"Westpac’s online business recovery course helped kickstart me mentally after the impacts of COVID-19. The content of the course was extremely current and very useful for small businesses – particularly now, in the wake of the COVID-19 crisis. Small businesses in Australia have been through so much in the past 12 months and it’s great to see Westpac and TAFE NSW teaming up to do something practical to help them move forward."
