One-minute phone box: 0181 914 9394

Check out some of the responses to last month's phone box on page 27.

This month, let us have your views on the following:

1. To what extent has your business been affected by skills shortages and what needs to be done to avert this problem in the first place? Have you trained employees only to lose them to other employers?

2. What do you think are the main pitfalls when negotiating mergers?

3. Have you ever employed a private investigator in the course of running your business? If so, what were your experiences?

4. Is there any other subject which you would like to read about in Management Today?

As before, call our voicemail, giving us your contact details, the appropriate question number and a brief summary of your views. All calls are treated in confidence and charged at normal rates.

If you have strong views on anything that has already been published in Management Today, please write to us at the address on our letters page, fax us on 0171 413 4138 or contact us by e-mail at
