ISME and Griffith College have joined forces to support businesses with a free online training programme in response to the Covid-19 crisis.

Industry experts will lead a series of workshops three times a week. The first begins at 10.30am this morning.

The aim of the programme is to support businesses in coping with the difficult and unplanned issues they are now facing as a result of the impact of Covid-19 and to help them to put strategies in place to recover when the time comes.

Industry experts across a range of topics that are pertinent to small and medium sized businesses during this time will host the sessions. 

Presenters include economist Jim Power, who will provide an overview on the global economy post Covid-19. Pádraig Ó Céidigh, the former CEO of Aer Arann, will also focus on building a new reality for Irish SMEs.

A panel of expert practitioners will also discuss optimising supply chains and operations for smaller business.

A full schedule of programme workshops is available to view also on the ISME and Griffith College websites.
