April was an exciting month as we started to see the first signs of, not only Spring, but normality on the horizon. As we navigate the next few months on the roadmap out of lockdown, our Chairman, Brian Morman, gave his insight into what the last year has meant for himself, and the company, in his recent interview with business support specialists, Circle2Success.
During the discussion Brian shares his experience of how Brunsdon Financial adapted its operations quickly when the pandemic struck, including taking the difficult decision of placing seven staff on furlough. However, we were quickly able to bring them back into the business full time.
Brian also discusses the expansion and growth the company has undergone over the last year, in spite of the recent health crisis, and that how in addition to welcoming back the seven team members who were originally placed on furlough, we’re proud and privileged to have also taken on 13 new employees since the start of 2020.
Making meaningful changes
The interview gave the opportunity for our Chairman to highlight the marked increase Brunsdon Financial has seen in clients wanting a change of direction after having time to reflect over the last 12 months, something which he believes ties in with more of us wanting to develop a sense of authentic purpose.
The conversation covers thoughts around personal growth, self-confidence and financial wellbeing; a topic we feel strongly about here at Brunsdon Financial. Brian speaks about the importance of wellbeing in all senses and how it is now permeating all areas of our lives, not just our bodies and minds.
You can also hear about Brunsdon Financial’s charitable foundation and the work Brian and our team have done to support this over the years, as well as details about his new upcoming book and future plans for the company.
