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.

Why work in our Digital Enablement capability?

Digital Enablement is a fancy way of describing how technology can support and enable organisations to work smarter, flex faster and generally make day to day employee life better through effective use of technology.

Process Excellence – more relevant than ever

Love it or loathe it, process is an integral part of every industry and it is going nowhere. I work as a consultant who operates within the Process Excellence and Transformational Change space and almost all issues and problem statements, I see my clients face across industries can start to be solved, or at least improved, with well-defined and understood processes. These processes in turn facilitate value-adding change, in line with business strategy.

What is your ‘why’?

I was trying to think at the weekend, as to why I work for Sysdoc. Of course, like any company, we want to drive people to approach us and be bought into our brand, but it is not always that easy. One thing I always found difficult when I was searching for a new job, was knowing what a company was truly like. We see so many hiring campaigns and videos of people laughing, deep in thought, grouped together or socialising over drinks, but that is an absolutely impossible way to find out what the company culture is like.
