“Back in the early months of the pandemic when life and business seemed a little bleak, BESA’s webinars became a focal point of our day. They made us feel like we weren’t alone and gave us a sense of a virtual community. It was a platform to ask questions, hear other people’s views and hints and tips on how we could manage together through something that was unknown to us all.
At that point we were not members so we made it a priority once we started to trade again in May 2020, we set about accreditation. This was a challenge, as no accessors could travel so making a video and showcasing your own work doesn’t come easy to us in the West of Scotland, but we managed it successfully and after a few zoom calls with the auditor we were delighted to a achieve our accreditation.
We know what BESA has available and having a platform of services is a great comfort. We use the website which has a wealth of knowledge and we know we always have the local team to call on when required.”
