Welcome to Better Business – the autumn 2019 digital edition.

Better Business is a magazine dedicated to the small business community, brought to you by the Small Firms Association.

This autumn we sit down with Minister Michael D’Arcy on the importance of new insurance reform legislation and how it could prevent the impact of high insurance costs.

In this edition, we focus on resilience, read about how to build resilience amongst your staff and meditative techniques to build your own personal resilience. Check out our feature on the importance of internationalising your business and read our sector spotlight on fashion retail.

Elsewhere in this edition you will find an interview with Kealan Ryan author of The Middle Place, information on how to understand and manage work-related stress, a guide to public speaking and details of the National Small Business Awards 2020. Along the way you will come across a diverse range of businesses, whose experiences may well give you a fresh take on your own venture.
