Business Resilience

What’s On

If the pandemic has taught us anything, it’s the power of resilience. Together, we were able to come together as an industry collective and share ideas, thoughts and practical guidance to help us get through what has been one of the most difficult times in society.

We delivered regular webinars, dedicated clinics in our Power Hive WhatsApp group, a three day virtual conference, and intimate virtual member meetings (accessible to non-members at an additional cost), hosted by industry leaders. Due to the popularity of these sessions, we have integrated them into our membership as standard.

As we emerge from the pandemic after a period of recovery, we are primed to thrive. Our Business resilience programme recognises this and aims to support you, your business and your staff in the provision of tools that will help you suceed.
