If your business is building sets and stages for outdoor events, what do you do when suddenly all events are cancelled because of COVID-19?

If you are the Australian manufacturer Stagekings, you get advice from a mate in Ireland and start building desks instead.

Nick Martin from Stagekings says since the company turned to manufacturing working-from-home desks its full-time staff has grown from pre-COVID-19 numbers. Today it employs 52 people: about 20 in its Kurnell warehouse and others working from home or doing deliveries.
