Dear Lisa

Thank you for your Tweet regarding key points for structuring an impactful business case. Read tons of books on ways to do it but still have not nailed the 2-3 key pillars and how to finesse the language around the points. I am putting together 5 industry business cases for an innovative corporate reporting approach “Integrated Reporting” which my organisation believes will not only replace the usual annual report but revolutionise the way financial and non-financial information is linked. 5-10 page teaser document is my goal getting the reader interested in learning more. Thank you Lisa – your book is ace! Henning

How do I unsubscribe to smart talk? I want to stop printing SmartTalk to my home printer. It’s using up all my ink. Although these are informative, they do not help me in my current position. I subscribed via my printer and cannot unsubscribe the same way.

    Thanks for contacting us and describing what has been happening with your printer. Both HP and I apologize for any issue you are having.

    What has been printing on your printer is an HP “printable” application (not a fax) which ONLY prints if options were selected directly from the front panel of your printer. Someone may have accidentally subscribed to Smart Talk on your printer.

    As I am only a content provide to HP, I suggest you contact HP directly for the best possible support: 1-855-785-2777.

    However, in the meantime, because I do understand that no one wants to waste ink, here are the instructions that were given to me.

    It is a setting on your printer that you need to change. Again, I do not have any list/information/fax about you or your printer.

    You can use the following steps to “pause” (or stop) the scheduled print jobs (or follow the instructions listed at the bottom of every printed page).

    1. On the product control panel, go to the Apps menu.

    2. Review the list of available Print Apps, and then select the Smart Talk or any application you want to pause.

    3. Once the App is open, select Pause from the available options. This will stop the subscription of print jobs after the next scheduled delivery; that means one more print is likely.

    To learn about more options please visit (then choose your country) or if you don’t have internet access in North American you can call HP Customer Support at 1-855-785-2777.

    Rest assured, our company would never spam anyone with unwanted content. We are hopeful that the above steps will quickly resolve your issue with your HP Printer.

    Thanks again for contacting us.
