How Will Coronavirus Affect Your Small Business?

Coronavirus panic has gripped the entire world and created unprecedented, uncertain times. Everywhere you turn, there are new alerts, new statistics, new guidelines for individual health and safety—and new updates from the big companies.

But in these strange, uncharted waters, where does a small business turn? There’s no guidebook for the solo entrepreneur and no precedent for a small enterprise to follow.

That’s why Scaling Retail is moderating two webinars on COVID-19 & Small Businesses. When it comes to managing this crisis, Scaling Retail has readied the resources. We’ve sourced the knowledge of industry experts in a variety of important fields and are bringing the best of the best together to answer your questions and address your concerns.

Join us this Friday, March 20th and also on Friday, March 27th, for a two-hour webinar starting at 1:00 pm EDT/10:00 am PDT where we’ll be fighting pandemic panic with actionable insights into crisis management. With panels of experts in the fields of legal, HR, PR, small business, sourcing, operations, and more, this is a unique opportunity to ask questions about coronavirus and its effects on small businesses and better arm your business through this time of change and uncertainty.
