This has given me an excellent opportunity to reflect on current business processes and where we can improve them.  This is particularly relevant as our business is growing rapidly.  I will be holding a management team session in the next 3-6 months where we walk through the checklists that are relevant to us and agree which actions we will take to improve our own processes, for now and the future
