Resilient Ready is delivering a one-stop workshop on how to keep your business resilient and ready with the correct insurance.

Chief executive officer and Resilient Ready founder Renae Hanvin has for the past 30 years been working in crisis management and crisis communications, which led her to believe small businesses are the heart and soul of communities.

Ms Hanvin wants to help business communities, to connect people and build their knowledge and capabilities so they are doing good business in the good times and when the bad times occur they are properly covered.

“When we have the sessions we just have big ‘aha’ moments,” she said.

“This is for everyone in business, if you’re selling or delivering products and services.

“Insurance seems very dull and boring, but I’m not, I’m quite fun! We help people find what they can do to help fund the insurance they need, and if you can’t get insurance what are you going to do?”

She said coming into summer and bushfire season, the workshop could help sort out the type of insurance you would need.

Resilient Ready recently completed a two-year project on Kangaroo Island for helping create a business climate road map, for which it won a South Australian Resilient Australia business Award last month.

“We got to go to Governor House and meet the Governor, it was very exciting,” Ms Hanvin said.

“A lot of the work we do is relevant to every region.

“We did one session in the Adelaide Hills, there were about 40 participants and through shared experience it was a really beneficial conversation.”

Regional Development Australia tourism development manager Annabelle Hender agreed this was a timely reminder for local businesses to go over their insurance through the free workshops being offered by Ms Hanvin and the Resilient Ready team.

The next and final workshop is on Thursday, October 19 from 7.30am to 8.30am at the Port Lincoln Hotel. Food and refreshments will be provided.

The workshops are being delivered as part of a grant Resilient Ready was awarded from South Australian Fire and Emergency Services Commision.
