Jul 09, 2020, 08:00 AM

ITT Hub’s “Lunch with Leon” hosted by Leon Daniels OBE, features Professor David Begg, President of the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport. Leon chats with Professor David Beg, Chief Executive, Transport Times.

In the second edition of Lunch with Leon, Leon Daniels OBE hosts Professor David Begg – author, academic, advisor to secretaries of state, conference entrepreneur and self-confessed “general no good troublemaker”. 

Leon and Professor Begg discuss how far and how deeply the legacy of where we are now will track into the future. With five years of change compressed into the six-month period of the pandemic, what will be the effects of WFH, online shopping, reduced business travel and even a four-day week? Public transport is being used for essential travel only but there is continued demand for low cost summer holidays by air. Is this the death of business travel and national airlines? How will the current clean air of our cities fast forward our thinking in their future planning? Is the case for franchising bus travel outside London weaker or stronger now? How will it all pan out on a human level? Human beings or human doings?
