The wisdom of Australian CEO Allan Cooney never ceases to amaze us – all the time. How refreshing! And from such a humble man. I know Allan’s very words will be healing to many who have entered a business crisis at some stage in their lives. Allan reminds us all about what the Hard School can teach you – and I think those purporting to be there for businesses as an economic agency or in a business advisory capacity. should be mindful of the extensive experience those who have fallen on hard times – can give back to those in a business crisis situation during and post Covid19 Lockdown.
I graduated from the Hard School last year and my learning continues. Business Crisis Support NZ was set up in 2018 – to fill a gap that no one in the business community wanted to fill. Kindness and compassion is what’s needed – many of us never even got that preCovid19 from Organisations who say they are there for business people – but weren’t there for us. Sad, but true.
So, we have since changed that conversation and will not be abandoning anyone who needs help. Our concern with Business Advice being given to business owners post lockdown – is that it will be the same people giving the same advice, that they did prelockdown. Many of us need to change that by letting the business community now through this page, how some of us lost everything – but eventually got through it all.
