Sunday 11th April 2021 - A message from our CEO, Dawn Forshaw

"Tomorrow is the day (for many) to open your clinic and get back to what you do best - performing some micro magic.  

I wish you a great memorable day.
From talking to lots of you it seems this third lockdown has been a tough one, but always remember that the sunshine always follows the rain.   Enjoy your busy days ahead and smile and let your credit card machines burn red hot.
I feel for you if your opening day is delayed.
 
We have updated our Back to Work document as there is lots to recap on and a few new things to read through, which you can by going to Saturday's post above.
Over the last 4 weeks, we have covered lots of support topics in our B-Ready programme. I'd like to thank my team for putting together what I hope has been informative and interesting content to help you on your journey back to work. If you have found the B-Ready programme worthwhile I'd be very grateful if you could take a few minutes to leave a review. 
 
 
Also, if you'd like us to continue delivering this type of content we have featured over the last 4 weeks, please do let us know what you have enjoyed or what we could add in the future. 
  
For those of you opening tomorrow 'good luck', we are a click away if you want a last-minute order, or a call away if there is something you need help with.
 
Best wishes,
 
Dawn x
