Our accelerated training will extend your capability to deal with this crisis by assisting you with targeted support in the areas of business continuity, employee relations and legal, financial and cashflow management, health and wellness, marketing support and digital enablement.

How much? Our Covid-19 support programmes start from as little as $2,000 and we find that in many cases the investment can be covered by various grants, donations and pay it forward eco-systems.
