First up is the topic of the pedestrianizing of central London. Frederick explains that London is one of the only capital cities in the world not to already have this in place and hopes that it will stay for the post Covid future. And of course, the less positive topic of the 10pm curfew, Jennifer Cochrane comments that not only does the curfew have a negative impact on the industry, it is also dangerous to people’s health, with groups piling onto a busy tube, buying cheap alcohol from the shops, and drinking at home.
Property expert Morris Greenberg gives an insightful talk about the changes in the types of property buyers are looking for in London at the moment, with the emphasis being on outdoor space. With many restaurants sadly having to close their doors permanently, that leaves many London venues, with fully fitted out kitchens, vacant and ready for a new buyer. Is 202o the year of the start-up? Are we gong to see a huge change in the types of restaurants we see in Central London?
It’s time for Jennifer Cochrane to take the stage, talking us through an insightful presentation, explaining her businesses Getahead and Work Inspired. Mental health in the work place is now even more important than ever, with businesses having to adapt to the ‘new normal’ and many people fearing for their jobs. Work Inspired helps companies to develop a bespoke wellness program that works with in their business.
The Embargo App has had some fantastic press coverage recently, Frederick Szydlowski talks through his plans for the business and how freezing payments through lockdown, has helped to retain his customer loyalty.
