Webinar – Building a powerful Business Support Plan in times of shock, crisis and change

30 June @ AEST 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm


Business Support Plans are proving to be a critical part of revitalising economies impacted by COVID-19 and other factors. Two years ago, Warrnambool City Council implemented a successful, multi-faceted Business Support Plan to assist local businesses through an extensive city centre renewal. This Webinar will present this winning case study, giving participants a detailed look at the theory, the delivery and the outcomes of the plan. The session will explore how Business Support Plans can underpin and bring real value to the economic recovery plan of any city.
