Recap from our COVID-19 Biblical Business Solutions Forum in Malaysia!
As a part of our efforts to help Christian entrepreneurs around the world thrive during the current crisis, we held a very successful virtual COVID-19 Biblical Business Solutions Forum for Biblical Entrepreneurs and business owners in Asia with a focus on Malaysia. Based on our survey of the event attendees, over 50% of attendees were business owners with employees and though 73% lost revenue due to the crisis, only 9% let go of any employees and 72% are still optimistic about the future despite COVID-19.
During the Forum, we shared the impact of COVID-19 around the world, the impact it has had on Nehemiah Project, and our response as well as our commitment to serving entrepreneurs during this difficult time. Our panel consisted of three Malaysian business leaders, a government advisor, and a Pastor. They answered questions from how they’ve been impacted, how they are dealing with the crisis, and advised on how other entrepreneurs can thrive during this difficult time. The event was attended by over 126 people. Many shared that the event was helpful and beneficial in helping them thrive during this difficult time. Replay this powerful moment by watching the video below.
At the end of the event, over 65% of the attendees shared that we can help them most during this time by providing them with training, coaching, and community. Our post-event survey revealed that 83% of attendees were more optimistic about the future with 83% of them planning to join us at the next forum event! We will have a follow-up event called Biblical Business Tools for Success after COVID-19 for Asia on 2 May at 10:00AM – 12:00 PM Malaysia time. We are planning a similar event in other markets around the world: Africa, North America, Europe, and Latin America.
