“I wanted to be able to showcase how well everyone had adapted and what challenges they had overcome.

“I knew that so many businesses had adapted really well to the pandemic and altered not only their way of working, but in some cases, they had completely changed their products and service offering whilst making sure that they were Covid-19 secure.

“Undoubtedly certain sectors have taken the brunt of it, including hospitality, travel and tourism.

“Yet some sectors have seen significant growth such as food manufacturing, IT, and agriculture to name a few.”
