Beyond the crisis:

How the world does business has changed fundamentally in a very short space of time. We look forward to the day when face-to-face meetings can resume but we also recognise that the post-coronavirus world will be very different.

At Airmic, we have been inspired by the positive response of our members to virtual networking and learning. We have seen record attendance at our online Academies and events and – we have reached new audiences around the UK and beyond.

While physical events and networking will remain an important part of Airmic’s offering, we are working hard to capture the lessons we are learning and how the digital experience can continue to form part of the Airmic experience.

Our member views are extremely important. Please email us at enquiries@airmic.com with your feedback on our digital transformation or with suggestions for future changes.
