Recovering your business from a crisis

Pile of newspapers wrapped in string.

Find out about our upcoming free workshop to help businesses take steps to recover from a crisis.

Wednesday 13 May 2020

The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has changed the way many businesses have had to operate. It’s no longer business as usual, so how do you recover from this kind of crisis?

Recovering from a crisis is the topic of Mount Alexander Shire Council’s next Small Business Workshop. The free workshop will show you how put a practical plan in place to follow a threat to your business.

“Advice and support for crisis recovery is so important at this time. Even the best managed businesses can be crippled by crisis,” said Eva Parkin, Economic Development Officer, Mount Alexander Shire Council.

“We are really pleased to have Sally McDonald facilitating this workshop - she has years of experience supporting regional towns through bushfire recovery,” said Ms Parkin.

Sally is a communications and government relations professional with a passion for small business resilience. Sally’s extensive work supporting economic recovery following the 2009 Victorian bushfires led to her co-authoring several resources to guide small businesses and regional business communities through the crisis planning, response and rebuilding journey.

Every business faces exposure to risk – be it a natural or economic disaster, accident or illness. A plan will help you to get through the crisis and look to the other side.

You will learn how to assess the ‘what ifs’ and plan ahead to meet them at this practical, interactive workshop packed with relevant, useful advice to improve the continuity and resilience of your business.

As a response to COVID-19 this workshop will not be delivered face to face but rather online through Zoom. Places are limited so book soon.

“Our last free workshop was booked out in a matter of days so please be quick to avoid disappointment,” said Ms Parkin.
