We’re all in this together
These are unusual times
Well, then. Who could have predicted a wet market in Wuhan would impact workers of Lancaster in such a bewildering way?
Being in business is often about adapting to adversity. Coping with the unexpected. Responding to change.
Bold entrepreneurs do not lack spirit or ingenuity. There will be disruption of course. But when we pull together, we’ve shown we can rise to the challenge.
Every business across the country has a role to play. It’s business as unusual.
But we need to keep the wheels of commerce in motion and together we’ll get through this.
We’re here, even if we’re not there
We might all have to live with travel restrictions, quarantine or solitary confinement.
Whatever happens, we’re always happy to meet you online with a video chat.
• To arrange, visit Find a studio and choose your local team.
• Then press the big Call me button.
• Choose a phone call, video chat or email reply.
• Request a date and time, or as soon as we’re free.
We’ll phone or video call you back to talk through your ideas, screen share or work out a proposal.
