As planned, I retired at the end of March (except for a very small number of existing projects which I will see through to fruition) and will not be taking on any new work.
Since I started working as a consultant I have assisted a large number of centres and business centre groups and I know that the assistance I gave them has been useful.
The next few months will be very difficult and once the crisis is over, business centres will prosper again as companies spread their risk and both employers and employees have got used to, and embrace working remotely.
Over the past few years the flexible space sector has changed enormously and has been a force in developing businesses and entrepreneurial talent. It has been accepted into mainstream property yet has retained, and indeed, grown its focus on customer service.
I have thoroughly enjoyed working independently and will certainly miss being involved in the flexible space sector, as I am convinced that it will continue to grow again.
Many thanks to all of my clients, and to the exceptional people I worked with in Evans Easyspace and in the BCA.
I hope that you do not suffer too much during this crisis and continue to prosper.
