For individuals, businesses, organisations, and governments, 2020 has been a year like no other. And it’s one we’ll never forget.
While the word unprecedented will no doubt be an unwanted contender for word of the year, when history looks back on this moment, that’s exactly what will be said.
On 23rd March, we took a leap into the unknown. The nation faced up to a new reality. Of remote working, reconnecting with neighbours and showing our appreciation for the NHS.
And when it comes to the business community, there simply is no other fitting word.
Businesses faced unprecedented closures, dealt with unprecedented questions of how to keep their staff and customers safe, and performed unprecedented pivots. And now we could be facing an unprecedented recession.
But as we’ve begun to emerge from lockdown, tentative steps have been made to return to offices, the high street is open, and local businesses are once again top of the agenda.
The issue of how we navigate this new world is front and centre on every business agenda.
