How Covid-19 has transformed businesses into digital businesses

In just few months the business world experimented one of the biggest transformations of all times. Covid-19 pushed business to their boundaries and force them to evolve towards the technology side, a sector that has taken Covid-19 remarkable well.

The pandemic has prompted many business to invest in IT projects and digital transformation.

Driving business towards technology is a key factor to stay competitive in this new business world and economic environment. For example, it is fascinating how now a days we can see a doctor giving telehealth appointments or office worker are having meetings via zoom, Microsoft teams, google meets, etc. Even super markets evolved to deliver groceries to your door step with all this new strategies and ideas these business stayed alive during the Pandemic.

The challenges placed on technology leaders are among the most multi-dimensional in which organizations have had to grapple. Virtually overnight, they have been asked to support a broad sweep of new pressures—changing customer demands to digital channels, reconfigured supply chains, additional necessary workforce collaboration capacity and bandwidth, licenses and equipment to support remote work, and a litany of other issues requiring immediate scale and resiliency. https://www2.deloitte.com/global/en/pages/about-deloitte/articles/covid-19/shaping-the-future-through-digital-business.html

Testimony about your experience at LBCN:

LCBN was a great platform to launch my business. When I first decided to turn my part-time business into my new mission and long-term career path, I started attending LCBN’s monthly breakfasts. These networking events were paramount in helping me meet other professional members in the Latin community and create a brand for myself.

I would highly recommend you become part of LCBN to fast-start your business, and become part of the Latin-American business community.

Testimony about your experience at LBCN:

As a guest speaker with LBCN, I felt supported to create a presentation around pivoting your business that would directly speak to the entrepreneurial mindset which I feel is a key aspect of being a successful business owner. LBCN was very professional in creating a colorful advertisement for the event and I was so pleased to share this through my network. The event itself was well attended and participants felt comfortable to share and ask questions which made the experience interactive and engaging. LBCN staff were organized, efficient and friendly and I felt look after every step of the way.

Tell us something about you:

I was born and raised in Mexico, where I studied law in Guadalajara, Jalisco. This permitted me to become aware of the fact that business relationships are what makes up most of organized society. My passion is to create businesses catered to the current demand of society. However, my biggest passion is to create healthy and diverse businesses by always maintaining the customer as my number one priority.

Being an active member of LCBN has permitted me to have access to a large data base of other entrepreneurs and a vast amount of companies which each specialize in different mercantile niches. This has enabled our company (Western Canada Education Services) to become well-known amongst the Latin community in Canada. This, in effect, has given us the opportunity to position ourselves effectively in Latin America.
