How are you doing things differently during lockdown?
We are all working remotely, but it has proven highly effective. Business has carried on …. We've taken onboard how to use new tools such as Microsoft teams and organising Zoom meetings. We have also broken into the world of the ‘webinar’, something we've never done before!
What have you learned about yourself and your team during this time?
The property world is a very sociable one, meeting and talking to people and networking all the time. Even during lockdown we've still managed to connect and stay connected with clients and colleagues across the UK. We've learnt that good communication is crucial - our team virtual get together quiz night every Friday is something to look forward too!
What positives (if any) have come from working differently?
