It took a pandemic to improve how we do business

Just over a year ago, the words ‘COVID-19’, ‘lockdown’ and ‘social distancing’ had no place in our day-to-day diction. We did not live in bubbles or watch the Prime Minister wheel out health experts for daily updates. If we wanted to have dinner with friends, we simply invited them...
