Coronavirus: Expert online events will help businesses recover from coronavirus lockdown

Coronavirus: Community advice and support Shropshire CC

News from Marches Growth Hub

Three special online sessions are being staged to offer expert advice to help Shropshire businesses recover from the coronavirus lockdown.

The Marches Growth Hub Shropshire has teamed up with experts from The Innovation Beehive to run the free, live and interactive events in May and June 2020.

The hub says the online sessions will be open to all businesses in both Shropshire and Telford & Wrekin to help support the whole county’s recovery.

Emma Chapman, Shropshire Growth Hub manager, said the three sessions on 12 May, 19 May and 2 June would offer a springboard for businesses to prepare for what is to come once the current restrictions are lifted and build a roadmap through the uncertainty the virus had created.

The first session on Tuesday 12 May – Virtual Working at its Best – will examine ways in which businesses can use the skills and techniques developed through home-working during the lockdown when offices reopen.

It will examine how a virtual team can stay connected, engaged and productive, the tools businesses can use to stay connected, how to connect with customers remotely and some of the traits of great remote leadership.

It is aimed at entrepreneurs wanting to connect with their teams and customers remotely, team leaders needing to stay connected with their teams and business leaders who want to preserve the digital capability developed during the pandemic for the future.

The final session on 2 June will examine how innovation and creative problem solving will be vital to businesses successfully recovering from the crisis.
