today’s task

Today I need to work on the following; I am giving myself 10min to write this plan and to start taking action.

I need to go gym at some point today so I am thinking of doing all the manual works now; such as payment to the employees, their expenses.

then i need to tackle a few procedures that needs to be resolved as well as training.

The first type of video presentation i need to produce is a health and safety video for on site

  • H&S for domestic
  • H&S for construction
  • General use of equipment 
  • General use of vans
  • General scanning and topographical survey
  • General setting out activities

 

I also need to produce a procedure for method statement, etc…

here is a list of the procedures i need to put in place

  • Sending quotes online
  • Capturing expenses
  • Asset tagging
  • Folder and file structure on the machine
  • Prepare payslips for employees +expenses

something else i need to achieve over this holiday is to setup a new corporate website for the company. I need to find a good and fast theme with themebuilder or whatever.. We need to have the ability to upload t

 

 

so let’s recap this whole thing;

  • I will process the payment of the contractors
  • I will then process and send the payslips for the current staff
  • Once done I will hopefully be able to export the files that I need from Scene
  • gather some reading/viewing material for GYM. Probably on lynda.com
  • I will then go gym, read up

 

Need to work on my health

I need to fix my health, its not to its shape and i keep binge eating late night. This needs to change drastically. We need to remove all these ice creams and cakes out of the house.
i am also scared of looking after the business for two weeks. It’s going to be tough, but we have to work on it.

its going to be strange and difficult but I. Think with good planning we can take a look at it.

 

quite annoying really

Today has been hectic. I would have loved that something went well, very well. It feels its always a never ending roller coaster.

We need to improve our quality.

The things we need to do tomorrow is to review the work load and see where we all are. we need to look at all the projects, any outstanding and any thing that needs to be resourced up.

some quick todo list that i need to do tonight:

  • I need to re-align the pointcloud. I need to re-export the project we had in ikenham, export into the correct format (rcp). . //this is done.
  • I need to export oriental road to see if Magnasoft or Aggie can work on the drawings to help us. —update this is currently being exported…. and I am going to send it to Aggie to take a look at.
  • I need to export ryelane project so that they can re-review it tomorrow.
  • I need to see if I can go scan the land at holland park tomorrow during the day.

 

 

Promotional video? my attempt in writing the script

I have also been writing a script for a promotional video for our website. its getting complicated at the moment because of the complexity of the sales and me not knowing how to write a video script that will work.

at the moment free content found online isn’t great. they are all produced by companies trying to sell you their services. Which are not full complete guides on creating promotional videos.
I’ve had to refer to lynda.com to get ideas and help in writing scripts.

My plan of action onthis is to look/find for questionnaires that helps video production companies to produce their clients promotional videos . They are easily found online. I’ll then use those to create the template

At the moment there are a couple of ideas floating in my mind in terms of promotional videos I want to create. First thing we need to focus on is creating promo video for things we are currently providing. Most of our customers are ready to buy and they ‘kind of’ know what they want. The only difference is that they are looking for a competitive price. our USP is that our service allows us to produce many drawings in one survey. This is something that is hard to explain on paper and can be done verbally and even harder visually.

here is a list of questions I found in a questionnaire/guide

  • What’s the quick elevator pitch?
  • Who is the target Audience?
  • What specific problem are you solving?
  • What are 3 key benefits you would like to highlight?
  • How does your product or service work?
  • What tone would you like the video to use?
  • Do you have specific ideas or requests for the visual style? if not, just say so, and we would be happy to suggest a creative direction that we think is best.
  • Is there a call to action we should mention?

 

What we probably want to do is show them what they are getting. for example we have a service called MBS which does building plans. What we could do in this instance is potentially show them what a MBS is and what we could work on.

 

ISO9001

I’ve been working on the ISO 9001 today and we need to implement the core procedures written on paper into the word document. I have not had time to give this to office manager and or to even explain this to her. I think the best thing to do for now is to finish the risk register and then finish writing up a procedure using the template. Once we’ve done that I can show it to my office manager to complete the rest of the written procedure.
