We are excited to announce the launch of Autotech Talks, our new series of video interviews with the automotive industry experts. With a comprehensive line-up of guests adding their insight and take on the current issues and challenges, our interviews are meant to inspire the debate on what the post-coronavirus future might hold for the motor trade and promote collaboration within the sector.
In the first of our series, ‘Autotech Talks’ Gavin White speaks to Andy Savva, The Garage Inspector, on the effect the Covid-19 pandemic is having on the independent garage sector.
Cutting through the ‘noise’ around financial support, and the ever-changing Government packages, Andy encourages garage owners to lean on their accountants and seek HR support from trade organisations.
With tactics to help garages claim the grants they are entitled to, Andy urges bosses to use the lockdown wisely, show leadership and sustain contact with their biggest asset – staff. Sharing strategic tips on how businesses can be productive during lockdown and, as thoughts turn to re-opening, Andy also discusses the potential new ‘normal’ we may all find ourselves in.
Stay tuned for future episodes!
