What a Year It Has Been.............

In about 1 hour, I am going off to chair our AGM. Events like this, always lead me to reflect on the past, and hopefully learn a few lessons. This time 12 months ago, I was off to do much the same thing, but what a different scenario! We had just finished a good year, and although there were some signs of an economy taking a breather, it was difficult to foresee what the rest of the year would bring. What it brought, was the bumpiest ride of my career, but so far we have managed to get this far along that ride, more or less intact.

We have had some casualties along the way, but that is nothing unusual these days. However I can point to some really good outcomes. Our family of people, have really pulled together: they have understood that only as a team will we emerge stronger. We have got people doing more of the right thing, and less of the "looking busy". We have honed our sales teams to focus, focus, focus, and we have invested more time and resource in marketing, and ensuring that we truly understand what our customers need.

I am proud to say, that Cornelians have risen to the challenge, and tackled it without fear or trepidation. We may not be out of the mire quite yet: the world is still a tough place, but I am more optimistic that better times lie ahead. Thanks everyone.
