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 Process Excellence is key for a successful ERP Implementation

I have been reflecting on my experiences working on ERP implementation/upgrade programmes whilst also listening and hearing to what others have to say. I think back to these projects and notice everyone was working hectically towards the programme ‘Go – Live’ and were under the impression that once they achieved this Go - Live then we have successfully implemented a new ERP System and our job is complete. I think many people can agree with me that a Go – Live date is just the start of the journey.  We have got to think about the people, culture, education, efficiency in processes and where can we reduce ‘waste’.

Being part of the conversations that need our attention – It’s a Penalty

It is not uncommon for us as humans to shy away from some discussions. It might be too difficult, make us uncomfortable or make us feel as if there is nothing we can do to make a difference. However, sometimes that is all we need to do to encourage change; have the conversation.
