Tips for small business owners to avoid and resolve disputes

As small businesses work on recovering from the impacts of the pandemic, resolving disputes quickly and efficiently has never been more important. Victorian Small Business Commissioner Lynda McAlary-Smith will talk about how small businesses can put into place good business practices to avoid and resolve matters that might come up at this time, and ways the Victorian Small Business Commission (VSBC) can help. 

Key topics include: 

  • strategies small business people can use to prevent disputes and sidestep unnecessary impacts on their day to day operations 
  • practical and effective tips to help small businesses resolve disputes themselves and maintain positive business relationships  
  • how to manage conflict and de-escalate difficult situations  
  • ways the VSBC can help resolve disputes without the need for court, including through helping early on and arranging for low-cost mediation.
