Member Discussion Group – Getting back to the office post lockdown

June 17, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

We know that many of our members have been faced with operational challenges managing their independent research businesses during the COVID lockdown. Traditional office based teams have adapted to remote working business models, enabling them to continue publishing their insights and research to clients at a time when it is most needed.

As new cases of the virus are beginning to decline in many countries, respective Governments are beginning to ease lockdown measures and transition to a “new normal”.

Thoughts are now turning to reopening offices and the measures needed to provide COVID-safe environments for staff. Many of our members are now grappling with such operational issues, and whilst the situation in each member country will differ, the challenges of when and how offices can open are the same. We believe there is strength in our collective experience and our aim is to bring members together to discuss these issues.

We would therefore like to host our first Euro IRP Discussion Group, via Zoom, on Wednesday 17 June, at 3pm (BST).

The Discussion Group will be hosted by AlphaValue using Zoom and will be open to all members.  Tim Parker, Euro IRP Executive Director, will be chairing the meeting, which has been specifically designed to allow members to discuss their approach to, and decisions about, reopening their offices. Whilst the conversation may focus on key themes such as employee engagement programmes, communication strategies and risk management, we are proposing to offer this meeting without a fixed agenda to promote open and collaborative discussion.

Tim Parker will open the Discussion Group by introducing three Euro IRP members: Julia Ashworth, COO + CFO, Arete from London; Pierre-Yves Gauthier, Founding Partner, AlphaValue from Paris; and Jason Glazer, COO, Cornerstone Macro from New York, and will ask them to share their experiences, thoughts and concerns about the challenges they are currently facing.  We hope this “Three Cities Viewpoint” will provide three unique insights into how individual members are approaching the challenges of post lockdown business life and help to open up the Discussion Group to the wider membership, enabling us to discuss shared concerns and common themes.  We would stress that this is an open discussion session, and not a Q&A meeting, but if you have particular topics you would like to be discussed, then please let us know ahead of the meeting.
