Support for your business
With the current Coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis, many people are facing some uncertainty in both their personal and business lives.
At The Business Factory, we understand that there are concerns about how businesses will function throughout the crisis as well as the need to address practical questions such as staff being unable to attend work due to self-isolation, how to use technology to your advantage etc. Here are some things we’re doing so that it’s business as usual at The Business Factory:
Your advisor is still around Contact your advisor directly by email if you need to arrange an online or phone meeting. It is worth checking our social media posts if you have a specific question. As the situation changes so quickly, social media is the place we will update first.
Workshops moving online We’re now using technology to deliver our workshops online, so you can still join in the workshop sessions, from the comfort of your own home.
