Join Sheards for Connection:20 Business resilience in a COVID world

As COVID19 meant we were unable to proceed with our regular Connection events this year, we have decided to take them online.

The past seven months has presented more challenges than any business leader could have predicted. Both employees and employers need to adapt to the ever-changing environment.

To support business owners with their action planning for 2021, we are bringing you four online events led by industry experts to share their words of wisdom on topics facing businesses today. 

With topics including finance, culture and wellbeing, HR, director duties and looking to the future, there is something to meet the needs of all business leaders. Attendees will be encouraged to ask questions to our panel of experts, meaning any concerns or queries specifically for their own business can be answered.

Each session is free to attend and will last approximately one hour, subject to Q&A. The full list of topic discussions is outlined below.

Commenting on the programme of events, Kevin Winterburn, director at Sheards Accountancy said; “We have listened carefully to the challenges our clients and the local business community has faced since the events of the 16th March when the nation was put into lockdown. While there continues to be upheaval and ongoing changes to how businesses can operate, the topics we'll be covering in our upcoming sessions relate to many of the conversations we've had over the past seven months and continue to have.

We hope that by hosting these sessions, we can support local businesses to thrive long beyond the current challenges they face.”
