Be ahead of the game

The last trading quarter is an ideal time for business owners to look towards an end of year game. Here are eight things that business owners can do to carry them over the 2022 finish line into 2023.

Business – it’s a game and not an easy one – especially in current socio-economic conditions. Nevertheless, like any game, a combination of rules and tools, strategies and stealth, can help achieve winning goals. Among these, foresight – looking ahead – may be considered a key ingredient to future success.

Understandably in many organisations, medium term planning often gets overlooked in day-to-day operational and management pressures.

Nevertheless, no rugby, football or Fortnite team can go out into the field without a game plan, and the last trading quarter is an ideal time for business owners to look towards an end-of-year game that will carry them over the finish line.

Planning too late in the year likely does not allow enough of a headstart on the next year, and can see business strategies on the back foot, especially when teams are returning after holiday breaks.

Planning ahead will ensure all stakeholders are well prepared for what is coming, with the peace of mind that your business communications strategies are ahead of the curve.
