We seem to be in a downward spiral. I hear people all around me firmly focused on short-term recessionary issues. How often have you heard a conversation that starts “I’ve never known it so tough. I have had to cut my cost base by 40%, lay 25% of my staff off and my pipeline has dried up”? Put two like-minded people together and it doesn’t take much to get to the bottom a deep recessionary hole. Why do Managers, Directors, Financiers and the media feel it necessary to talk themselves into a recession?
I am taking a more positive approach. I firmly believe there is a future for businesses in the UK. You just have to be positive and stretch your view from the immediate to the medium term. The key factor that is helping my business grow in todays market is the strength and creativity of my team. We are working hard, looking for creative innovative ways to be more efficient and to strengthen our pipeline. We are constantly looking to hire strong sales and delivery people. We are also in accquisition mode as there are a number of firms that are struggling and are therefore under valued.
I m looking forward to riding the recovery wave.
