Small businesses must improve their responsiveness to the impacts of economic downturns, natural disasters and any variables that affect production, productivity and sustainability.
To help SMBs better plan for these events, the Belmont Business Enterprise Centre is hosting a series of free webinars throughout 2012.
The Belmont Business Enterprise Centre (Belmont BEC), is part of the Small Business Advisory Services – National Disaster Assistance (SBAS-NDA) program, will host webinars this year on:
- Cost Control
- Finance Options
- Market Research
- Customer Service Management
The ‘Protect Your Business from Disaster’ webinars are live presentations requiring attendees to have internet access with audio, or for those without internet access, they can be attended via telephone linkage.
The webinars are complimentary to any small business that has suffered directly or indirectly from natural disasters.
The Belmont BEC was one of 25 not-for-profit business advisory organisations to receive government funding to help SMBs impacted by natural disasters. The organisation has chosen to provide national assistance “virtually”, via one-on-one telephone assistance, email, mentoring through web meetings and group training webinars.
“Small businesses are constantly facing situations in day to day business where they need to seek professional advice. They don’t necessarily know who to turn to, and help can sometimes be expensive. This webinar has been designed to help businesses cope with uncertain situations in their businesses,” Belmont BEC manager Carol Hanlon said.
