Happy 1st Anniversary to PM Noble Consultancy Services!
In Part One, we shared world events which were happening during the first six months of the business. So now, continuing along the same line with the help of Wikipedia:
The family of soul music singer Marvin Gaye wins a $7.3 million lawsuit for copyright infringement against Robin Thicke, Pharrell Williams, and T.I. stating that their hit ‘Blurred Lines’ sounded like Gaye’s ‘Got to Give It up.’ Rolling Stone
It is announced that the daughter of the Duke of Cambridge and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, has been named Charlotte Elizabeth Diana, named after her grandfather, grandmother, and great grandmother. (News Limited)
A robot kills a man, who was a contractor, at a Volkswagen production plant in Baunatal, Germany, which is about 100 kilometers (62 miles) south of Frankfurt, Germany. Spokesman Heiko Hillwig said the 22-year-old victim was part of a team that was setting up the robot when it grabbed and crushed him against a metal plate. The death was preliminarily attributed to human error, rather than any issue with the robot itself; prosecutors are contemplating whether to charge anybody. (MSN)
On Wednesday 17 June nine people were shot dead during a bible study group at the historic Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal church. (The Guardian)
Bobbi Kristina Brown, age 22, daughter of American entertainer Whitney Houston and heiress to the Houston estate, dies approximately 6 months after having been put in a medically induced coma since being found face-down in a bathtub in her Roswell, Georgia home near Atlanta on January 31, 2015.

Barack Obama is the first US president to speak in front of the African Union (AU). He encourages the world to strengthen economic ties with the continent, but also criticises the lack of democracy. (WSJ)
In a previous blog about work-life balance and I mentioned that faith is important to helping with that work-life balance, so I thank the Lord that He has enabled me to do what I do, and celebrate a year in business. I will be looking at Faith in Business in a future blog; addressing whether it is a taboo subject and who are the main players in the Christians in business sector?
Now, I don’t want to start gushing like Gwyneth, but I do think that it’s right to acknowledge the support that I have had from family, friends and organisations – Livability Enterprise and Enterprise Enfield. I also appreciate my clients, past and present for their belief in PM Noble Consultancy Services and the work we carry out for them.
Special thanks to Geoff Folkes and Kyri Photiou for their support and thanks to my fellow hub users -InterAction Group at the LetsGo! Business Hub.
It’s been an interesting and enlightening year, I look forward to many more!
