As the UK economy begins to get moving again and businesses start to reopen, many are wondering what the 'new normal’ will look like. There are a multitude of considerations for businesses, from keeping customers and staff safe to marketing as lockdown restrictions ease. In partnership with Lawbite, Crunch, and Business Growth Coaches Network (BGCN), we recently held a webinar and live Q&A that takes a look at the key considerations for UK business owners to bear in mind when trading during the next stage of the pandemic.
We've included a recording of the live webinar above, for those who couldn't make it on the day. We've also worked with the panellists to put together a toolkit below, full of handy links and resources to help you get your business back up and running.
