IP Futures were joined for virtual drinks on Thursday 20 August 2020 at 6 pm.
Our theme for the drinks was “post-covid expectations”.
Whether working from home or back at the office full-time or part-time, this event gave people an opportunity to share their thoughts on what they expect post-covid.
To help the thinking process, some of the questions discussed were:
- Is a return to (more) normal being planned at your work and if so, for when? And what is being planned?
- What would your ideal working arrangements look like?
- Has the coronavirus crisis changed your plans for the future? Eg are you considering moving, or changing employers?
- What have you learned (personally or professionally) over the past few months that you will apply in your life going forward?
The discussions were in small groups, allowing people to get to know their fellow attendees and share advice and support. We then reconvened a broader meeting to discuss some of the ideas that had been proposed in the smaller groups.
