Fastnet Focus Q1 2021


Welcome to our first issue of Fastnet Focus 2021:
This is a look back at some of our highlights from Quarter 1 which we are delighted to share with you. It is an exciting and rewarding time to be partnering with many life sciences clients who have played a pivotal role in the response to Covid-19 and continue to demonstrate remarkable resilience and growth.
Although we are living through exceptional times, the arrival of Spring and the vaccine roll-out programme gives us renewed hope for brighter days ahead. It’s easy to understand why Seamus Heaney’s consoling words have appeared in many a narrative during this pandemic:
“So long for air to brighten,
Time to be dazzled and the heart to lighten”
Please get in touch with me or any member of the Fastnet team if we can support you in any way.

All the best,
