With
our marketplace at a standstill, some of us coming out of lockdown and some of us
continue to confined to dwelling, this is our website for you – it’s a way to share tales
within just our local community, to sort solidarity and foster a perception of belonging.

Battling tooth and nail in Berlin 

Julian Jost: “In the limited-phrase, I’m fighting tooth and nail for Spacebase.”

With Berlin in lockdown, our workforce is
functioning from dwelling, and I’ve travelled back again to Cologne. It’s a bizarre time for
everybody, all of us mistaken-footed by the sudden turn of occasions across the world.
As enterprise vacation shuts down and people work from dwelling, our bookings have
obviously taken a strike.

 In the limited-phrase, I’m fighting tooth and nail for Spacebase. Together with our full network of bookers, house providers and companions, we’re finding methods. It’s a method, like everything, and it requires endurance and creative imagination, but we’re coming up with new methods, tips and exam out each and every angle we can arrive up with and we have a robust inspired workforce to set them into motion.

 Now is not the time to let up, for me
it’s the time to keep pushing. So we keep in contact, we do firm-huge phone calls
each and every morning and on Fridays, we continue to dangle out right after work for an on line beer.
We’re a resilient bunch and we keep every other laughing.

 Although the foreseeable future is uncertain, I’m also applying the time to assume strategically about where by we have to have to be in six months, in one particular year. What will the enterprise vacation and MICE marketplace glance like publish-corona? If behaviour will change then we have to have to be far-sighted enough to recognise this and continue to be agile, so we meet new needs and produce new prospects. Discovering clarity, making progress and offering steering to everybody all around in the course of the uncertainty is what helps me individually to continue to be on major and mentally healthier.

The enthusiasm issue: Resilience 

 Travel is about using measures into the
unfamiliar and exploring some thing inspiring together the way – exposing by yourself
to new adventures breaking with your individual outdated practices. You just cannot know how it will
turn out in advance. It’s scary but it’s the enthusiasm for the unfamiliar and the
journey to split guidelines and construct some thing new that acquired me into starting my
individual enterprise, and I want to keep harnessing that to deliver change to the MICE
and enterprise vacation industries.

I assume now is the time extra than at any time
to rethink what we have been doing so far but what I am learning in the course of
these occasions as properly is: Resilience is equally critical and it’s the
associations and partnerships that you construct across the a long time that’ll get you
via these occasions. I’m passionate to not let these down and aid out where by
probable so we all get via this.
