EDITOR ’ S NOTE

Hello and welcome to the latest edition of Intelligent CXO . Our business brand is growing by the day and it ’ s great to see it flourishing . Thank you for all the support so far and I hope you enjoy the sixth edition of the magazine .

As COVID-19 restrictions start to ease around the world , traditional workspaces are changing . For many businesses , hybrid-working is becoming the future . Our infographic , on page 18 , explores five trends for the post-COVID , hybrid workplace .
For businesses who are going back into the office , our Editor ’ s Question focuses on how to create a happy workplace , with industry experts from ImageNPay , WONGDOODY and 20ten offering their advice from page 21 .
Business strategy is a major focus for enterprises globally , after a period of so much change . Between COVID-19 and Brexit , it ’ s been a difficult few years for businesses , so we spoke to Jacqueline Watson , Managing Director at Citrefine , a leading , trusted and reliable partner to insect repellent manufacturers and brands , about how international businesses can navigate a post-Brexit world .
Meanwhile , many organisations have recognised that today ’ s sophisticated cyberthreats require new , advanced
approaches to prevention and defence . Bogdan Carlescu , Acting Cybersecurity Professional and Product Marketing Director at Bitdefender , tells us how – and why – security leaders can make EDR a key component of their overall cybersecurity strategy , as well as why they should prioritise this .
And in this month ’ s Business Profile , Ivan Harding , CEO and Co-Founder of Applaud , tells Intelligent CXO , how his company is providing a solution which makes digital HR simple for modern organisations .
However , while clear business strategies and digital transitions are important , employees are the heart of a business . In our first feature , we explore the importance of soft skills and how to master the art of human leadership .
We also have a round-up of all the latest business news from across our regions , while our ‘ intelligent ’ brands sections look at the latest news in finance , marketing , HR solutions and employee engagement .
