Future-proof your business with help from our industry experts 

The effect of COVID-19 on the UK’s small business economy has been immense, with recent research by McKinsey indicating that half of the UK’s SMEs expect market stagnation or recession.

Many businesses are facing reduced revenues and employee headcount, and most have postponed growth projects pending a greater understanding of a ‘new normal’.

The ability to quickly react to new market trends, adapt systems and processes, launch new products & services and generate sales leads will be critical to future, sustainable small business growth.

In this session, our expert speakers will provide you with an overview of the practical, tactical and cost-effective strategies your business can quickly implement in response to the changing market. You will leave the session with a greater understanding of COVID-19 driven market trends and a practical toolkit to manage these changing trends.
