August has already seen the start of the 2016 Olympic games and success has started with our 1st swimming medals with a Gold & world record from Adam Peaty plus a silver from Jazz Carlin following successes in sport during June and July for the UK in the shape of Andy Murray winning Wimbledon and Chris Froome winning the Tour de France for the 3rd time in cycling amongst others.
The UK has seen good news for exporters with the weakening of £GB and also with major global brands – McDonald’s, Boeing & Smith Kline confirming more investment & creating new jobs in the UK. The UK Leisure industry has also received a shot in the arm with reported bookings for UK based holidays.
However, as usual in periods of change, some businesses have deferred decision making to see what the future holds. Well, as the saying goes “If you do today what you did yesterday you will get tomorrow what you got today”. Well, the future is here and now! In the UK it will be businesses which take advantage of opportunities when others are procrastinating that will reap the rewards in the coming months and years. It’s time to be proud to be British and to be successful.
So what does success look like to you and what are the challenges, if any, which are stopping you from achieving it? Take ACTION now and carry out a full business analysis to identify the opportunities and threats that you and your business can react to, and benefit from, to allow you to achieve your success.
When you are doing the analysis it is equally important to understand how any changes occurring in the market will impact on your customers.
