The Board of the IPBN ensured very quickly, once the confinment period due to the COVID-19 outbreak in Europe started, that our members, many of whom run small businesses, did not feel isolated. There is no question that this crisis caused by the COVID-19, is having an impact on all our businesses in some way and the need to have good quality information, a place to ask questions and to maintain connection to others, even if it is in virtual meetings, is more important than ever.

For these reasons, the IPBN developed a new webinar series where our Board members and members shared useful information on a range of topics including how to maintain your business and find new opportunities, manage your cashflow, rethink your strategy, update your knowledge of marketing and promotion, government supports and the legal obligations to employers & employees in these particular circumstances.

You will find below the full progamme we run and all our guest speakers details.These webinars were conducted on the IPBN ZOOM platforms and lasted each about 1 hour. 

There was a chance for guests to ask questions and we enjoyed interesting discussions.

We urge our members to continue connecting with each other and enhance their knowledge during these "normal" new times. Please keep safe!

All the webinars are available to all on our YouTube channel by clicking here and you can have access to each presentation on the Documents section of the website by clicking here

This special Webinars series was supported and sponsored by DENSE AIR, specialising in building 5G wireless small cell solutions for both ‘network enhancement’ and ‘network extension‘.
