Like A Business Continuity Plan, But Bigger

We Need Assurance

We Need Assurance

Mar. 14 | A lot has happened in two weeks.   When we last met, we had just fired off a letter to the Department of Trade and Industry, requesting an urgent meeting to discuss measures to mitigate what we believed would be the long-term impact of the COVID-19...
