The art of giving
A basic tenet of the psychology of relationships is called the 'principle of reciprocity'. This principle defines the human need and tendency to want to give something back when something is received. This need is strongest when the gift is given without expectation of return. Could this be a key to success in life and business?

Vee Roberts is a multi-award winning brand and marketing coach. A mother to four children aged two to 21, she is also dedicated to serving and empowering business owners to develop credible, consistent brands, using online and offline strategies.
Running more than one business, both as the director of insight2Marketing and founder of inspireUrBiz networking events, Vee regularly shares her knowledge on marketing, branding and social media as a guest speaker and trainer.
Redundancy in late 2010 led Vee to take a leap of faith; becoming self-employed, she started her own business. Working on contracts within local government and bigger public agencies proved to be something she really enjoyed. But, still, something was missing. She wasn't free to do as she pleased.
Vee decided to become her own boss working by her own rules. It was a risk she was prepared to take, fed up of the office politics and bureaucracy. With less than £100, she successfully set up her own business from scratch, using her own knowledge of affordable marketing solutions to make it happen. She was able to grow her business brand online and offline successfully. She now uses her 19+ years of planning and hands-on experience to make it happen for other business owners too.

Andrew went on to complete a Masterâs degree at UCL and won several awards/accolades within the facilities management industry for his contribution to the sector at a young age. Today, Andrew's core interests lay in continuing to build a high staff engagement based business.
