Uncover funding, discover support and build a better City with Jess Scully

When:
Thu 06 May 2021
Cost:
0
Details:
This is the moment when we can reflect on the challenges of the last year and ask how we can build back better...? And most importantly of all: what kind of world do we want, and are actions and policies taking us there.

2020 had an undoubted impact on small business in Australia. Not only were they disproportionately affected by the pandemic, bushfires and floods, there has also been a renewed interest in supporting small and local businesses. As we now look towards a post-covid world and building back our economy, we ask what does the future of work look like? What are important elements of a city for an engaged, active and social society? How can we create a world that puts the the community, environment and people first?

If you're operating a small business or looking to explore side hustle options, this is an event you won't want to miss. Deputy Lord Mayor and author, Jess Scully will be joining Seed Spaces for an informal afternoon to chat about the future of small business and recovery of City of Sydney. 

This event will cover:

· How do we play a role in the road to recovery for Sydney?

· How can City of Sydney initiatives enhance our business, work and social lives?

· What support can you access, in knowledge, grants or connections, for small and new generation businesses?

· How to have a voice at the local government level, and why it matters.

Wine and nibbles provided.
