Coronavirus: Unleashing new business landscape

The global business environment has never been shaken and transformed in such a short space of time as it had on the advent of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. A new ecosystem has to unfold in a very fast-paced manner in that business leadership has to also be rethought and new thinking identified.  Business leadership and its responsiveness to changing conditions in the ecosystem has to be elevated to another level, thus our contribution through the establishment of the Elevation Business Magazine

Boardrooms, PMO’s are being reconfigured wherein virtual engagements and other platforms are the order of the day.  It does not matter where team members are, efficient and effective decisions are necessary to ensure sustainable performance is achieved.   4IR has been fast-tracked!  Thought leadership that is strategic, inspiring, with EQ that feels what the “experience economy” present and can cascade it down necessary

This necessitates noting that efforts taken by countries like China to build a strong entrepreneurship base were well informed as small entities are flexible and ready to pragmatically respond to the ever-changing ecosystem. Elevation of the entrepreneurship ecosystem to a higher level of adding value on how economies get to instill a sense of multilateralism and provide probable adoption and adaptation for other economies may be necessary.  This is so true for economies whose existence isn’t dependent on natural resources. African Continental Free Trade Area agreement is being implemented, the new US administration under the 46th President, Joe Biden is unfolding, collaboration on the fight against the pandemic underway.  These are some of the developments that shape the new business and economic landscape.    Our Elevation Business Magazine will harness these kinds of issues to ensure decision-makers and influencers are matched and brought closer.

Companies with responsive, strategic leadership that ensure that there is cohesion amongst board members, auditors and management to deliver value-for-money performance-driven initiatives.  Enhancement of corporate governance, strategic implementation and collaboration between politics and business should result in the better world order.  Our Elevation Business Magazine was imagined by the founders noting that there was and there is that gap and thus a need to influence and guide business leadership through cutting edge news.  We have assembled a team of journalists that would ensure delivery of such to benefit those in strategic leadership roles
