Waterford!

Last Sunday was a strange one for me.

It started early on Sunday morning, with me furiously trying to sew a rather old and tired Santa hat, on to the top of my helmet (cycling!). Now, I would never confess to be a dab hand at sewing and judging by the many, many Heath

Robinson repairs to socks, cycling bibs, even an old Scotland patch on my winter tights, I would never make the televised stages of the BBC’s Sew Bee programme!

Being the thrifty Scot I am, it is in my DNA to try and save something, prior to eventually having to toss it into the correctly coloured plastic receptacle.

Having somehow secured Santa’s hat, I then had to in some way attach a pair of Dame Edna Everage’s, Christmas themed, glasses to my actual cycling glasses.

What use is being made of our data?

Firms and Governments have been collecting data on people for many decades. Privacy campaigners fear how this data might be used and of how it might breach citizen’s rights to privacy. Others worry about ‘Big Brother’ with the Government spying on citizens.

Commercial enterprises tend to use collected data to understand their customers’ needs and seek to improve customer experience thus retaining their customers for longer.

With over 430,000 vehicles operating all over the world, Komatsu of Japan is one of the largest manufacturers of construction and mining equipment such as bulldozers, dump-trucks and forklifts. Since the early 1990’s their Komtrax tracking system has been tracking and recording where their machines are located and when they are working, idling or shut down.

Data from the USA shows machines seldom run on economy mode

Time to find out who has the “Biggest Cojones!”

At the time of writing this wee column, Monday 5th December, our Councillors had rejected the CEO’s proposed 2017 budget for Waterford Council. A budget which was presented to our 32 Councillors, at a plenary session, on Tuesday 29th

November. The basis of this overwhelming rejection, was due to the proposed Commercial Rates increase, to fill the now perennial black hole in the budget of around €1.3 million.

The meeting last week was watched by a “Packed” public gallery and press core. In reality, there were 5 members of the public in attendance. Only two stayed the course, for the three hour marathon meeting. In the end the members of the local press outnumbered the public by one! Not really a great turnout for such an important meeting and the

All I want for Christmas!

If you have not written your Santa letter by now, you will be no doubt be waking up, on the morning of Sunday 25th

December, with the possibility that the bundle of presents under the tree are either not appropriate or are completely useless for you. That is of course assuming that you have been good during 2016. You therefore have been omitted from the naughty list and are due a visit from Santa in the first place.

Assuming that the majority of us are on the nice list, then we will receive some wonderfully thoughtful presents. We will no doubt be filled with the joy that giving presents also brings. We often forget that giving presents and gifts are equally important, if not more important, than the gifts we receive and this is

Why Get Wealth Preservation Advice?

There is an old adage, irrespective of the wealth a family has built up, they will still go “from shirtsleeves to shirtsleeves in three generations”.

Despite the best intentions of the first-generation creators of wealth, many families have seen their assets – and living standards – fall quite dramatically as a result of common money management mistakes.There are numerous risks that could ruin your chances of keeping as much money within your family as possible. Some obvious, like hefty Inheritance Tax bills as a result of not maintaining a well-considered, up-to-date Will or not taking proper estate planning and succession advice.

However, divorce or family disputes over shared business interests are more dramatic and more common than you might think. Both are significant destroyers of wealth – as many families sadly know to their

Waterford Chamber representatives have met with Waterford City and County Council to voice concern regarding a potential increase in commercial rates for business in 2017.

Commenting on this possibility President of Waterford Chamber Laurent Borla said, “We are very concerned that there may be a decision made to increase commercial rates for 2017. Waterford Chamber believes this would not be a prudent decision for a number of reasons. Presently many of our members are telling us that they are experiencing only moderate growth and that consumer sentiment is still fragile. While a number of businesses are recruiting new staff and helping to tackle current unemployment levels, they are also coming under a number of business cost increasing measures. Many businesses are investing in building the future economy of Waterford, most for the first time in a decade, however operational costs are

The final curtain call

It is with a very heavy heart, that I heard on Sunday the 20th November, of the passing of Billy McCarthy, broadcaster on Deise AM, at WLR FM.

After a very short illness Billy passed away at University Hospital Waterford.

I first met Billy when I was appointed as CEO of Waterford Chamber and I have to say that there are very few people who you meet in this world, who you instantly take a shine to. There are even fewer people that you genuinely know would be there for you in a crisis, if called upon. Billy was one of those rare people.

He managed to come into your car, living room and kitchen when on the radio. His broadcasts were so personal, you almost felt like he was sitting right next to you and
