I had the great privilege recently to host and record six podcasts with UAP, a hugely successful Manchester company who are market leaders in the field of door hardware. They have an unrivalled reputation for product excellence, innovation and quality, a fact which shone through as I chatted with directors and staff about different topics and challenges faced in a modern business through unprecedented times.
Whether or not you’re in this industry, are an interested property person or run a business yourself, there’s a huge amount of information in the podcasts which cross over from industry to industry. I enjoyed hosting all of the sessions and learned a lot, listening to and talking with such educated, experienced and entertaining professionals.
I hope you enjoy them too, Sian x
