BIMA Huddle – How do we get back to work and what will the new normal look like?

29 Jun 2020

Introducing BIMA Huddles – a fresh, local take on digital issues?

One of the advantages of being a nationwide digital community is we get to hear voices from every part of the industry in every part of the country. And if listening to those voices has taught us anything over the last few weeks, it’s that returning to business as usual is a very different experience depending on where you’re based. That’s why we’re launching BIMA Huddles. Each edition will be recorded and you’ll hear from people across the industry, each with new perspectives to share.

For our first BIMA Huddle, we brought together a panel of Manchester’s digital strategists, recruiters, developers and founders to explore how the city’s digital businesses are managing the return to the workplace. They discussed how the current situation is forcing them to adapt. And they look at the unexpected opportunities of lockdown.
