Upcoming Events

Virtual Workshops


Ahead of your workshop

Ahead of your workshop you will be invited to complete a business resilience assessment for your business using our Business Resilience Roadmap. This targeted assessment covers 16 areas that contribute to resilience in business and helps you to develop your own personal roadmap to building resilience in your business.

The Business Resilience Roadmap has been co-created with the business community in the Blue Mountains. It was developed by Resilient Ready in conjunction with Business Blue Mountains.

Completing the Business Resilience Roadmap is free for all businesses in the Blue Mountains. You can start it at any time.

At the virtual workshop

  • Introduction to the Business Resilience Roadmap
  • Local business leaders will share their experiences building resilience in business and discuss the 16 focus areas of the Business Resilience Roadmap
  • Participants will be split into smaller breakout groups to meet each other, reflect on areas where they have identified gaps and discuss how they plan to address those gaps
  • Opportunity to network (virtually) and form connections with other business owners across the mountains

The workshops aim to give our local business owners a forum to build skills in resilience planning and devote time to reflect on and increase business resilience.

How do we build a more resilient Blue Mountains business community? The answer is – together!

We’re celebrating Small Business Month in the Blue Mountains on 25-26 March with a jam-packed schedule of FREE networking, presentations and workshops.
