Business Continuity Coaching

We will offer coaching that focuses on these four questions:

  1. What do I need to do to secure my cashflow in this crisis?
  2. What are my options?
  3. How do I make hard decisions with grace and dignity?
  4. How do I lead my team and stay sane myself?

Through a series of dedicated online video calls we will work with you so that you can lead your team with a strong plan to adapt to the crisis and make the most of the next 6 – 18 months.

New Idea Prototyping

Got an idea for a new product, business idea or customer segment?

Milton Friedman once said, “only a crisis produces real change. When a crisis occurs, the actions taken depend on the ideas lying around.” From our conversations there are plenty of you reaching for those ideas and looking to make something of them.

We will work with you to identify, map, and test new products or new customers. This will take place over short video conferences using a series of questions and tools.

Support Available to you

There are a number of aid packages and support available in Australia at the moment but the amount of information can be overwhelming. We’ve gone through everything available and have highlighted the most applicable options to Social Enterprises, Not-for-Profits and SMEs.

For all other countries, please refer to your government website for more information on what is available to you.
