The Australian Women Chamber of Commerce and Industry (AWCCI) will hold free forums and networking event for local women business owners in four states.

Living with Deborah Hutton, will be the host.

The half-day educational forum and networking event titled Resilient Business: Magic or Planned Progress? will be presented by two Business Continuity Planning experts Jodi Wentworth (RiskLogic) and Julie Viney (Origin).

"Attendees will learn how to prepare their businesses in order to survive beyond non-routine disruptions as well as receive information on the opportunities available for businesses to thrive following adversity," explains Yolanda Vega, CEO of the AWCCI. "We especially urge all women in manufacturing to attend this event.

"We all know that prevention is better than cure," says Vega, "business is no different. Precautionary steps can be taken my business owners in order to ensure they are prepared for any type of incident.

"A Business Continuity Plan (BCP) may sound daunting, but it's not," says Vega. "In fact a BCP can be a simple plan that can save your business and secure your financial future.

"Information is power and we know the number of women business owners in Ballarat is significant; this forum will provide invaluable information to women; we urge all women in manufacturing to attend this half-day free event.

"Small business are the backbone of this lucky country of ours and women are a very significant part of this structure," says Vega. "Women are opening up business at twice the rate of men now and we want to ensure they have the information they need in order to grow successfully for the good of our communities and the economy.

"Women business owners can expect a great day of learning in a safe environment that will provide invaluable information and a free lunch whilst learning about how to bounce forward creatively following a business crisis. The networking opportunity will also help their business."
