An interesting insight into what might happen next - sure to prompt much discussion.

Using the down time to work on your digital marketing? Should you be? Having difficulty working out where to start/end? It might start with digital marketing but these conversations can go anywhere!

Thursday 11th June: refresh, refocus, recovery and competition with Jude Franks and Cally Lyons
Refreshing your product offer, refocussing on different segments of your business, the recovery reality and what your competition really looks like.

Thursday 25th June - our final small group Virtual Cuppa: Open for Business - developing a new business post-COVID with Nadine Cove
What's it like to be developing and building a new business in the post-COVID world? What are we doing in our own space as we move through transition times?
