With
our sector at a standstill, some of us coming out of lockdown and some of us
continue to confined to house, this is our site for you – it’s a way to share tales
inside our group, to form solidarity and foster a feeling of belonging.

Battling tooth and nail in Berlin 

Julian Jost: “In the brief-expression, I’m fighting tooth and nail for Spacebase.”

With Berlin in lockdown, our crew is
doing work from house, and I have travelled back to Cologne. It is a unusual time for
every person, all of us incorrect-footed by the unexpected turn of functions throughout the world.
As organization travel shuts down and men and women operate from house, our bookings have
naturally taken a strike.

 In the brief-expression, I’m fighting tooth and nail for Spacebase. With each other with our overall network of bookers, house providers and associates, we’re finding remedies. It is a procedure, like something, and it can take endurance and creativeness, but we’re coming up with new methods, thoughts and exam out every angle we can come up with and we have a powerful inspired crew to put them into action.

 Now is not the time to permit up, for me
it’s the time to keep pushing. So we keep in touch, we do business-wide calls
every early morning and on Fridays, we continue to dangle out immediately after operate for an on line beer.
We’re a resilient bunch and we keep every other laughing.

 Although the potential is uncertain, I’m also employing the time to assume strategically about in which we have to have to be in 6 months, in one calendar year. What will the organization travel and MICE sector glance like publish-corona? If behaviour will change then we have to have to be much-sighted adequate to recognise this and stay agile, so we fulfill new calls for and acquire new alternatives. Finding clarity, creating progress and giving direction to every person all over all through the uncertainty is what helps me individually to stay on top and mentally balanced.

The passion thing: Resilience 

 Travel is about using actions into the
unfamiliar and getting one thing inspiring along the way – exposing by yourself
to new adventures breaking with your have previous behaviors. You just can’t know how it will
turn out in progress. It is frightening but it’s the passion for the unfamiliar and the
adventure to break regulations and develop one thing new that got me into commencing my
have organization, and I want to keep harnessing that to provide change to the MICE
and organization travel industries.

I assume now is the time extra than at any time
to rethink what we have been doing so much but what I am studying all through
these periods as perfectly is: Resilience is similarly critical and it’s the
associations and partnerships that you develop throughout the a long time that’ll get you
through these periods. I’m passionate to not permit all those down and help out in which
achievable so we all get through this.

Be aware: We
will be managing this site for as extended as we have to have to, to get us through this. If
