Businesses that want to sustain and make their way through this and be in a good position in 36 and 12 months need to implement new processes and frameworks to adjust their business to the new times.  

Third Sector understands the pressures the sector is undergoing. This recently launched Third Sector Business Viability Series is a series of online seminars and workshops that provide practical support for struggling organisations. 

A workshop tailored for CEOs, Board Members and Leaders within for-purpose organisations titled How to design human-centred services remotely during COVID-19  is happening on May 19th.   

Presented by Tracey Newman & Daniel Bentley, Co-founders and Directors of Impacto Consulting, a social innovation consulting business, this 60-minute virtual workshops will help leaders understand new ways they can create or improve services that better meet the needs of their clients in the COVID-19 world. 

All workshops complement each other with the intention to help prepare organisations and companies survive. 

The “Roadmap for the future – Preparing a FY21 Budget in the current COVID-19 environment” virtual conference on May 26 will  equip organisations with skills on how to plan the FY21 Budget in the current COVID-19 environment. This will be led by Brendan Lucas from Hopscotch Accounting who will give a step-by-step process to prepare, present and monitor budget.
