Collaborate SW Survey

By November 9, 2020January 26th, 2021Member News & Updates

Collaboration is a term that has been gaining increasing traction since lockdown, as business leaders have reached out, connected, supported and learnt from each other, often in new ways, in tough times.

New business organisation Collaborate South West is running a short survey to understand perceptions around collaboration, the learnings that have happened during lockdown and how it is shaping the South West business landscape in 2020 and beyond.

Mandy Swift, co-founder of Collaborate South West, said: “In a challenging year new methods of working have emerged in a very short space of time, within and between organisations. Collaborate South West was launched off the back of this new momentum and we’re keen to find out the approaches being used by businesses. We will share the insight with the business community. It should make for fascinating reading.”

All survey participants will be entered into a draw to win a home virtual meeting kit, including halo light and lapel mic. 

The results will also be shared via a report and on social media, and businesses with great examples of collaborations making a real impact will be celebrated and showcased.
