Lincoln based international property firm Harriet & George opened a new office in Punjab, India.

COVID-19 has not made doing international business easy, however Toby Taylor from Harriet & George Legal Consultants has bucked the trend to expand their portfolio. 

Toby said: “We knew early on this year wasn’t going to be easy, so we grabbed the 2020 business season with both hands and shook a few lumps of gold out of it. We have never been shy about getting in to a fight.

“Despite COVID-19’s nasty little appearance stage left we were not deterred.”

H&G have joined forces with the Chima family to open their first Asian office, which is due to open in Ludhiana (Punjab) in January 2021.

“Joining forces with the Chima Dynasty is an honour. Grandfather Chima was the personal body guard to the President of India and the family are now serious players in Indian real estate development.”

H&G will be advising, locating and managing all of the Chima groups property holdings and all new European business from next year. 

Over the past year, the outbreak of COVID-19 has highlighted that STEM-related practical skills are more important than ever. Experts in science, technology, engineering, and maths have played a crucial role in the global response to the pandemic, demonstrating the key capabilities we need to nurture and encourage in the younger generation.

Lincoln UTC has a mission to help students with an interest in STEM subjects to gain the skills required to secure their future.

Students join the UTC in year 10 or year 12 to study a specialist curriculum of innovative technical subjects geared towards building the foundations for an exciting career in the highest paying industries.

Life at Lincoln UTC is very different to a ‘normal’ secondary school. Students are expected to dress smartly in business attire rather than a uniform, and effectively manage themselves without a bell.

The working day is longer, but teachers do not set homework. Most importantly, students choose to be at the UTC, and the learning environment is mature, calm, and purposeful.

The UTC encourages students to connect their learning to the bigger picture through real life experiences.

Earlier this year the nationwide shortage of PPE prompted students to put their engineering skills into practise by utilising 3D printing to manufacture face shields.

Most recently, they have been studying the scientific processes behind proposed COVID-19 vaccinations.

Applications are open to join Lincoln UTC in September 2021. Book a personal tour by calling 01522 775990. For more information visit www.lincolnutc.co.uk or email [email protected].
