Webinar: Business resilience - How understanding and planning for risks is crucial to the success of your business

  Wed, 20/01/2021
  11:00  –  12:00

It is no secret that 2020 has been a challenging year for businesses. The Coronavirus pandemic led to a sharp fall in GDP in the first two quarters of 2020, resulting in the UK entering a recession for the first time since 2009. However, the re-opening of hospitality and leisure in the summer months, provided a somewhat short-term improvement and resulted in the fastest three-month growth on record of 15.5% (which would have been extraordinary in normal times).

Despite the turbulent economic landscape, many businesses have demonstrated strong and resilient positions, with some sectors experiencing exceptional growth. However, we cannot ignore the stark reality that others have struggled to stay afloat. As we move into 2021 and Government assistance begins to subside, timely and structured planning and effective working capital management will be of paramount importance to the long-term success of business.
