I’m reaching out to ask the teams thoughts on the following;In a post COVID world, how do we deliver a great customer experience when we can no longer be face to face with our global customers? How are B2B businesses engaging with their customers to ensure content, the long conversion sale, and top of mind saliency still remain intact?I’d love to get a handle on businesses that are using innovative ways to do so and any case studies that point to fresh thinking in this space. I’m curious about the future of tradeshows, product demonstrations, and how to build connection and empathy with overseas customers, and internal teams, when travel restrictions veto meeting, networking and entertaining prospects and customers in-person. Business is relational but how is that developed virtually.Many thanks in advance for your thoughts.

I’m just starting an accounting business, specialising in one type of industry, and am now setting up my website. I want to have information/instruction sheets/hints/best ways of doing things etc on my website, but I am unsure of the best way of doing this. I could post blogs/newsletters on my website, making the information available to anyone who accesses the site. That would allow people to see that I do know my stuff, and would provide content for non-clients to browse if they were checking out my services, but the information would then be available to competitors.I could post snippets of information and have those who are interested in more sign up for newsletters, which would give me access to email addresses.I’ve could use a client portal, where the more detailed instruction sheets are kept for my clients, and only post more general information on the public pages.I guess I’m wondering what is the best way to put this information on my website, that will allow prospective clients to access useful information that may make them want to sign with me, or sign up for newsletters, without giving competitors access to information sheets. Do I use some type of client portal, or do I just bite the bullet and put the information out there, for simplicity’s sake?
EDUCATION / TECHNOLOGY / WORKPLACE SKILLSHow can I let businesses and communities know that there are FREE workplace training courses available? I can write bespoke curriculum to align with business values/goals.I run a training business in Auckland (but also have online solutions), and lost my training contract due to covid. I have teaching/life coaching/workplace assessor skills and a portfolio of courses to support staff and management. I have access to govt funding under the literacy scheme. Topics include cv writing, budgeting, life coaching, health & safety, wellbeing, health literacy, communication, team leadership, cultural diversity, child care, healthy eating etc. Businesses seem focussed on gearing up since lockdown – fair enough! but education will help with engagement and build confidence/skills.I also have a question about investment options: I am busy building a prototype to address the digital divide & literary/numeracy skills deficit. 1 in 4 people are below the literacy line in NZ. First to market – how do I sell it?
