#149 – Coronavirus 2.0

Chris EvansGarbage Collection, General

This week, Chris and Martin review their thoughts from the previous discussion on COVID-19 and what we have learned since then. In what is an incredibly fast-moving situation, the way in which we viewed the impacts of the global epidemic were perhaps a little naive. We take another look at how vendors will need to market and sell to their clients and how even virtual events may be impossible to implement with so many staff dispersed to their homes.

The ultimate outcome is that for the foreseeable future, our way of working, selling and messaging will change.
