TC Update – October 2020
Since the implementation of COVID-related restrictions TC’s physical space has, for the most part, been on hiatus. Although we continue to provide support to long term clients, this time has offered the opportunity to review and revamp. We’re exited about things to come and invite you to connect with us to offer your thoughts and suggestions. We’re always interested in collaboration, whether physically or virtually!
