Since our last episode of The Chairish Podcast, the world has completely shifted due to the coronavirus. On this episode of the Chairish Podcast — called Creativity During The Crisis — design industry insider Michael Boodro connects remotely with Anna Brockway, co-founder and president of Chairish; entrepreneur Peter Sallick, founder of the Design Leadership Network; and acclaimed designer Celerie Kemble to discuss ways for design firms to navigate the coronavirus crisis, and how, by joining forces, the design world can survive the pandemic—and thrive in its aftermath.

In this episode, our guests tackle:

  • How the design industry can evolve as we face this crisis together
  • Thinking about what this means for teams, including those within firms and also the artisans, tradesmen and partners that work closely together on projects
  • How to elevate your design business and advance into the future 
  • Operating remotely, exploring different technologies and how to best connect with your team while working from home 
  • Communicating with vendors and clients so you can continue to develop projects, even though times are uncertain 
  • The impact of the postponement and cancellation of design and industry events 
  • How Chairish is supporting the design community, brands and partners through the launch of the first-ever online Virtual Preview as well as features on the vintage dealers of High Point 
  • Breaking down short-term, medium-term and long-term strategies when thinking about your business
