Chch censors veto naked calendar pictures

Posted on by

first_imgChrist Church’s naked charity calendar had to be hastily re-shot this week after the college censors deemed some photographs inappropriate.The verdict on the calendar was delivered a few days before it was due to go to print, meaning three photos had to be retaken.The calendar had been sent to the censors for approval a week before it was due to go to print and at an arranged meeting it was decided that certain photographs were inappropriate.Organisers were told squashed bottoms were too erotic and the cover photo featuring a couple in Tom Quad had to be retaken with the pair standing up. The censors also told organisers that nudity should be a secondary feature in the photographs.One student involved in the project pointed out that not everybody in the original photographs was able to make the retakes, meaning the calendar now has “a lot fewer people.” The student also commented that it was a shame as “people gave up their personal time” to the project and perhaps as a result of “bad experiences wouldn’t want to buy it.”The student maintained this year’s photos were not “more explicit” than last year’s and that the censors had been “interfering”, especially considering organisers had “put thought into making it tasteful.”The censors are expected to protect the image of the college. One fourth year Christ Church student thought that they had gone too far this year commenting, “I am outraged by the college’s act of pure despotic censorship of what can only perceived to be a work of art.”Christ Church JCR President Evelyn Ashton-Griffiths remarked, “It was a shame that a couple of the photos were not approved, but the decision was taken to re-shoot these. All of the photos have been well received by the students at Christ Church, including the new ones. The outcome has been, I think, really positive despite the problems we faced.”The censors were invited to comment, but have yet to respond.Ashton-Griffiths added, “The naked calendar is supposed to be fun, and the decision to retake the photos as opposed to cause further tension seemed to be the best option therefore.”Another student involved in the project said the calendar is “still very good” and in fact “better than last year” despite these setbacks.This year’s naked calendar for RAG follows Christ Church’s successful calendar last year. Ashton-Griffiths says she hopes the calendar will be “just as successful this year” and that all the photographs are “witty, artistic and creative”.The calendar will go on sale in seventh week and proceeds will go towards charities GUA Africa and Breast Cancer Research.last_img read more

How to build your human capital

Posted on by

first_imgIt’s Back – The War On Talent!  The challenge to find and build a great team.  Unemployment is reaching new lows, and for now this economy is rockin’. While that is good news, it means for those of us in leadership positions, finding, developing and retaining top talent can be tough. And when finding, developing and retaining top talent is tough, succession planning can be damn near impossible.  At a time when we have a record number of baby boomer leaders leaving and retiring from the workforce, we are woefully short on experienced leaders to take their place.In the past, succession planning was something that was nice for a company to have, a bonus for those organizations that could afford the extra training and development. But today, if you are not growing your own talent, if you are not developing your next level leaders, then you are going to find yourself on the losing end of the War on Talent!Understand in this economy the only thing that is differentiating you from your competition is the level of talent you have working for you. Think about it, there is not one single product or service you offer that your competitors don’t already offer, couldn’t offer or won’t offer.And in an economy where customers can buy products or services anywhere, any time and from any body it’s the service, the experience that your customer’s are looking for, that is what they are willing to pay for. And controlling the customer experience, and building your reputation is one-hundred percent dependent on the level of talent you have in your organization.Now here is the good new, as the leader, owner or person-in-charge you are in control of the talent you have in your organization, and the depth of succession planning you have in place. All you have to do is make it happen. Wanting a succession plan and actually building one are definitely not the same things. Here are five innovative succession-planning strategies to get you started:5 Strategies For Innovative Succession PlanningOwn it – Make it your job, as the leader,  to develop talent and create a succession plan.  All too often talent development and succession planning are delegated to the role of human resources or middle management. While both of those departments need to be involved, if you want Succession Planning to happen in your business than you need to make it your priority. Take ownership, and understand that what you place value on in your organization is what will happen.Know What You Need – When it comes to talent and Succession Planning you need to know what and who you need. You don’t just need to fill positions, you need to fill positions with people who are the right fit and bring the right value to your organization. Before you start your succession plan you need to take inventory – what talent do you have, what do you need, what new talent would add value? Graph It – The most important part of succession planning is about ensuring you promote and develop the right people.  And to develop the right people you need to define what “the right” person is for your business. Jack Welch – the legendary leader of General Electric – used to use a powerful graph to determine who the right people are. On the left side of the graph Jack (yes I am going to call him Jack) he lists values. The values for his company, and  also what he wants in his leaders. On top of the graph he puts the production, meaning the level to which they help the company achieve their goals.  The A;s – share the values and are productive; The B’s are productive but lack the values; C’s share your values but struggle to produce; and D’s well you have to wonder what you are doing employing them at all.   Graphing your employees ensures you are building your succession plan with those team members who share your values and are productive. This is key for ensuring your succession plan is promoting the right leaders.Develop it – Once you know who you are going develop, you need to actually develop them. Meaning you have to invest in finding out what skills they need, and then provide the training to ensure they get them.  This will take time, money and resources so you need to be prepared to invest. Seems risky right? What will it cost? What is they leave? Remember, if you commit to a strong talent develop and succession plan, no matter who stays or goes in your organization you will always get back more than you invest.Own It – Last but not least, you again have to again Own It. A succession plan is not something that you start and stop, it is a ongoing process. An ongoing process that you have to own! As the leader, the one who is placing value on this process, your team needs to see you engaged, involved and actively participating. If they believe it matters to you, it will matter to them.In today’s marketplace, there is no better investment of your time and energy then talent development and succession planning. If are looking for an innovative way to stand out from your competition, then invest in these five strategies to build your succession plan. 21SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Meridith Elliott Powell Named One Of The Top 15 Business Growth Experts To Watch, Meridith Elliott Powell, is a leadership and sales expert, who helps her clients learn the strategies they need to … Web: https://www.meridithelliottpowell.com Detailslast_img read more
