CFJLIVE: Entrance matting next up in new online workshop
CFJLIVE, CFJ's latest innovation in the wake of Covid-19, presents entrance matting featuring Forbo Flooring Systems and Coba on 15 December. After a short introduction from CFJ, Garry Bateman, technical manager at Forbo, will discuss the technical intricacies of entrance matting.
CFJLIVE launched on Tuesday 6 October and will soon be followed by more online workshops.
Perhaps Covid-19 will go down in history as much more than just a member of the coronavirus family. Yes, it’s caused us tremendous damage and tragic loss in terms of the economy and human life, and while this will never be forgotten, it’s also changed us in other ways. Some say that working from home instead of the office is a genie that can’t – or won’t – be put back into the bottle. Others contend that next time we’re warned about the threat of a pandemic, we’ll listen instead of ignoring the warnings – and that we’ll be more prepared for one.
And then there’s the technological aspects, the most obvious of which is Zoom. How else could we have stayed in touch with our colleagues and kept abreast of developments in the virtual office? But Zoom is only one of several new ways that people are doing business. Hopin is another one we should be paying attention to – without this software we probably couldn’t, for instance, have delivered the virtual CFJ/CFA Awards to our audience.
CFJ launched its first live online workshop involving wood finishes under the auspices of CFJLIVE.
The workshops usually start at 11am and last for just over an hour with a technical question-and-answer session afterwards. We’ll publish a short round-up of the workshop in future print editions.
To gain access to future workshops, watch your inbox for the link to register to the Hopin event. Each demonstration lasts between 15-20 minutes with a technical Q&A afterwards with manufacturers. We’ll also be looking at ways to obtain questions from attendees so that manufacturers can answer them directly.
