Sharing Stories of Local Business Resilience

The success of local businesses in withstanding the tough economic climate caused by drought, bushfires and COVID-19 will be showcased in our upcoming Businesses Shine Through Dark Times project. This project will highlight the resilience and innovation of businesses in our region by sharing how they have adapted to address these challenges. As part of the project, we will be producing case study videos and interviews from a range of businesses around the Northern Inland. Sharing their stories can inspire new ideas and encourage others to keep up their fantastic work through these challenging times.

We are pleased to receive funding from Resilience NSW to run this project, which was announced by Adam Marshall, Member for Northern Tablelands. Mr Marshall said that beneath the dust and ash of the past five years, local manufacturers, hospitality and retail operators have had to think outside the box in order to find gold. “It’s important, as we continue on this path to economic recovery, that we focus on the positives and learn from those inspirational operators who have kept trading through the challenging times,” Mr Marshall said. “This project in itself is an innovative approach, which I think will play an important role in encouraging businesses to be brave, step outside their comfort zones and do something different that will sets them out from the crowd.”

The survival and renewal of local businesses is crucial to the recovery of our communities. Although times have been tough, it’s not all doom and gloom, and the stories of resilience and success should be shared and celebrated. Our region’s business sector has some great resilience stories which deserve to be professionally produced and promoted.

If you are a local business owner who is doing something unique to adapt, or you know of a local business that you think should be included, we would love to hear from you by email at rdani@rdani.org.au.
