When challenges become opportunities

As 2023 kicks off, there is, naturally enough, a sense of trepidation and unease around what might be around the corner after several years of fires, floods, and severe weather – not to mention a pandemic.

What is certain is that there will be more disruptions, whatever form they take, and small businesses, which make up 98 per cent of community businesses, need to be prepared to weather them.

When you accept that disasters CAN and WILL happen at some point during your life as a business owner, you can start to view those challenges as opportunities.

Opportunities can include preparing for the worst and minimising your risks.

Our focus this year and every year is to build the resilience of business communities everywhere.

By building the capabilities and skills of small businesses, so they can survive future disasters and disruptions, and continue to successfully trade, we can thrive as communities.

Our solutions educate businesses and their employees about disaster preparedness and resilience, fitting in learning around their busy work commitments.
