Grace Blue are a global executive search firm that specialise in leadership roles within advertising, media and marketing. Back in March when Covid-19 hit, understandably, job briefs started slowing down so they decided to see how they could help and give back to the industry. 

They launched TRANSITION which is a free, online hub that connects displaced talent and here in this chat with Suki, Grace Blue's CEO, Ian Priest, talks more about how it came about and how best to get the most out of it. 

We were lucky enough to be joined by Grace Blue's Managing Partner, Helen Duffy, last week on our Virtual Coffee Morning: The art of transition - finding a path to a new role - and you can watch it on demand right here
