Free webinars help prepare for future disaster events

04th Aug 2020

A range of free online disaster preparedness workshops are rolling out to strengthen the community against future disaster events – whether it be drought, bushfire or infectious disease outbreaks.
The webinars have been running across three different streams: Improving Farm Business Skills, Improving Local Business Skills and Strengthening Community Group Skills.
The webinars are facilitated by the team at GLENRAC and headlined by Australian industry professionals across a range of topics including finance, goal planning, succession, technology, meeting management, recovery strategies, WHS, continuity planning and risk mitigation.
GLENRAC Chief Executive Officer, Kylie Falconer said the great thing about these events taking place online is that GLENRAC can engage industry professionals who they may not otherwise have been able to access, such as Roma-based bookkeeper Rachel Nixon who has delivered a number of webinars around record keeping strategies, and Goondiwindi-based Julia Spicer from Engage and Create Consulting who has been hosting our Local Business and Community Group Skills streams.
Kylie said that the easy accessibility of the online format is also a huge advantage and once you are registered attendees you are able to log onto the webinars from the comfort of your own home.
Midway through the webinar series, there has been a huge amount of support from the New England North West region already, with 117 people attending a recent Farm Business Skills event about family succession planning, and more than 900 people registering for the webinars in the series to date!
Improving Farm Business Skills webinars broadcast every Thursday from 1:00pm-2:00pm, Improving Local Business Skills webinars broadcast every Tuesday from 9:30am-10:30am and Strengthening Community Group Skills webinars broadcast every second Wednesday evening from 7:00pm-8:30pm.
