We have not blogged for a while. Makes me think really. You start a business and somehow in the early stages you have time for creativity and to set aside time for PR and blogging. Then once you have customers and projects underway you drop the ball on this sort of thing. What takes over is pitching for new business, working hard on delivering for your customers and generally getting double busy.
I thought I would take a bit of time today to reflect on what we set out to do, how that’s going and also how things have changed a little since our idea was formed.
So, starting at the beginning…August 2020. Feels like a lifetime ago but of course that was only a little over six months ago. We wanted to be ready to help travel business’ restart after the closing of international borders and the grounding of all aircraft and cruise ships in the world. We were hopeful that we would see everything open in Q4 of 2020 and we’d be busy on a huge range of projects. As it turned out back then the days began to get darker as we entered lock down three. This meant all the projects we had lined up were also put-on hold. Our industries “peaks” was not to be.
By the way I am coming on to more positive stuff soon I promise!
As we entered 2021 with huge amounts uncertainty for our sector, high streets remained closed, it gave us time to reset and to focus on our two key partnerships that we forged. We are really pleased with the connections we have made, the deals signed and the overall progress we have made for both Obeo and Fast Pay Hotels. But do not just take our word for it you can see what both of the leaders of these business’s think by reading their review of our partnerships here https://www.flexireps.co.uk/gsa/
So on to the rest 2021 and what is next for us. We now have a roadmap by our government, the high streets will soon spring back into lie and hopefully soon will have a firm date for overseas travel. We are in advanced conversations with several brands and travel companies which had planned activity pre-lockdown and we hope will be using the services of Flexi Reps as we come out of this tricky period. We also have our newly forged partnership with Gail Kenny, we hope to secure a variety of contracts to get people back to work and back pounding the streets.

As we emerge from this lock down, we feel extremely optimistic about the year ahead and we hope you do to. Data and research suggest we are in for an ultra late market this year, make sure you don’t miss out, preparation and planning has never been more critical.
