Hatch Communication
Hatch Presents: P I V O T A L (an E-book for South African Business Leaders)
Adapt to Succeed

The ultimate goal of this e-book is to create a quick and easy reference guide to assist business owners and management teams during this time of the COVID-19 pandemic.
There is no textbook that can guide us, but maybe with the perspectives, insights and knowledge of fellow business owners with years of experience, we can all prevent exponential job losses, business closures and give valuable support to fellow business owners, who themselves might feel like they are drowning.

Course corrections or adjustments will become the new normal for business owners and now, more than ever, your decisions and actions are of crucial importance; the survival of our businesses will depend on it. Use these tips and resources and let’s all pivot our companies and people for success.
It covers everything from an Economic Outlook, Business Strategy, Crisis Communication and PR, E-commerce, Company Culture, Business Finance, Employee Remuneration Options, Remote Work Best Practice and Investing in Yourself.


We’ve been humbled with the overall positive reactions and contributions from the various authors in this issue and are thrilled to share this with you. Thank you Henniel Smit, Louis Fourie, Maartin Ackerman, Wilhelm Fismer, Heike Kannemeyer, Adri Dörnbrack, Estienne Venter, Francois Kriel, Arnold Scholtz and JP Cronje for your enthusiasm and valuable contributions.
