Could your business cope with an emergency?

According to statistics provided by a group coming to the South Burnett tomorrow, 43 per cent of businesses affected by disasters never re-open. Another 29 per cent fail within two years …

Volunteering Queensland, in conjunction with the South Burnett Regional Council, is bringing Business Roundtable EXTEND to the South Burnett tomorrow to provide an opportunity for businesspeople to prepare, prevent, respond and recover from major disruptions.

The event, which is free, will be held at the Nanango Cultural Centre from 6:00pm to 7:30pm tomorrow night (March 26).

The workshop will allow businesses to:

  • Connect and collaborate with other local businesses
  • Access business continuity and resilience resources
  • Develop business-to-business support in times of need
  • Learn how to better manage business risks
