Get Involved

We want to hear how your business plans to overcome challenges in the post COVID-19 business environment and in what ways the CBI can support you during this process. The CBI will use this insight to inform our conversations with government and ensure the voice of business is heard throughout the restart and recovery period.

These online meetings are an opportunity for you and your peers to share experiences, gain fresh perspectives on common challenges and take away some key insights on the current economic situation.


This WebEx meeting is for senior business executives who lead small or medium size business organisations

SME webinars provide thought leadership, policy analysis, and the opportunity to discuss a wide variety of issues with peers and colleagues.
