Avril McDonald - Leading positive change

Thomas Bugler

Giving back to the communities in which a business works should be an important part of any company ethos. It is key to ours.

Over the coming weeks, we will be sharing with you some stories which are close to our heart. Stories of people who are leading positive change in the world.

The solutions that we deliver are centred on our values. The people and organisations that we will focus on are no different. They are socially conscious, entrepreneurial and using what they care about as a force for good.

This blog is the first in a series on how we are 'leading positive change', where we will hear from the people and charities we have supported to share their story of our journey with them.

First we hear from Avril McDonald. Avril is helping young children understand and manage what can often be complex emotions - worry, anxiety, grief. 

How? Through a series of children’s books which have been translated for young audiences across the globe.

We will explain how, with the help of Sysdoc, Avril is enabling an understanding of these emotions in a socially conscious way. Avril has embedded strategies to cope with these emotions into characters, to resonate with her little readers.

To find out more, hear from Avril in the video below.

Interesting insight was gained after attending the MCA event in central London. There were two panels of consultants that spoke. One being experienced leading consultants, and the other, young emerging consultants. Discussions ranged from the importance of diversity in a workplace to generate success to mental well being in organisations today.

Getting full value from your investment in SAP S/4HANA

There is an accelerating demand from SAP customers who need to migrate from SAP ECC to S/4HANA before the December 2027 end of support deadline. Moving from ECC6 to S/4HANA is not an upgrade - it’s the adoption of a new way of working. To realise the full value of any S/4HANA investment requires a robust business change programme, an organisation-wide commitment to core process adoption, and a more agile approach to adopting innovation.

Social Housing – Rising to the challenge

Rising to the challenge The housing sector, like any other sector, has faced challenges and changes over recent years. The political and environmental landscape continue to have an impact and the ramifications of the Grenfell tragedy are still not clear. These challenges combined with the impact of COVID-19 forced housing organisations to further evaluate the specific issues that impact their services, solutions, and support to tenants, pushing them towards new ways of working and enhancing the digital journey.
