Online meetings are now the norm during 2020 and lockdowns and there was no exception for the EWIF South meeting for November 2020 which took place over Zoom. Kate Matthews of Boddy Matthews Solicitors chaired the meeting. Despite not being able to get together in person, the meeting was a great success. The wide range of attendees included franchisors, franchisees, franchise consultants, legal advisors and bankers specialising in franchising. All participants offered helpful insights into their own business experiences of the pandemic and provided useful advice for others. We look forward to the next meeting in the New Year 2021!
