It’s been 9 months since COVID-19 was declared a pandemic by the World Health Organisation and countries across the world went into lockdown.  The onset and spread have left few unaffected.

As large parts of the UK enter into a second lockdown, the PrOPEL Hub explores the impact of the pandemic on entrepreneurs and their enterprises in Part 2 of it’s ‘Thriving in Uncertainty’ Podcast Series.

  • What have been the key challenges and opportunities for entrepreneurs during Covid-19?
  • What advice and support networks are available for entrepreneurs?
  • How can businesses continue to respond and pivot in an uncertain and challenging operating environment?

Join Professor Eleanor Shaw and Professor Monder Ram in conversation with Ammo Talwar, CEO of Punch Records, and Susan Aktemel, Executive Director of Homes for Good, as they explore these themes and more.
