Opportunities during the Coronavirus Pandemic
If you have found this page from a saved link or cached search, thank you for visiting but we have now decided to cease updating and will post any relevant new information on our social channels.
The industry has been brought to a rapid halt in the recent weeks and developments suggest this situation will unfortunately continue for several months.
In a bid to offer a little help to those of us with more time on our hands and take the enforced opportunity to up skill the workforce, like some of our industry colleagues we have put together some links below to websites and information that people may find of benefit.
We look forward to when this is all over, being back out in the fields and event halls all doing our stuff.
Take care and stay safe folks.
