In this week's '15 Minutes To Action', Nick reflects upon the lockdown period, how it has affected the business landscape - what we can learn from the last 12-18 months, and what we can take forward as business owners and entrepreneurs.
- The world has gone through unprecedented change, and we must appreciate what it will mean. The system has been altered forever.
- Being agile really matters. One of the main takeaways from lockdown has been that those who respond and adapt quickly have survived and thrived.
- We have proved that we can work effectively and efficiently without being in a static place of work, and without having to meet people face to face.
- People have always seen home as a refuge - an escape from work. With the rise of remote working, this has been re-evaluated. We need to make sure we strike a balance in this new world.
'There is a certain degree of certainty and confidence coming back'
'To reinvent is now a critical component of any business'
'We're seeing entrepreneurs looking at these business trends and coming up with some brilliant business ideas'
'It's going to be interesting to see how people adjust to those different dimensions'

Having successfully built, bought and sold a number of companies, and removed myself from day-to-day operations, my focus now is on helping entrepreneurs get to where they want to be, in business and in life.

I’m passionate about personal and professional development - showing up and being the best version of myself ... every day.
My bigger vision is to help bring entrepreneurial skills, experience and mindset to people in developing nations - so they can follow their dreams, live life more on their terms - utilising entrepreneurship as a global force for good.
