Vacant Properties

  • Thu 15 Jul 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm
  • Online

In a vacant property any damage is likely to be exacerbated by the length of time it takes for the damage to be noticed and repaired. Covid-19 and the introduction of national lockdowns meant that 2020 saw a dramatic increase in the number of buildings being left vacant for an extended period, with little or no warning and time to prepare and has meant that de-commissioning of the building and services were not undertaken.

WEBINAR - How to Raise your Visibility for Career Success in uncertain times

  • Wed 09 Jun 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm
  • Zoom - Webinar
    • Susan Heaton-Wright, Superstar Communicator

How is it that some people rapidly climb the career ladder whilst others – who might be equally as good, remain at a lower level? Having studied very successful people; watching their behaviour, actions and attitudes, I have identified key engagements these successful people do in order to be visible to decision makers. And in this time where cuts are being made, you want to be the go to person: the person who is positively noticed – and I don’t mean the loudest person: the last person standing when difficult decisions are made.
