WiT Community Blog: Julian Jost, co-founder & CEO, Spacebase

our industry at a standstill, some of us coming out of lockdown and some of us
nevertheless confined to house, this is our site for you – it’s a way to share stories
inside our local community, to kind solidarity and foster a feeling of belonging.

Preventing tooth and nail in Berlin 

Julian Jost: “In the small-time period, I’m fighting tooth and nail for Spacebase.”

With Berlin in lockdown, our crew is
operating from house, and I have travelled back again to Cologne. It is a unusual time for
anyone, all of us erroneous-footed by the unexpected switch of situations across the world.
As business journey shuts down and men and women function from house, our bookings have
certainly taken a hit.

 In the small-time period, I’m fighting tooth and nail for Spacebase. Together with our whole community of bookers, house vendors and companions, we’re locating alternatives. It is a course of action, like nearly anything, and it can take endurance and creativity, but we’re coming up with new techniques, tips and take a look at out just about every angle we can arrive up with and we have a solid determined crew to place them into action.

 Now is not the time to allow up, for me
it’s the time to preserve pushing. So we preserve in touch, we do firm-wide calls
just about every morning and on Fridays, we nevertheless cling out soon after function for an on-line beer.
We’re a resilient bunch and we preserve each individual other laughing.

 Although the foreseeable future is unsure, I’m also applying the time to assume strategically about wherever we have to have to be in 6 months, in one year. What will the business journey and MICE industry seem like article-corona? If behaviour will improve then we have to have to be far-sighted adequate to recognise this and remain agile, so we fulfill new demands and develop new options. Getting clarity, making progress and supplying assistance to anyone close to all through the uncertainty is what will help me personally to remain on prime and mentally nutritious.

The enthusiasm factor: Resilience 

 Travel is about getting steps into the
unidentified and getting a thing inspiring together the way – exposing by yourself
to new adventures breaking with your own previous habits. You simply cannot know how it will
switch out in advance. It is scary but it’s the enthusiasm for the unidentified and the
adventure to break regulations and establish a thing new that acquired me into starting up my
own business, and I want to preserve harnessing that to carry improve to the MICE
and business journey industries.

I assume now is the time a lot more than at any time
to rethink what we have been accomplishing so far but what I am understanding all through
these occasions as effectively is: Resilience is similarly crucial and it’s the
associations and partnerships that you establish across the years that’ll get you
as a result of these occasions. I’m passionate to not allow individuals down and aid out wherever
achievable so we all get as a result of this.

Be aware: We
will be jogging this site for as prolonged as we have to have to, to get us as a result of this. If
you would like to lead, please deliver your essays to
Siew Hoon. Deliver photographs also, it’s your tale.
