AGCS launched our 'Broker-Beats' style podcast series to replace our face-to-face information forums while we continue to work remotely. The aim is to provide you with a short snapshot on a topic we think you will find interesting. We have decided to use this forum to update on items not directly linked to Covid-19. AGCS, like many companies and organisations, is already providing many resources in relation to Coronavirus so we wanted this to be something different in a short, easy to access format for everyone. Do let us know your feedback and if there are topics for future editions.
