Spring is normally a time for change and for new beginnings and this year we could be confronting some of the greatest changes we have had to face for a long time. Whatever your view on leaving the EU, whether you think it will make for positive change or that it could be the worst thing you may ever encounter, it is still going to be important to look at all the potential impacts you might face and to prepare for them as best you can.
As a young slip of a girl, I worked for an organisation in London which set up huge turnkey projects in the Middle East and Africa. It was complicated and yet fascinating to be involved in ensuring that all the parts worked together to enable the contracts to click into place. In a sense, we all need to be aware of all the parts that make the ‘whole’ in our business world. To steal a quote from John Donne, ‘No man’ and no business ‘is an island, entire of itself’. It’s well worth being aware of that in these fluid times.
