What are your business plans for this year? Have you been thinking about the things you’d like to achieve? The things you’d like to do more of, and the things you want to do less?
We write this blog three months into lockdown. Like many others, we are working from home running our business from an office we’ve set up. It’s fully functioning and, over the past few weeks, we’ve adapted and honed our processes to ensure that we can continue to deliver our projects in this new world.
Not a week goes by when we don’t hear headlines about a case of cyber crime. For some, these news stories have become wallpaper. It’s happening, but not to me. Does it really happen that much? Unfortunately, yes. Stop for a moment and think about it: what would it feel like if it did happen to you and what could the impact be?
Have you heard the famous African proverb “it takes a whole village to raise a child”?

In some ways this is how we feel about business and community in West Oxfordshire.
One of things we love most is solving a challenge. A problem that at first may feel like you’ve lost the end of the Christmas tree lights – the deeper you get, the more muddled you end up. Put into a business context, these problems can sometimes be one of a kind and are the type of problem that we love to solve with technology.
