Series of Virtual Events

We understand the instruction to reduce face-to-face contact in order to reduce the spread of infection – we also recognise that businesses need the ability to continue in some form.

 

During the pandemic we are vowing to be a source of pragmatic, practical and valuable guidance so our business community is able to fight the fight.

 

Join our series of interactive webinars to support your business and employees as we navigate the coronavirus crisis. We will be joined by an expert from within our membership to provide key insights into topical subjects and ensure your business questions are addressed.

 

As a community, we must stick together to protect ourselves, our businesses and our workforce.

How long might it take to get the economy back on to its pre-COVID track, and what changes might we see along the way? In the meantime, what will happen to all that debt that businesses have taken on, and can the government continue to rely on being able to raise money for next to nothing from the bond markets?
