Welcome to April 1st, the start of the new financial year. It's now 12 months on from when Covid-19 kicked into gear globally and torn apart New Zealand businesses from many acute angles. If you were lucky enough or smart enough to plan a master strategy of survival - well done. And, most of all a big congratulations to all fellow business owners, partners, leaders, and positive thinkers who dug in at the top, worked the edges, performed miracles for their employees so they could stay retained in their positions. A year to put on the bottom shelf.
