Business as usual?
Business and Learning at the Library of Birmingham can assist in these difficult times
In the current climate it is hard to focus on getting your business started when there are other, more important concerns like health and staying safe.
However, it does offer the opportunity to think about how the situation will impact on start-ups, adapting to a new work of working and best ways to move forward when the situation improves.
Business and Learning are looking at may different ways of helping our clients in this difficult period including remote access through webinars, use of online databases and social media channels. While this is being put in place we have a list of sources which may help businesses with answering any queries and accessing help through the Government initiatives introduced recently. We have also created a questionnaire where you can let us know what your main concerns are and the assistance you require. The information you provide will enable us to explore alternative delivery options including the possibility of online workshops and 1:1 advice sessions. All feedback is appreciated and will genuinely support how we move forward. The information you provide will also inform future service delivery and workshop provision, so that when we return to the Library, we have a range of new and exciting workshops and networking events for you to attend.
In the meantime, we are still offering our dedicated business email facility. For all business enquiries, you can email the team on: email@example.com. If we cannot offer the advice you need, we will make sure we signpost and provide alternative options. We look forward to receiving your feedback, and once again, thank you for your valuable input.
