This evening is a free online workshop hosted by the Peregian Digital Hub specifically for retailers wishing to grow their business or rapidly convert their physical store to an online model. Speakers include Business continuity practitioner, Kirsten Norman from Biz Whiz Business Solutions, who will help Unboxers understand the critical steps they should be taking to stay afloat in difficult times.
