With the current physical distancing regulations in place, many of us in the event industry quickly realised that, as social beings, this kind of isolation requires us to create a ‘new normal’, and to pivot to virtual to keep things going for now.

Elana Kruger, Marketing Manager at Church House Westminster, comments: “Describing the current lockdown as ‘social distancing’ is incorrect. It is physical distancing that we are practicing, because in reality we are more connected socially than ever before with the use of WhatsApp, Skype, Zoom and WebEx meetings. Another term that needs clarification is ‘working from home’. At the moment we are required to work from home during a crisis, which bears very little resemblance to the usual working from home as a flexible working option. I think for this reason we need to be very realistic and honest with ourselves in terms of personal expectations during this time.”.
