Abstract

A survey conducted in late 2021 by corporate2community (C2C) of more than 60 business owners in the Blue Mountains Local Government Area highlighted that business owners recognise the power of networks and connections to help build resilience.
At the same time, the survey results highlighted that many local business entrepreneurs lack broad and diverse networks - especially inclusive networks - in the local area, and do not fully embrace or understand the value in networking, especially in terms of building disaster preparedness.
These findings are especially worrying considering the high failure rates of businesses affected by disasters.
