About you, your career, how you founded Riverside Shutters LTD

How does the coronavirus pandemic affect your business finances?

Did you have to make difficult choices regarding HR, and what are the lessons learned? 

Mike Maguire: No, we did not.

How did your customer relationship management evolve? 

Mike Maguire: We have taken on additional staff to deal with the increase in demand for enquiries and appointments.

Do you use any specific tools to be efficient?

    I’m actually a big fan of Mike Maguire and all that he has to say. I’ve been an avid listener of him for a relatively long time and always turn my ear when he has something to say.
