In August this year, we convened a panel of marketing and PR agency leaders to ask them about their experience of the pandemic and lockdown. What effect did it have on their businesses? How did they rise to the challenges? What changes have they made – and what are the likely longer-term effects of the massive shake-up everyone has been through? On the panel were: Sadie Groom, MD of Bubble Agency; Jennie Marwick-Evans, MD of Manor Marketing; Rob Ettridge, COO of Red Lorry Yellow Lorry; and David Lawrence, MD of Platform Communications.
