Light English mizzle, neither mist nor drizzle, is softening the neo-classical colonnade and turning the two wizened cork oak trees planted by the 2nd Duke in the 18th century into looming giants. Two suited doormen welcome me into the grand salon of the hall, and I feel as if I am stepping into an alternative England — one in which the aristocracy has adapted and thrived, astutely marketing its perks and pleasures to all. This stately home is a home — and also a successful business. It is even warm. He does not allow the business to stand still for a moment.

So there was opportunity, but there was a matter of logistics. Both students and companies have limited time for recruitment.
The company has developed modern, mobile technology to streamline the electronic data capture of documents used in clinical trials. Non-STEM majors represented at the event included art, theatre, psychology and communication. Is there a place for liberal arts students in STEM companies?

Two organizations with different strengths and markets can often collaborate in a way that combines their skills and develops new opportunities. When Mercedes Benz set out to create a radically different town car they did not choose to work with another car manufacturer or engineering company — they partnered with a fashion watch maker, Swatch.
Mercedes had the engineering skills. Swatch was outstanding at fashion and design. Each company brought differing skills and experiences to the team. How can you find the ideal company with whom to partner? The rational and scientific way is to list your skills, strengths and weaknesses and then to list the complementary skills and strengths that you want in a partner if you are to attack a chosen market or business opportunity.
Then you try to identify a partner who offers what you want. Many companies who want to expand overseas use this method to find locally based distribution partners. However, there is another approach which relies on a random connection or fortuitous chance.

Get it wrong and you may as well walk out there and then. Get it right and there are several more obstacles to hurdle.
