BUSINESS RESILIENCE AND PLANNING EXPOS AND WORKSHOPS
As a vital pillar of resilience and recovery, the business community has taken several hits over the past few years and Covid has just compounded the situation, so we aim to connect Business Owners with Government and other agencies in one convenient location. As the business community traverses the burn areas from the 2019 Bushfires (Recovery Funding from Federal and State Government is supporting these events), with employees travelling in and out of these areas and with a variety of impacts to the business and to the employees and their families, the following events have been planned –
