Webinar provides business planning for agriculture industry

BDO, in partnership with the Department of Agriculture and Fisheries, will deliver a series of webinars over the coming weeks. The webinars aim to provide expert support to help minimise the impact and lead discussions on key issues pertaining to the coronavirus outbreak, as they unfold. As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to cause widespread disruption, it is vital for the agriculture sector to collaborate and formulate action plans to alleviate risks.

The first webinar will take place on Thursday, 26 March, from 1.00–2.00 pm. BDO’s Business Continuity Planning Partner, Mark Cushing, and Food & Agribusiness Executive Director Margaux Beauchamp will provide guidance measures that the agriculture industry needs to consider in response to COVID-19. The webinar will also address vital measures needed to prepare and protect the supply chain now, and over time.

The webinar will also cover business continuity planning measures and action items (including impacts on sustainability, health and safety, technology and supply chain), providing insights and updates from within the industry’s supply chain working groups. The presenters will also discuss strategies for supply chain protection as COVID-19 restrictions are put in place. There will also be a Life Q&A time to answer specific questions or share issues.

Those who would like to submit their questions before the session are encouraged to email events.brisbane@bdo.com.au or submit their questions in the registration form process.
