Welcome to Better Business - the spring 2020 digital edition

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

We have dedicated much of this issue to the SFA National Small Business Awards. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the virtual Gala Ceremony took place on 12th March, eight category winners and five emerging new businesses were announced. KORE Insulation, based in Kilnaleck, Cavan, scooped the overall award and you can read all about them and all our winners in our awards pages.

In this edition, we bring you an interview with SBCI’s Nick Ashmore, on how to access competitive finance during these difficult times. A feature on why Limerick City has become such an attractive location for doing business and a look at how to build resilience across all levels of a small business.

Elsewhere in this edition, check out our sector spotlight on the global drinks market. Read our top tips on how to help your organisation cope during this emergency and advice on how to manage stress in the workplace.

Since the SFA offices are currently closed due to COVID-19 restrictions, this edition of Better Business magazine will be distributed as a digital edition only. Information and quality content is important for our members during this time so please add the link to you website and promote on social media.
