Recording: EOY 2020 – How prepared is your business?

A co-hosted webinar with the IronEdge Group.

2020 has been a year of unknowns – complete with numerous curveballs thrown at individuals and businesses worldwide. After months of pivoting, what is next for business owners? What should you be considering as you close out the year and plan for 2021?

This year tested how prepared all of us were for anything that came our way. The impact of COVID will likely cause organizations to face unique year-end considerations they typically would not. With the volume of legislative changes, the number of employees working remotely, and the upcoming Presidential election, it is more critical than ever to understand how these changes will impact you.

In this webinar, we will walk you through how to be sure you have adequately prepared and the technology needed to get you there successfully.
