Have you felt that invisible line? The line you have been trying to reach but can never quite get there? The line where your business is finally making some profits and savings, and you no longer need to lie awake at night worrying. But every time you get close, something bad happens. There you are, being under again.

Tired of being under?

Unfortunately, being under-represented and excluded is often associated with being under-resourced, under-performing, under-achieving, and under-valued. We believe in your potential. We are here to offer support and to provide resources to help you and your business get over that invisible line.

Building Small Business Resilience (BSBR) Training Program is part of the Skills Innovation Challenge, an initiative by Future Skills Centre to aid those most affected by the COVID-19 crisis. The free 12-week training program is designed specifically to help you quickly upskill your digital marketing capabilities and build your business’s resilience, so that you can recover from the current economic crisis and be prepared for any future shock and disruption.

Join us and get over that invisible line!
