When asked to deliver a speech in business, the pressure is ‘on’ to produce something that is valuable and engaging, to leave your audience feeling fulfilled.

Managing staff holidays can be challenging, especially for small businesses as the teams are smaller and arranging cover can be difficult. All workers are entitled to paid annual leave, therefore you will need to be prepared to have staff off from work for four to six weeks per year. Successfully managing staff holidays helps to create a happier team, boosting the productivity of the business.
When you are running a business you will need to be organised, or at least attempt to be, in order to run it successfully.

Whether you are focusing on tax or the your employees’ holidays, you need to have your small business in order.
