Building financial resilience in the post-COVID-19 era

As small businesses shift their focus from emergency financial management to budgeting for the newly transformed economy, the ability to plan expenditure and manage cash & liquidity will be critical to achieving future, sustainable growth.

Why should you join this webinar?

With help from industry experts, this free webinar will explore budgeting strategies to help you prepare for the new economy and share how businesses can overcome revenue and cashflow disruptions as a result of COVID-19. 

Due to the nature of this interactive webinar, participants will be asked prior to the webinar to create their own business financial diagnostic to help identify the symptoms or causes of a problem. This will enable you to understand all the key components of a budget for the new economy. 

What will you learn?

  • Discover what sources of interim financial support are available and what possible future sources might be available for small businesses
  • Learn what financial and operational measures you can take to maximise cashflow
  • Learn to realign your focus from short-term emergency financial management to developing a practical budget for the post COVID-19 economy
  • Hear up to date content provided from market experts, including VCs, the British Business Bank and Metro Bank
