Introducing the C-19 SME Resource Centre
We’re talking with SME business leaders up and down the country every day. And the feedback is loud and clear that there is little really useful real-time information out there for people like us. That’s why we’re so passionate about doing what we can to help get through these challenging times, and build towards a better, stronger future.
That’s why we’ve created the C-19 SME Resource Centre – the latest updates and information on Coronavirus and your business.
Pragmatic advice from every business discipline
The SME Resource Centre collects together pragmatic advice from our 90 strong group of Marketing Directors who spend their lives working with SMEs; to this we’ve added guidance on financial matters, IT, HR and more from our trusted partners; plus, links to government and business sources.
We do hope you find this resource useful and we can spark some optimism and shared enthusiasm for building a better, stronger future together.
Find the advice you need from the resource centre quickly:
- Marketing Matters - tactics you can implement now
- Expert advice on marketing in current times
- Guidance from our Liberti partners on HR, Financial and Legal concerns
- General guidance on business leadership and government resources
- On-demand webinars

The ultimate question is, How to pivot? We’re not talking about stopping the bleeding but creating another long-term channel of substance. Obviously, it’s not going to be easy. But this is a whole new opportunity for the long-term; here’s how to get it right from the start.
