What advice do they have for anyone thinking of embarking on resilience and recovery activity or repurposing their business?
“The best advice I can give is to be really honest with your staff, your clients and suppliers, especially when it comes to cashflow. Pick up the phone and be proactive, let them know you’re here to stay and what your plans are. It will pay dividends both personally and professionally.”
What are Global Infusion Group’s plans for the foreseeable future?
“With the global events market in lockdown, we’re predicting a slow return but we have the capacity to deliver much more and are keen to support the national effort and bring our expertise and kit to help those on the front line.” Through Buckinghamshire Business First’s connection with the Mutual Aid Team at Buckinghamshire Council, GIG has responded to a request to support much needed catering in the local care sector.
The Global Infusion Group HQ in Chesham, Buckinghamshire, is currently being kept operational by the senior management team. “We have a floor each!” explains Bonnie May. “We are planning to light the whole building blue to celebrate the key workers on the front line on Thursday 7th May and then red, white and blue for VE Day on Friday 8th May”.
