As the second wave of coronavirus infections continue to rise, Australian businesses are feeling increasingly uncertain about their prospects of recovery.
To understand the impact of COVID-19 on small and medium enterprises, leading business market research firm, Fifth Quadrant & ACA Research has been monitoring the pulse of the SME sector via the COVID-19 SME Tracker in partnership with TEG Insights.
Now in its 13th wave, the Tracker monitors how business decision makers are coping with the seismic effects of COVID-19 and adapting to the new business reality. The latest data shows business confidence has been dented by a combination of new outbreaks, localised lockdowns and border restrictions.
Join James Organ and Steve Nuttall at Fifth Quadrant & ACA Research as they discuss the latest key insights and implications from the Tracker, uncover how SMEs are navigating their way through this crisis and consider the broader economic impacts.
Attendees will benefit from understanding how resilient their customers, partners, franchisees, distributors and supply chain are in the face of this unprecedented threat.
