To our members,
As you are aware the Brid Horan event this month has been deferred and future events, such as our wine tasting event and other gatherings, will be postponed until further notice. We will continue to monitor the situation closely and provide updates on future events when available.
Mary-Clare has decided at this time to move on from the Chamber to spend more time with her two young kids. I will miss her greatly and she has contributed significantly to a very busy and successful year for the Chamber, culminating in the Australia Day lunch in January. In due course, we will seek a replacement for Mary-Clare.
For each of us in our different businesses, it is and will continue to be an extraordinarily challenging period. At the Chamber, we are acutely aware of these challenges facing our members and are committing to make a positive and constructive effort to support you.
First up, thanks to Julie Fenton, we are providing access to EY's COVID-19 Business Leader Webinars. This first seminar is on How to lead in a period of crisis, prioritise the deployment of your workforce to ensure business continuity and maximise effectiveness and will share insights from Italy and China to help understand the learnings that can be applied from their experiences. Click here to access a recording of this webinar.
In addition, another member, PJ Byrne from Flexifi has prepared a helpful guide to supports available for COVID-19 impacted businesses and is available here. This may be helpful for some SME members.
If any other members can assist fellow members in any way, please get in touch. In the meantime, if you have any queries, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
If there is anything we at the Chamber can do to assist in these very difficult times, let me know.
