City News March 2012

As we entered this year, we took some time to reflect and look back at the previous twelve months. We celebrated the successes and learned lessons from opportunities lost.

In these uncertain economic times, the challenges we all face have no previous framework and provide no basis on which to formulate our business plans; short term planning and the associated decision-making being critical to ensuring an agile response to those unplanned situations we face on a daily basis. What we can also do at this time, is work together for mutual gain and benefit. Now, more than ever, business partnership and true support between service provider and client is critical to managing success in your business.

In 21 weeks' time, the London Olympics will commence, an event that will showcase great planning, execution, dedication and success - not only for the organisers, but within teams and between coaches and athletes. We look forward to continuing our support and working with you all to make this our Olympic year - let's all aim for Gold together!
