I’ve thought a lot this year about connections and connectedness – and my passion to make those connections matter, to have purpose.
The pandemic has shown us the diverse ways we’re connected to each other. Wherever we are in the UK, we’re solving similar problems while being confronted with new realities. At work we’re now collaborating and connecting in a way we’ve never done before. And at home I've seen the same happen – relationships renewed and connections strengthened – when for the first time, parents, guardians and children worked and home-schooled under the same roof. And I saw just how important technology was in connecting us to the outside world.
Connectedness has also been front of mind for most businesses. The crisis has awoken many clients to the urgent need to improve connections inside their own businesses to survive and move into the new reality with confidence. 67% have accelerated their digital transformation strategy, according to new research we’ve done with Forrester. *( *Source: A commissioned study conducted by Forrester Consulting on behalf of KPMG, July 2020)
