      Pros

      Until covid ripped the heart out of of the events industry Clarion was one of the stars. It had good grad programmes, a great social scene and some amazing events to work on. Hopefully the business will bounce back sooner rather than later.

      Cons

      Like most events companies the business is probably going to struggle for the first 6 months of 2021 with the pandemic restricting event attendance.
