Recently I was asked by Xero to contribute an article to their blog on the year that was 2018.
This was the result:
It’s that time of year in Australia once more. The Melbourne Cup is over and the Christmas party season is in full swing. Christmas beetles are appearing. The cicada crescendo has begun. As the weather warms up, businesses (outside of hospitality) are starting to wind down for the year.
It’s a great opportunity to make time for reflection on the year that was. What did we learn and how does that influence the year ahead?
Well, Australia has a new prime minister in a non-election year. New Zealand retains a highly popular PM. Brexit is proving difficult and Trump continues to polarise and tweet. In politics, what did we learn? Not much.
But what about the SME technology industry? A lot happened in 2018.
