Here at the Surry Hills Creative Precinct, we have returned with our Covid Recovery interview series designed for the digital landscape of today. Hosted by our fantastic Vice President Mike Galvin, we have created another series to broadcast LIVE every two weeks.
In this series, we explore the different ways that small business operators have adapted to deal with Covid and what plans they have for summer 2021. We talk recovery strategy, practical ideas for surviving these changes, and we answer your questions live. This is a good opportunity to connect with other local business owners in the dynamic virtual space.
