It should go without saying that we, along with everyone else in society, are entirely indebted at the moment to those vital organisations and their staff who are supporting us and keeping us going through challenging times.
The sector where COVID-19 is having the most obvious impact is healthcare, but we know all too well the more recent knock-on effects the pandemic has had on education and local government services.
We are privileged to work with senior leaders in these sectors throughout the year at our events – they support us by attending, speaking and engaging with suppliers to make our events valuable and insightful.
With so much negativity and uncertainty in our daily lives, we wanted to put some positivity out there and recognise some things we have seen our community and network doing to rise to the challenge – both public sector and supplier side.
Over the next few weeks, we’ll be sharing examples of great things the wider business community and public sector are doing to support vital services and vulnerable people through this crisis on our social media to highlight fantastic work people are doing and to spread more positivity in what could be a dark time for everyone.
Do you have an example you’d like to call out on? Contact us and we’ll feature it on our Twitter and LinkedIn.
Thank you to everyone who is working to support children, the elderly and our wonderful NHS staff.
