|The World Bank is warning that global growth appears to have peaked after growing 3% last year.
But the good news is that growth is likely to remain constant until 2020.
We've certainly come a long way since the 2008 financial crisis and some of the more recent scares. Remember when Greece was a basket case and other European economies were being written off by the experts? And what about the predictions that the UK economy would collapse after the Brexit announcement?
The message is probably to keep doing what you're doing, but do it smarter and safer - and keep an eye on your competitors. But, most importantly, watch your customers closely and try to meet their needs.
