Recession survival strategies for small and medium businesses

I was honored to be part of GetConnected Magazine Spring 2009 Issue.

This issue helps you save money with green savvy practices (pg.16) hear from the technology companies making creative and agile decisions (pg.22) and get inspired by some of the big things happening in Canadian Telecoms (pg.28). Whatever industry you are in there is a technology you can employ to help you through the economic climate.

We were interviewed for one of the featured article: “Surviving and Thriving in the Downturn” by Steve Kim. The article looked at SME businesses who employed cost cutting measures to ensure survival during this downturn but also to set them up for growth. Read more…

During the downturn, one of the most effective measure is to get rid of your office lease but if you still the basic small business amenities to still grow your business then The Network Hubprovides some very attractive options. Shared office space or short-term lease rental which includes costs of all utilities, amenities such as fax, reception service, meeting room and mail receiving and more importantly, a predictable budget so there is no unpredictable extra cost. For those who found comfort in transitioning from office to their home office but don’t want to find clients at their door step, we offer downtown business address at $25 dollars a month.

In ending, the most memorable lesson from the article is that “the best offense is a strong defense”. Pick up a copy of the issue at your closest London Drugs location.
