‘Move your car’

Give us the best piece of advice you can for companies thinking about organising that first post-lockdown face-to-face meeting.

I would reassure customers that we take our and their safety as a priority. I believe that companies really need their staff to get together and re-bond.

At Ashorne Hill we all exude positivity.  Give us your most positive phrase or saying.
