Update from the Chairman 30 March 2020



In these challenging times that are upon us now, we value the situation you and your business are in and on behalf of the Board of the SHBC we want you to know that we care and are here to support you through it.

Over the coming days, weeks and months we will all be challenged in so many different ways but it has never been so important as it is now to stay connected and communicate with each other and together we will get through this.

The SHBC Board have been busy behind the scenes implementing different ways for you to connect with other business owners, promote your business and make sure we stay connected. The following strategy is what is happening over the next few weeks:


  • MyBoard will be proceeding again this week as before on bi-monthly basis BUT on an online platform now
  • Everyone in a MyBoard group should have been contacted with details for the online platform. If you have not, please contact your MyBoard leader OR email Board Member David Ferris for further details e:davidferris@riskybusiness.com.au
  • If you are NOT in a MyBoard group and we strongly encourage everyone to join in this current climate (rules are bit more relaxed to join a group now), please contact Richard Holland for an application form and further details membership@sydneyhillsbusiness.com.au
