How COVID-19 is Affecting Business: Philip Waddy

Some personal thoughts from industry colleague and managing partner of Oxfordshire-based West Waddy ADP. Philip Waddy discusses the impact of COVID-19 on business.

Philip’s insight into the ways in which we have all had to change our working practices resonates strongly with MYA. Staying connected during this challenging time is (on the whole) easy. However, the ‘touchy feely’ approach of ‘the designer’ has had to be put on hold. We need to find other ways to interact with our work and gain fresh inspiration.

One thing that we must not lose post COVID-19 is the environmental, humanistic and productivity benefits of this brave new world.

We look forward to reading your memoirs Philip!
