This week, we talk with Founder and Director Ian Macpherson about what opportunities are available for business owners from the banks and our Government. Then we talk with two business owners who can describe how they have already taken advantage of some of these finance packages as well as leveraging the situation to proactively communicate and add value for their clients.
The content and direction/s of the first three speakers were brilliant especially in the current stressful climate our industry is in!
The feedback from our audience was that they wanted to hear more about what their colleagues are up to:

DIVIDE AND CONQUER
Element acted as soon as it appeared that COVID-19 was going to alter the way we work. They split their small business into 2 teams so staff could be in the office on certain days without breaching social distancing rules.
UPSKILLED AND DIVERSIFIED
The Directors spent an entire weekend working out what Job Keeper meant for their clients and how it could be leveraged to allow business owners to continue through the downturn in business. Then they allocated certain tasks of the process to different team members and enabled them to upskill and take ownership of their area of responsibility.
COMMUNICATED AND UNPACKED
They have consistently communicated with all their clients, offering them an easy, step-by-step plan to outsource the job keeper application process to Element for a small additional fee.
They also partnered with their SME colleagues to share their knowledge, expertise and their campaign to the collective client bases on mass.
This Thursday we will chat with the Directors of Element Business Solutions, Leschen Smaller and Theresa Allery, as they share their call to action as well as a few key tips around how you can take up the Job Keeper program to help you thrive in 2020.
