It might be a while since you heard that saying and perhaps even longer since it applied to our currency, but the BBC have published a great article online showing what a terrific performance the Pound is putting in against world currencies and an explanation as to why that is.

The question is of course, what does a strong Pound on the global stage do for the Future of Work in the UK? And does it have any impact at all on UK Businesses? 

I wonder what the CEO of Cisco (Phil Smith) will say about it with his world hat on?
