For most of us, it has been an age since we hopped on a plane to go to a meeting. It’s still hard to fathom that a whole year has passed since the COVID pandemic hit us. Local restrictions, health and safety, and quarantine measures are not making it easy for us to get back to travel anytime soon.

If you have seen the movie "Pretty woman" with Julia Roberts, you will remember the scene where Julia goes shopping on Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills. She sees a nice dress in the shop window and enters the store. But the sales assistant does not like her look and tells her "I don’t think we have anything for you here."

Client retention is the centerpiece for any sound business strategy, which is not to say that growth and new client acquisition are not important, but retention is fundamental for long-term business success, and it can be a secret weapon for maintaining stability and profitability during economic downturns.

I had the pleasure of asking UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson a pertinent question at a Downing Street press conference.

As a Finance and Strategy leader, an important part of my job is trying to “see around corners” for our company – to know what is coming and how to react to it, but I must admit that a year ago I would not have predicted where we are today.

​The crystal ball of 2021 is a little cloudier than many travel buyers would have hoped at the start of the year but with the vaccine rolling out and the hard slog mostly behind us, there’s reason to anticipate a major uptick from 2020 levels, when our industry was operating at about 20% of its usual volume.

In these challenging times, out of step with ordinary life, many of us will take solace in the chance to reflect and celebrate with loved ones. But in the absence of the usual hallmarks - tales from holidays abroad, hugging older relatives or a party with the neighbors – how do we mark the end of the year?

31 Dec 2020 marks the end of the Brexit transition period. As we get closer to the end – the theme tune to the game show ‘Deal or No Deal’ is in the back of our minds - it’s natural to be concerned by the dizzying news emerging from negotiations in Brussels.
