Good News! – October 2020

Good News! – October 2020

Back in August 2009, deep in the trough of the Great Recession and weary of the daily barrage of “Everything’s gone wrong! The world is about to end!!”, we began this monthly roundup of what was still going right. We called it The Winner’s Column. Today, Covid-19 has created a new kind of uncertainty – but with a critical difference: everyone is susceptible this time around. No “best practices” or management jiujitsu will stop the virus, only slow its spread (or so we hope). And here comes winter. So, in addition to our regular roundup of business growth and change, we’ve added a special section on how businesses are coping with the coronavirus.

Here’s your chance to follow the leaders, every third Tuesday of the month!

And if you’re not doing it already, send us your good news here!
