To thrive in this rapidly changing business environment it is important to share experiences and creatively problem solve with others. To help you do this, Auckland Emergency Management (the agency tasked with helping Aucklanders be prepared in times of major emergencies and focused on building resilience) is bringing you a free online series of interactive knowledge-sharing workshops designed for small businesses.

The workshops are being delivered by risk and resilience experts Resilient Organisations, who help businesses prepare for and get through times of crisis and make decisions in a world full of uncertainty and ambiguity.
