Got something to say about Small Business Insurance?

We’re inviting all Small Business owners and operators across South Australia to help us understand what you think and know about small business insurance.

Across August to October, social enterprise Resilient Ready are running two rounds of community and online talks to develop 10 micro-learning modules to help people in small business think differently about insurance.

At each session we’ll be asking for anonymous answers about your small business insurance experiences.

These talks are about understanding what small business owners currently think and do when it comes to insurance.
