COVID 19 – Our work going forward

By | COVID 19 | No Comments
As we work together to navigate the rapidly changing environment in the context of COVID 19, we look forward to putting our best creative minds together to meet the exceptional challenges ahead. Strategies have been put in place to ensure our team is equipped to work from home. Until the situation is resolved, we will continue to rethink strategies to effect a ‘business as usual’ approach. We are extremely excited about the work currently in discussion, on the ‘boards’ and in construction – bring it on – we are ready!
To all of our colleagues and friends, we wish you good health in the workplace and at home.
