088 Our Working Environments Due to COVID-19: An Interview with Simon Townsend Part 1 of a Two-Part Interview

In this episode, Christina Martini and Simon Townsend discuss:

  • How Simon combined his degrees in Technology and Marketing to great success.
  • How technology is driving business growth. 
  • The effect of COVID-19 on working from home and the future of the working environment. 
  • Home working and workforce culture. 


Key Takeaways:

  • In many parts of the world, there has to be a mindset shift to moving to a work at home model. 
  • As work at home has moved from a very temporary measure, there is a shift to a more long-term work from home strategy as the current situation continues and thoughts to future situations arise.
  • Creativity is different in person than it is on a Zoom or other video call. 
  • Find ways to give the person you are talking to all of your attention rather than sitting in front of your emails and monitors. 


“Don’t feel that because you are working from home that everything has to be done in front of a laptop or a PC and on a Zoom call. There are still other ways in which we can communicate.” — Simon Townsend
