Talking Business Recovery with Mark Bouris and Cisco
Owning and operating a small to medium sized business (SMB) can be challenging at the best of times.
And, at the worst of times, like the kinds of challenges brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic, it can seem near impossible.
So, to help support SMBs amid the challenges and opportunities they are facing, we recently collaborated with Cisco on the three-part webinar series, Business Recovery with Mark Bouris.
Hosted by seasoned businessman Mark Bouris AM, from Yellow Brick Road and The Mentor podcast, the series seeks to uncover smart, digital strategies to help support small and mid-sized businesses as they embark on their digital journeys.
With the uncertainty of 2021 stretching out before us, discover how the three insight-packed episodes may help your business in the coming year.
Navigating today’s digital workplace
Did you know 80 per cent of workers are saying they would now turn down a job that didn’t offer flexible working?
As the world begins to emerge from lockdown and restrictions, it seems working from home is here to stay.
So, what does the new working world look like? What does it mean for small businesses? And how can you help prepare your workforce for flexible and remote working, securely and safely?
In the first episode of the series, Brendan Donohoe, Executive General Manager – Small and Medium Business at nbn, joined Luke Power, Director – Partner Organisation & Small Business at Cisco, and Mark to talk about navigating today’s digital workplace.
Business security for a hybrid workplace
As a business owner, do you know how people are moving about your premises? Where they are, what they’re doing and how close they are to each other?
The world has changed, and with it, small and mid-sized businesses are changing too.
Where once restaurants, venues and office spaces embraced heavy foot traffic, the implications of social distancing mean business owners now need to know how to keep people safe.
In the second webinar of our Business Recovery with Mark Bouris series, Brett McCallum, Senior Manager – Business Fibre at nbn joined Luke and Mark to discuss business security for a hybrid workplace.
Flexibility and security for business continuity
Right now, the ability to adapt to change is more important than ever.
Alongside embracing the everyday challenges that come with running a business, maintaining protections against cyberattacks is vital.
Fortunately, minimising downtime for your business operations can be supported with intelligent connectivity and cloud-based technologies.
In the third episode of the series, Brendan Donohoe returns with Luke and Mark to share their tips on how to build an IT environment that can help keep the lights on and your people safe, no matter what comes your way.
