Welcome to the New Normal Podcast

by Yvonne Harris

Welcome to the new normal, a time defined by rapid technological advancements, new ways of working and living, and an era where ‘unprecedented’ is now ordinary. With so much change happening there’s never been more to talk about, which is why we’ve taken the opportunity to launch our new technology podcast.

Why did we decide to launch a podcast?

At Powell Software, we work hand in hand with companies in their digital transformation projects. This closeness has given us a 360° view of the new world of work: distance working, hybrid workspaces, and the growing importance of collaborative projects. Projects with our clients and partners have also given us a broader view of the role of technology in an evolving world.

We launched this podcast not to talk about us or what we do, but to give the stage to our network, who are experts in their respective fields. This podcast is all about navigating the new normal and explores topics from how our use of physical spaces has evolved to smart cities and the future of work.

Welcome to the new normal podcast, a space to explore the latest technology, the future of work, and how the unprecedented became ordinary.
