• How we managed the reopening from a staff perspective - there was a sudden shortage of staff and those that were still keen to work were dealing with all sorts of things; anxiety about the virus, their own financial position, relationship issues that had come to a head during lock down, isolation.

• How we dealt with the many staff that came out of lockdown with a fresh plan for their life, keen to head to a new employer or a new role, or even a new industry.

• Plans to manage the ongoing lack of backpackers, international students and other workers that were such an important part of the hospo industry.

• What we think the future looks like in relation to the hospo universe.
