By now, many of us would have “survived” the Movement Control Order or MCO, and its many variations that came after. As the country moves into the recovery stage (RMCO), many businesses will be re-starting their operations and picking up the pieces where they left behind on 17th March 2020. The MCO of 3 months has derived businesses of revenue (cash flow) as business activity has come to a total halt. Unfortunately, the lack of revenue or more correctly cash inflow does not negate the payments of contractual obligations whether they are financial repayments or expenses.
While the government has played their part through the 4 stimulus packages to assist the business community especially the SMEs, business must hold the bull by the horns and take upon themselves the struggle to survive the crisis and hopefully to proper thereafter. However, a struggle in itself may be futile if no proper planning is made and a well thought out plan of action is put in place for execution. It would be a waste if the endeavour itself is not even viable in the first place.
This program will give participants a quick and comprehensive understanding of the situation at hand, the key issues and available assistance (if any). Participant will also learn the critical skills in identifying the issues and areas, key cash flow drivers; preparing a business continuity plan and apply such skills and methodologies to do proper planning and effective management of cash resources to survive the financial crisis brought about by the pandemic.
