The Real Media Collective has announced a ‘Re-Build Together’ webinar series which will run through May and June to help educate and guide business owners to get back on track in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.
The weekly interactive webinars will begin on May 6 with each one focusing on a specific discipline featuring a different keynote speaker who is a specialist in their field. Areas that will be covered include industrial and workplace relations, finance and cash flow management, mental wellness, print marketing and financial literacy.
The Collective is also organising a national event roadshow for later in the year once restrictions have lifted.
The webinars and the roadshow events are supported by Ball & Doggett, Flint Group CPS, Fuji Xerox Australia, Media Super, Starleaton and Visual Connections and provide a partnered approach across industry needs.
TRMC chief executive officer Kellie Northwood says, “Our members and broader industry have never needed such a series more and I thank our platinum sponsor – Fuji Xerox Australia and our supporters – Ball & Doggett, Flint Group CPS, Media Super, Starleaton and Visual Connections – who not only support the industry as direct members of RMC, but also adding additional support to bring the ‘Re-Build Together’ series to life.
“We are in unprecedented times, we need advice across Industrial and Workplace Relations, Mental Wellness, Marketing our businesses from ground zero, Financial Literacy and more. This series will provide that support from the experts and give members the opportunity to ask questions and interact.
“All webinars will be recorded and available to be downloaded at a later date, we are not locking this as a members-only series, this is open for all of industry as we stand together to re-build our future.”
A list of keynote speakers have been locked in for the webinar series including Deborah Corn, ‘Intergalactic Ambassador to the Printerverse’ from PrintMediaCentre, Charles Watson, GM – IR, Policy and Governance from the RMC, Steven Gamble from Man Anchor and more.
“The ‘Re-Build Together’ supports RMC’s ‘Buy Local’ campaigning promoting positive buy local messaging to over 10,000 print buyers and adopting the ‘Australian Made’ campaign modelling,” Northwood said.
“Eight weeks of webinars with up to 1,000 registrations to each session being offered and events across Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and Perth at the end of the year will run across a six-month program.
“From people and policy, to print marketing our businesses, superannuation and financial literacy and mental health, these sessions will provide the step by step guide to rebuilding businesses and move beyond COVID-19.
“Our industry has overcome challenges before and we will overcome this, we encourage everyone to join the sessions – owner/operators, press operators, bindery staff, sales reps, managers – we are all impacted and we are all part of a print community. Sharing, supporting and rebuilding together is what we’re all about and everyone is welcome to share the benefits.”
