It's pretty much guaranteed that the Olympic torch will bring some unnatural disruption when it comes jogging into town. There's likely to be staff absences as well as problems with travel and deliveries.
However, if you plan in advance you can make sure your business feels the benefit from the extra attention our country will be receiving during the Olympic months.
You can start your preparation on 15 May, when NatWest hosts a special event titled The 2012 London Olympic Games - How will your business cope?
Taking place at the University of East London, Docklands Campus from 5pm, the event will showcase talks from Transport for London, a HR professional and will provide inspiration for special products that your business could offer that may sell well during the games.
Places are limited; you can register and find out more about the event, here.
