LIVE EVENTS AT THE BUSINESS LEAGUE
Dear Business Owners,
COVID-19 has brought a challenging and confusing time for many, not to mention the uncertainty for our futures as operators.
As business owners ourselves, we understand how the constantly shifting advice and lack of timeframes on how long things will go on restricting daily life, can feel heavy.
It is for that reason that now, more than ever, we are encouraging our community to connect in to their peers, rather than retract. To choose to proactively respond to this situation, rather than react.
At this stage, we have chosen not to cancel any of our live events on the Gold Coast – however, we will instead be utilising the latest technologies to transition our events to a Virtual Hemisphere .
For many, this online solution may be new. The good thing is, we’ve been holding Virtual Networking meetings online for a long time, about the last five years. We are very confident that our physical-in-person event will transfer easily to an online platform.
We started rolling out online support solutions for our membership community this week. Since then, they have already shared with us the positive difference ‘seeing other people’s faces in their home office’ has been making. And, also ‘being able to share where they are at’ right now.
Connect-ing has never been more vital.
As mentioned, we will continue to run our Live Breakfast Events for members and guests, we will also be adding to our schedule Momentum Masterclasses – these will be a free resource to anyone in our TBL community, where you have the opportunity to hear live and ask questions (through our Facebook Group, the Connection Hub about the issues that small business people are asking for help in right now, like:
- Managing your people: What are we liable and responsible for? What are our options?
- Personal Wellbeing: How can I stay well and effective during an anxious time?
- Digital Hacks: What do I need to have in place to
- Stategic CEO: How to overcome the sensationalism and work from a rational place
They are to start.
This is an evolving economy, which we need to face with an Evolutionary Mindset.
Please remember: ‘Self Isolation’ does not have to mean FEELING ISOLATED.
Now is the time to access a supportive community. Tap In Now. Send an email. Raise a hand. Call Someone.
This is not the time to sit back and wait for someone to extend an olive branch to you.
This is the time to step forward. Ask for what you need. IT’S Your time to RESPOND, rather than react.
If you don’t have one, please let us help you. Our Masterclasses will be with really smart and specialised people to help us through the coming weeks.
Until we see you live again, we look forward to seeing you online.
Thank you for your continued support,
On behalf of Edward and Rebecca Plant, Founders of The Business League
