Recovery is based on the Ministry of the inspection report, says Helsingin Sanomat. The reason for the recovery is that state subsidies have been used for purposes other than those originally granted. According to Helsingin Sanomat, the recovery targets are for the 2014 general allowance and special allowances granted to the development of coaching skills dating back to 2013. According to the report, among other things, the Sochi Olympics Olympic Committee had a hotel room, and leased them to the show for our guests. The Olympic Committee had also acquired the Nordic Business Forum, a hundred tickets, with a value of EUR 30 000.

Dojo Madness has raised $4.5 million to launch LOLSumo, a real-time coach that helps League of Legends gamers improve their esports skills.Berlin-based Dojo Madness wants to exploit machine learning to help provide actionable analytics and other tips for esports fans.The round was led by March Capital Partners, with the Investment Bank of Berlin IBB , and existing investors London Venture Partners and DN Capital.The company has has created a set of tools that harness the power of the latest innovations in machine learning to help gamers improve their skills.Dojo Madness  first product, LOLSumo is a real-time coach for League of Legends.The app has been downloaded more than 500,000 times since its launch last September, and the app delivers insights for 70,000 daily active users.LoLSumo suggests the best build and provides users with hints and tips specific to that champion as well as his or her chosen mastery/summoner spell combinations.For instance in the attached screenshot, you will see a hint specific to the champion Jhin which outlines his Deadly Flourish ability.After each game LoLSumo provides the user with a performance badge based on global averages vs his or her current rank and highlights specific performance metrics from within the game.Creep Score, Kill/Death/Assist Ratio, Wards placed, Damage Dealt to Champions and Gold Per Minute are some example metrics.The new funding round will be used to expand Dojo s coaching apps to other esports titles, as well as to expand into new data services in esports.
Berlin-based eSports startup Dojo Madness is on a mission to help gamers level up.It does this via a mobile app, initially targeting League of Legends, that essentially turns your phone into an eSports coach, offering tips on strategy before and during gameplay, and analysis afterwards based on data culled from your in-game performance.To further develop its eSports coaching technology, which Dojo Madness co-founder and CEO Jens Hilgers tells me utilises machine learning coupled with huge amounts of in-play data, the company has raised a $4.5M in Series A funding.The round was led by March Capital Partners, with Investment Bank of Berlin IBB and existing investors, London Venture Partners and DN Capital, also participating.And although API limits means this doesn t quite happen in realtime, coupled with its own machine learning and algorithms, Dojo Madness is able to provide some in-play guidance — though not enough to cheat the game, Hilgers stresses — as well a more comprehensive coaching debrief afterwards.Meanwhile, eSports as a whole is estimated by market tracking firm NewZoo to be worth $463 million in 2016, up 43 percent from last year.

Ummo is a data-driven app that aims to bring self-awareness to public speakingAn app developed by Harvard and MIT students analyses speech patterns to help users improve their public speaking skills.The prospect of having to spontaneously speak and articulate a concept can be quite daunting and often, as noticed by the creators of Ummo, lead people to "fall into the trap of using endless filler words "umm", "uhh", "you know", "like" to bridge the silence as they articulate their thoughts.""We came together as friends at Harvard and realised that less-than-perfect communication is an issue for all and one that people desperately want to improve and yet simply have ignored for too long.We talked to everyone from professors in the communications programme at Harvard, to executive coaches and speech therapists around the nation, as well as to our former employers consulting firms and banks that spent ample money on communications coaching for new-hires to understand the most common use cases.Unlike some other productivity apps, Ummo currently stores no data including audio files.Most notably, Ummo does not provide "overall rating" for users' speeches.

I was particularly excited to read his new book, Sales Manager Survival Guide, which is a refreshing, highly accessible and much-needed set of best practices for sales managers of all levels and tenures.Last week I sat down with David to talk about sales management, the general lack of good sales manager content, and how other departments can help support sales managers to be more successful.To be honest, developing content, training, materials for sales people is where the money and eye balls are.There s far less content for sales managers, partly because of the numbers.So while the sales manager is involved in selling, the issues are more business management, leadership, people development, coaching, performance management.Get your copy of Sales Manager Survival Guide here!
