The first 60-minute session, at 10am on Wednesday 25 March, will cover topics including managing cashflow, supply chain issues, possible business rescue measures and additional lending considerations from a solvency perspective.

SBRC chief executive Jude McCorry said: “Now is a time to unite and be proactive. We have established this cross-industry group to help people navigate this strange new world and prepare for a different way of being in business.

“We are not going to sit back and watch companies fail who could have survived if they had some sort of mentoring, practical advice or simply a confidence boost to keep going. This board will help give every business a fighting chance, but to also have a solid network so that if they have to fail, that they do so among friends and feel supported.”

Calder added: “Whilst these are uncertain times there are a number of key areas businesses should consider and various proactive steps they can take to mitigate impact. The SBRC is actively trying to bring businesses together to collaborate for the greater good of the business community.”
