1. Keep calm

now is the time for agility and resilience – and South Africans are good at that

2. Communicate

Share information with your staff from the WHO on precautions and other preventive measures.

3. Identify your weakest link

can technology help fill the gap and assist in reducing the costly, legacy aspects of your business?

4. Gear up for opportunity

Can you leverage debt at a lower cost?

5. Be flexible and keep up morale 

use remote working arrangements for staff who would like to limit their contact with others and work from home. And although this is not business as usual ensure that staff understand that you are still guiding the ship SS Enterprise.
