I realise this is an odd thing for a Digital Transformation Consultant to say. It's also an odd thing to say in a pandemic when many people - myself included - have bemoaned the lack of human interaction. In fact, I have promoted some forms, in particular the digital lunch.

How Microsoft 365 changes your approach to business change

Everywhere you look these days you see posts, articles and books about how you need to change your business. While for people who have spent a lifetime building a business that’s not always an easy message to hear, I think 2020 has showed that increased agility, productivity and mobility will be important. As we normalise life after COVID-19, or perhaps live permanently with it, the changes it forced upon us will have a long impact.

Wi-Fi: Are you getting the best coverage?

Wi-Fi is an interesting beast in that it has become ubiquitous in its presence and our desire to consume it. Wherever we go we are either looking out for free Wi-Fi or the businesses we visit are actively promoting we use it. In our homes it fuels most of our devices (I dare say there will be some like me who own a comms cabinet full of tech but it's pretty rare) and should it fail it can (according to my children) be like falling back in time.
