Running a business isn’t always a local operation. With the development of technology and communication applications, communicating with international clients and colleagues is a lot easier.
Here are a few tips on how to manage communications on a global scale.
- Consider language barriers that could present a challenge and have a plan ready for translation
- Research appropriate business practices that could differ from your cultural norms
- Take note of the time zone difference for improved communication and productivity
- Set up a framework for communications, using various online tools and applications

During the week we profiled the following two businesses in our Local Business Spotlight feature.
Meet Michael Janisch, the musical genius that founded Whirlwind Recordings, a business that has released an eclectic catalogue of over 160 albums in the past decade. Whirlwind Recordings has provided an opportunity for both established masters and undiscovered stars to launch their musical career.
As quoted by BBC Radio 2, “Whirlwind Recordings is the new label of the moment, releasing a diverse cross-section of excellent music.” Find out more about Whirlwind Recordings on their Instagram page or their website.
Friday’s Local Business Spotlight shines the light on the UK’s only professional Malaysian Gamelan Group. Directly translated, “Kayu Gangsa” means “wood and bronze”, which are the two elements used to create beautiful percussion music. The group performs at several celebratory events, including the Darlo Drum Festival which is pictured here!
Kayu Gangsa is made up of a group of professional musicians that perform both traditional Malaysian music, as well as contemporary compositions. Want to learn more? Visit their Instagram page and website.
