Electrical #TradesTalk takeover

Electrical #TradesTalk takeover

This week’s #TradesTalk Twitter chat was a takeover run by the e5 group, an organisation set up to promote improvements in the electrical industry. The chat was primarily aimed at electricians, but lots of different trades got involved. Here is our round-up of the best bits.

First up, the guest hosts asked about etiquette among the trades, and whether you consider the others that will be working on projects after you have finished.

The second question looked at a much-discussed issue, that of tidying up…


Next, the discussion moved on to finding skilled labour when needed.

After a bit of discussion about regulation bodies, the conversation moved on to the issue of late (or non) paying customers. Not surprisingly, feelings were running high on this subject.

The next question was on how to stand out against the competition, and professionalism was highlighted by all trades.

The final question gave other trades the opportunity to say what they’d like the electricians they work with to know. Here are some of the publishable replies.


If you’d like to chat to other tradespeople around the UK (and further afield!) do tune in on Twitter every Tuesday from 8pm – just search the hashtag #TradesTalk.
