Recently I made a pretty ground breaking decision which was a moment of realisation for me. I decided that I couldn’t do business with suppliers or colleagues, collaborate or belong to Discussion Groups unless the people I was connecting with we’re digitally savvy and could respond to email, Calendar Invitations and open documents fast.
