A BHETA-facilitated video conference credit crisis forum aimed at DIY suppliers proved a hit with leading brands in the sector. Not only was the meeting welcomed for its topical Covid-19 content, but the Zoom facilitation attracted key players beyond the level of face to face meetings, proving the popularity of the online format as both effective and time-efficient.
This inaugural event took place as a video conference on Wednesday 8 April and delegates voted in favour of repeating the meeting once a fortnight.
The forum was open to credit control and finance professionals as well as managing directors and business owners from member companies working in the DIY sector. Hosted by Let’s Talk Credit, Experian and AON Credit Insurance Brokers the meeting included discussion of specific retail accounts’ payment terms, credit insurance and insolvency law as well as discussion as to how different companies are handling the impact of Covid-19.
