Webinar: Growing your engineering business during a recession and through a changed world

Nov 1, 2020 | By Aline Rivas | 0 Comments

Topics: Engineers, Engineering Firm, Australia

Hear from experienced engineers on how to successfully navigate engineering firms through difficult economic times now and towards the future.

Amid an economic recession and towards an uncertain future, being on top of your business is being more resilient to crisis and more capable of finding opportunities while dealing with the disruption caused by the current situation. 

Although Australia's economy has plunged into its first recession in nearly 30 years, suffering the economic fallout from the coronavirus, a lot of good work and efforts has been done by the engineering industry and sharing successful strategies used so far is the best way to drive economic recovery. 

BQE Software Australia & Consult Australia are pleased to present a panel of industry leaders who will share insights on how to overcome present challenges and grow your business.
