For the week of September 21st: 4 promising industries of the future and their challenges for the forthcoming period
Industry decarbonization, next-gen battery, energy, and electric vehicles look like the “booming sectors” of the future, but investing scarce resources in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic and the BREXIT should raise a red flag.

For the week of September 7th: Finance vs COVID-19
The slowdown of economic activity caused by the COVID-19 outbreak is old news. It’s no wonder that a bulk of insolvencies is expected to come and shake the end of 2020 and the first quarter of 2021.

Welcome to Biz Dev Dynamics forums. We host and moderate these forums, free of charge, to expedite a [Public/Private] serious discussion between accepted members.
We offer these forums to advance a professional discussion of issues, challenges, and potential remedies, relevant to SME manufacturing organisations[. /, in the UK given the compound effect of the pandemic and Brexit.]
Above all, members are expected to be kind, helpful, and respectful. Assume the best of people and try to make things better. By sharing our points of views, our thoughts and experiences, we improve our ability to read what is happening accurately and formulate approaches to deal with the challenges ahead.
Sharing is much appreciated but is by no means mandatory. No one is compelled to share anything with anyone else.
When you voice your opinion, however, know that guideline violations will result in posting access being restricted by being flagged for moderation (a moderator to have to approve your posts before they are made public). This restriction is meant to be temporary and will be lifted when the moderators feel the situation has been resolved. If a member cannot follow the guidelines after that, their membership will be restricted to “listen only” mode. Further actions (such as limiting access to Biz Dev Dynamics as a whole) can and will be applied if necessary.
Contacting the Moderators
If a post needs moderator attention, there is a ‘Report this topic’ link on every thread. That will add a message to a queue moderators watch and follow up with many times a day. It can often help if you also add a reply that explains what you need.
Do not spam
The forums are here for providing members with a noiseless venue to discuss and participate in collaborative learning.
Do Not Offer to Pay for Help
Any thread that offers any service for money can be closed at any time. We are not against paid services, but these forums are not the right place for them.
Do Not Offer to Work For Hire
Don’t offer to work for hire in replies on these forums. Help on the forums should be given freely, as in beer.
When creating links to other resources
Public links are to be avoided as much as reasonable.
Links may come and go, websites change, URLs change, this all could mean that someone looking for something, in the future, ends up on a site no longer running.
The Bad Stuff…
We need to keep the forums friendly, so, occasionally, topic content will be moderated. In severe cases, members may be blocked. This might mean anything from the light editing of some posts to complete removal of topics and deactivation of accounts. It should go without saying, but the following are likely candidates for moderation or intervention.
- Do not post login information, even test IDs and test passwords.
- Do not post another person’s private information (job, gender, living situation, location, etc.).
- Do not harass or abuse people.
- Do not abuse the ‘Report this topic’ or ‘modlook’ system.
- Do not post spam and affiliate links, offensive posts, posts without content, or flames.
- Do not post in all caps.
- Do not abuse the mentions; they are not a tool to get faster responses.
- Do not seek legal/accounting advice on the forums. We are not lawyers/accountants, and if we were, we would then open our selves to liabilities.
- Do not threaten lawsuits or any other legal action on the forums.
Please note that this list is not exhaustive. Every post is judged on its own merits.
And that’s all. Enjoy your stay at the forums! Oh.. And, please let your colleagues know about us. Thanks.
