The Covid-19 pandemic has brought around many changes to the workplace. 
 
For example, with government-mandated lockdowns meaning many employees must now work from home, there has been a significant shift in the way in which companies operate. 
 
During this time, video conferencing tools have become a lifeline that many businesses cling to in order to retain some semblance of normality, and allow their company to function accordingly. 
 
For any business, in any given field, effective communication is always of the utmost importance. 
 
The way you communicate with your prospective customer base is, of course, what the art of marketing is all about. It’s at the heart of your ability to sell the product or service you are offering, while simultaneously doing what you can to establish a long-standing and positive reputation for your company in the industry at large. 
 
Have you ever wondered why sometimes a project that sounded so promising, to begin with just fizzles out to nothing? 
 
Even projects with the potential to revolutionise the way a business runs can lose momentum and eventually linger incomplete. This loss of momentum is pretty common within organisations and can occur even when a project starts with high levels of engagement from all parties. 
The continuing pandemic and various lockdowns have changed several important aspects of lives. Today, we build relationships, work, and communicate with our colleagues in a different way compared to just a year ago! All the signs are now pointing to this continuing for the foreseeable future. 
 
With such a sudden switch in communication methods, it was essential to catch up and introduce a different solution to allow team members to think together, discuss, and create new ideas - virtually and safely. 
 
So, communication or team management platforms that had been on the market for 1-2 years before the pandemic saw their subscribers steadily increase this year. Like all choices, it does not come without a drawback or two. However, the benefits of such platforms are endless and worth considering! 
 
 
As a company grows, the company director needs to devolve a number of their roles and responsibilities. 
 
When the business is bigger, there is more that needs to be done, and if as a company director you tried to carry on doing it all, you would quickly find your daily tasks piling up and end up being unproductive. 
 
When it is your baby, so to speak, it can be hard to relinquish some of what you are doing, as a company expands completely separate teams may be required as the work becomes more varied. 
 
 
 
 
 
At the start of the global pandemic, many organisations were thrown in at the deep end, with a lot of businesses having their workforce suddenly working remotely. Whilst there are some businesses that will have had some experience with this, for many it was unchartered territory. Business owners who now had to accommodate all of their remote working employees brought with it some challenges particularly around communication. 
 
 
 
 
We are living in a world where it has become so easy to connect with each other socially and within a business, but are we using it as effectively as we could? 
 
When it comes to working remotely in the current economic climate, is your business prepared? 
 
 
 
 
 
Whatever kind of changes your business might have gone through in recent times as a result of the coronavirus outbreak and subsequent lockdown, it is never too early to start thinking about how you are going to respond when the lockdown is lifted and the world unpauses. 
 
We don’t yet know if the lockdown will end suddenly or if there will be a staggered easing. However, it is important to plan for our business future - whatever that might be. 
 
But what will be required when the lockdown is lifted? In this article, we are going to take a look at some of the demands that you might have on your head as a Multi-Hatted Director (MHD). 
 
How can you ensure you meet all of these properly? 
 
As an entrepreneur, you always want to keep up to date with what your consumers and other businesses want. In the current world of modern business, people expect the Amazon experience. More and more businesses and consumers are expecting the ability to submit orders electronically and track them online. It’s become increasingly commonplace to send delivery confirmations, invoices, and all other transactions online as opposed to relying on traditional postal options. The process is called electronic data interchange (EDI), and employing EDI could give you a competitive advantage over your rivals. Let’s take a look at some of the benefits of using EDI for your business. 
When you begin a project within your organisation you want to start it safe in the knowledge that your project will deliver what you expect. Before starting a project, your project manager will set out the key initiatives and projected outcomes along with timescales and budget. It is the responsibility of the team and the project leader to ensure that the project stays on track and delivers the right objectives.
