We are currently living in extraordinary circumstances, and first and foremost we must remain safe and keep ourselves, our community, and those closest to us healthy.
The Global Trade Professionals Alliance (GTPA) have joined forces to collaborate with the Institute of International Trade (IIT) at The University of Adelaide and the Supply Chain Resource Cooperative (SCRC), Poole College of Management at North Carolina State University.
As a group, we are aware that as businesses implement major changes to manage disruptions and continue operating, many could benefit from the insight
and fellowship of peers in similar positions, and the assistance of experts who can offer advice and leadership.
We believe this is particularly true of Micro Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) who may be feeling isolated and vulnerable.
While the global business landscape is changing quite rapidly, we must be assured that it will eventually stabilise at some future time. In the mean-time, businesses’capacity to survive will depend on their ability to navigate the current disruptions and innovate the ways in which they communicate, manage their business and engage customers.
Whether experiencing current difficulties, or searching to unlock future opportunities, it is crucial that businesses, trade organisations, and trade professionals now activate their community instincts and networks; no one business, whether big or small, needs to navigate these rather stormy waters alone.
