26 Apr

GEDI – an index assessing entrepreneurship and development around the world – places the UK in 14th place and behind many Scandinavian countries.

Groupe Intellex – writing business futures

25 Apr

GI Logo

Welcome to the Groupe Intellex blog.

Our projects include Networking, the Environment and New Media but what binds these together – and gets us out of bed in the morning – is the scope for innovation.

We live to make a difference – and our writing has that single-minded focus.

We are in the business of communicating fresh perspectives – and this new site will provide you, dear reader, with an opportunity to respond to our publications.

The Groupe Intellex portfolio has, for many years, provided popular downloads but never any online opportunity to question or debate our perspectives.

We will also be delighted to host correspondents on any of our themes – provided, of course, that they live up to the standards implied in our title – Groupe with ‘e’ for that predominantly European perspective and Intellex with an ‘x’ for that hint of technological enthusiasm – but above all we are about innovation and making a difference.

So welcome to our blogsite and let the fun begin.
