Covid-19 & the UK economy: new tools for what comes next

Covid-19 & the UK economy: new tools for what comes next

Watch our expert panel discussion on demand to explore the impact of COVID-19 on the economy and what we can expect to see next together with the Greater London Authority, the Growth Company and Sowen.

The impact of Covid-19 has been felt across industries, geographies, economies and communities. While it is too early to draw any final conclusions as to the extent of the impact, as 2020 draws to a close, now is a good time to reflect on what has been a rather unusual year.

We invite you to take a look at the on-demand panel discussion with Richard Jeffery, Director of Business Growth at the Growth Company, Iva Figueiredo, Principal Policy Officer, Regeneration & Economic Development at the Greater London Authority, Ori Carmel, CEO of Sowen and Data and Technology Consultant at Bloomberg Associates, moderated by Justin Fitzpatrick, Co-founder and CEO of DueDil.

During this session speakers explored some of the most interesting aspects of the research published in the recent report: “Economic Impact of COVID-19 on London’s Small and Medium-sized enterprises (SMEs)”. The study, conducted by Bloomberg Associates for and in close collaboration with the Greater London Authority (GLA), presents an innovative public sector approach to examining the impact of a large scale health crisis on the economy to an unparalleled level of detail. Panelists took a closer look at how the methodology used in the research can be applied to other areas of industry and public policy.

Panelists also touched on the resources made available to businesses and what could be done to better support those businesses that need help the most. They discussed the current situation at the frontline, shared insights into how businesses are operating in the current economic climate and what they are looking to do in the near future.

By watching the panel on demand, you will discover:

  • How the UK economy has changed over the year
  • How Covid-19 has impacted the UK’s SME economy
  • What measures policy makers have taken to mitigate this impact
  • Expectations for recovery in 2021
  • How policy makers can use data & technology for better decision-making
