Our most unusual episode yet in that I am going from host to interviewee. I recorded an episode last week with a friend, accountant and fellow podcast host ‘Warren Munson’ from Evolve.
Warren interviewed me about the impact of the Coronavirus closure on my personal hotel and restaurants. Having interviewed many people on similar topics in the past few weeks Warren was happy for me to share this story on my own podcast. A number of listeners and contacts have been in touch recently asking how things are going at Urban Guild, so this seemed the ideal way to provide an update.
I touch on the transition period from opening my most recent restaurant about 10 months ago, ramping up ready for summer and then the shock, both mentally and financially of being closed by the government. I also discuss some early thoughts on ongoing government support as we try and find a way to trade out of this disaster, once we are allowed to open, and what that may look like.
Please do check out Warren’s other episodes and my thanks to him for letting me share this audio. I hope you find it interesting.
