Were the changes starting to happen pre-Covid? Are things working as effectively as they might have been?Are staff more productive? What about staff mental health and well-being? Will the sector now change forever and what are the implications for regional growth in this sector and the opportunities internationally? Finally we will consider what makes this sector so special in the region and what will the future look like.
