The first big heat wave of the year is rolling through the country, half of the republic is dangling their feet by the pool, in the sea or in a paddling pool – and the team from zipcon consulting and beyond-print.de is also taking a short “siesta” for the summer break. Time to pause, reorganize our thoughts and recharge our batteries – and starting August 15, we’ll be back with a fresh mind and exciting contributions.
We have had an eventful few months. As if the effects of the pandemic weren’t keeping us in check enough – both socially and economically – the war in Ukraine has rocked what we take for granted. Companies must learn to deal with uncertainty. Volatility, as was heard several times at the Online Print Symposium, has long since become part of society. But that doesn’t have to mean anything negative, because change often gives rise to exciting new business ideas and models.
For instance, we learned a lot about them at the Online Print Symposium, which was finally able to take place once again after an unavoidable break due to corona. It was great to be able to meet and exchange ideas in real life again. After all, the best ideas and collaborations only come about when we talk to each other in real life. And I’m sure we can look forward to seeing what the online print community has in store for us in the next six months. At any rate, it won’t be boring.
But first things first: stop, pause, rest. Because as the saying goes, nothing moves us forward better than a break.
With this in mind, we wish our readers, customers and partners a relaxing and enjoyable summer.
We’ll be back with a fresh mind and exciting articles starting August 15.
Yours truly, Bernd Zipper
