The buzz: “Early to bed and early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise.” (Benjamin Franklin)

Watch out!

The experts speak.                        

Michael Maniccia, Deloitte: “We’d like to help you learn to help yourself. Look around you, all you see are sympathetic eyes.” (Paul Simon, “Mrs. Robinson”, Bookends album by Simon and Garfunkel)

Dr. Paul Tunnah, pharmaphorum: “Risk comes from not knowing what you’re doing.” (Warren Buffett)

Petra Streng, SAP: “In the real world there is no nature vs. nurture argument, only an infinitely complex and moment-by-moment interaction between genetic and environmental effects.” (Dr. Gabor Maté)
