This is advice from Ian McAlister, General Manager at CRS Technologies, who says that while it is impossible to ignore challenges and their impact, the best approach is really to remain positive and resolute.

The correct advice and the right time can make all the difference. Now, more than ever, we work together with people who have the right mental approach, positive reinforcement and are prepared to back up what they say. That is exactly what will differentiate businesses in the economy in 2023.”
