Business during the pandemic

With the outbreak and spread of COVID-19 around the world, we are facing an unprecedented global challenge. Everybody must do their part to help fight the novel coronavirus.

Therefore, I will not be conducting any face-to-face training with clients or producing any marketing films until the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Finnish health authorities tell the public that widespread social distancing is no longer required in normal day-to-day life.

However, if you are self-isolating or engaging in social distancing, it’s an ideal opportunity for you to develop your writing ability. After we discuss your needs by phone or email, you can send me a document for feedback. You’ll get an engaging task to stop you getting bored, you’ll have adequate time to complete writing exercises without rushing, and you’ll add to your professional skills. 

Get personal coaching via video chat on any of my specialist topics – presentation skills, writing, and culture.

You can use my copywriting services as you normally would, because they can be easily provided over email. As the economy slows down this spring, now is a good time to get your documentation ready and make it really good for when business picks up again later in the year. Work on your web pages that badly need an update. Create a new brochure describing an upcoming product. Make a new presentation slide deck for a teleconference. Develop a speech to inspire your people to keep going. Start a blog to stay connected with your customers.

Please feel free to ask for copywriting or proofreading services at any time.

As I said at the beginning of this post, we have a big challenge ahead of us. Although health is the highest priority, the economy is going to be hit hard. If it’s possible, keep your business open, because it will help to limit financial repercussions, but don’t do it at the expense of anybody’s health, including your own.

When you do business, stay safe and protect yourself, your colleagues and your loved ones by taking the right precautions when you must have contact with others and doing as much work as possible remotely. 

The current situation is not permanent. We are going to get through it together. 

I look forward to our continued cooperation during this crisis and beyond.
