I’m in a quandary. Would you run a face-to-face awayday for a dispersed UK/international team in September?

We're having a real debate about whether to stick with our in-person awayday at the end of September (rescheduled from July, rescheduled from June). That is, assuming we even have a choice and there isn't another lockdown.

I’m proud of RedQuadrant

I try to make these posts interesting, challenging, accessible. But today I'm just going to be proud of my company for a minute here. What's your big achievement at the moment?
