As Dubai prepared to relax rules around lockdown, Studio N’s Managing Director Alexander Holler hosted special guests Sarah-Jane Grant from LXA and Patrick Fallmann from umdasch – The Store Makers for a virtual round table to discuss business strategies for a post-pandemic UAE.
The conversation considers evolving business practices, such as new workplace environments, remote working and maximising cloud technologies, and adjusting leadership styles and mindsets. Retail specialist Patrick Fallman touches on the new retail landscape and what designers can do to preserve the traditional store experience, along with implementing products and solutions to help protect staff and customers. And, from a hospitality standpoint, expert Sarah-Jane Grant chats about the F&B sector and the challenges that face smaller restaurants.
