‘How it started, how it’s going’


Free for members

03 Feb 2021 — Online


Join us for what we hope will be a lively event as we ask our panellists to look back to March 2020 and since, to discuss ‘What happened?’.

With whatever powers of prediction they may have, our panellists will then give a view of what trends they think are coming both in the short-term of the next few months, but also their view on longer term changes that may happen as a result of this pandemic.

The event is free for members to join. £50 +VAT for non-members.
