Make sure you keep innovating. Everything changes quickly in technology so whatever you produce needs to be constantly challenged and adapted. I always think: “Can we do this faster/cheaper/better with newer technology?” I ask this every six months and if there’s something exciting, the idea is developed and new products are created. It’s vital to stay flexible – if you don’t, your set-up can’t change to take advantage of the latest, leading-edge innovations.

Business Manager, AMI I believe that it’s always important to consider the bigger picture. In business, it’s easy to become overly focused on the task in hand. I always try to think about what is ahead, to identify opportunities and stay focused on the bigger goals. Having a good team that understands the business’s objectives and that works with you to achieve these is also key for success.
There are many definitions, but there’s one thing that all great business leaders agree on, and that’s how success can only come by persevering despite failure.
