As borders continue to close and not just the UK, but the world takes an unexpected “time out”, we are thinking about all of those who are fighting the war against COVID-19 (including the blue light services, frontline NHS staff and teachers caring for key worker families), but also those fighting to keep their hospitality businesses afloat and alive until the world settles once more.

We are fortunate at Thread Consultancy that our client portfolio is broad and diverse, and many are still in need of our time and services. We are therefore running business as usual but via remote working of course.

But we understand that the world of hospitality is in extremely challenging times and may need some help during this unprecedented time.  So now we have taken time to steady our own course, we want to reach out to those in the industry to offer support – if you have a basic query, or something you think we can help with remotely, we will be pleased to speak with you free of charge. We must help each other through the tough time, to ensure we survive for the good! 

As British Airways eloquently articulated last week, when the world starts turning once again, once travel is permitted and social distancing measures relaxed, “it will be epic”. Families will be reunited, people will celebrate their friendships, communities will recognise their heroes – and the hospitality industry will do what it does best – provide spaces, comfort and service that surprises, delights and creates wonderful memories.
