In episode 39 of the Growth Series podcast, Nadine Edwards, Corporate Account Manager at Accord, is joined by Paul Lewis, National Development Manager at Mansfield Building Society (MBS). Paul is also part of The Power of 8 lenders cooperative which was set up with the aim of bringing regional lenders from across the UK together to share insight, best practice, and support to brokers. Together, Nadine and Paul explore what changes Mansfield Building Society and The Power of 8 have seen during Covid-19.
This is the fourth episode in a special series looking at ‘the new normal’ and how intermediaries are coping with trying times. Paul takes us through how his days have changed, his best advice for intermediaries during this time, and how he is coping with this new way of working.
Paul and Mansfield Building Society have found that communication and transparency have been key to their business during the lockdown. They are currently operating in what they call ‘business unusual’ and Paul shares a few insights into how MBS and The Power of 8 are preparing for returning ‘business as usual.’
