The team shared updates on how COVID 19 restrictions are affecting them and their clients, while team members and visitors also gave updates on what options are available to SMEs and advice on how business owners can, and should, be dealing with the current crisis.
Cath Wallace of Kandula Consulting, a change management specialist, is seeing a greater need than ever for her skills and so she’s offering a free initial consultation to help business owners understand more about the challenges and what they can do.
“The impact of the coronavirus crisis will mean many changes for many companies. I can help businesses think about and plan for the changes in their workforce, their culture, their productivity and their revenue.
“Basically, I can help business owners who will face key questions that include: How do you set yourself up legally to have the right people, in the right work, in the right type of work?”
Meanwhile, Andrew Myall, a Mortgage Consultant with Dentons Wealth, fed back that many property auctions are particularly buoyant at this troubled time.
“The main difference is that they are being brought on line with 360 degree view and walk in videos along with more detailed information and legal packs.”
He also explained that the problem for many is funding because many UK surveyors have temporarily closed their doors. However, his company has access to full surveys if a property is vacant, obtaining funding of up to 70% loan to value for most property types for short term financing – and even up to 90% in some cases.”
