SEASON’S GREETINGS

Capricorn will be continuing to work hard for its Members and Preferred Suppliers as 2020 comes to a close

Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year – prior to 2020 these well intended words may have sounded a little clichéd; but after a year of uncertainty and disruption I expect this year’s festive season will take on a special meaning for us all, as we celebrate and spend time with our loved ones.
It was with shared relief that we saw our Members, Preferred Suppliers, Field team and other repairers in Melbourne and across Victoria get on top of the second wave of COVID-19 to now enjoy some more relaxed lockdown measures.
I have no doubt that our Victorian community will demonstrate the same strength as our New Zealand colleagues, who we have seen benefit from a remarkable resurgence after enduring a similar style of lockdown, earlier in the year.
Of course, just because 2020 is ending, that does not mean we can be any less vigilant in protecting our personal and business health.
To assist both Members and non-members to do this, we have a number of resources available via the new CapHub website that can be found at www.capricorn.coop/caphub
New content includes access to an upcoming webinar on ‘Resilience’ with Psychologist Dr Marny Lishman that everyone in the automotive repair community is invited to attend.
Even before the pandemic hit, Capricorn’s State of the Nation Report 2020 discovered that 46 percent of workshop owners had difficulty maintaining a good work-life balance or finding time to take a holiday.
This webinar explores these findings in more detail to provide practical advice on how to reduce stress and maintain personal and professional wellbeing.
Other upcoming webinars also available through CapHub includes topics such as ‘Eight places technology is costing you productivity and profits,’ ‘How to charge what you’re worth without scaring your customers’ and ‘How to take a break, make a profit, and stay sane.’
You can register for these live events via www.capricorn.coop/caphub
Recordings of past webinars are also available through the CapHub website.
Sincerely once more, I do wish you and your families a joyous holiday period. Stay safe, stay strong, and I look forward to ensuring Capricorn continues to work hard for our Members and Preferred Suppliers to deliver even more success in 2021.
Yours cooperatively,
David Fraser
Group CEO, Capricorn Society Ltd
