Adapt. Change. Grow.

Now more than ever change is rapid and the goal posts are constantly shifting.
It’s an ever-evolving world and the building industry isn't immune.

In recent times, the need to re-think and find ways to soar above the rest has never been more important for business survival, growth and longevity. Many businesses have sought alternative routes when faced with hurdles on the road to a post-COVID future. For some, this has led to fresh ideas which have allowed their businesses to take flight, rising above the tough times.

At 2021 Roadshow, we’ll discuss what we anticipate will return to normal for our industry, what’s here to stay and other changes that are on the horizon that you need to be aware of. We’ll deliver expert insight on what you need to do to approach things differently, topics you need to keep up with and how to prepare and future-proof your business.

This year, we’ll equip you with the knowledge, takeaways and practical tips in these key areas:

Outlook for 2021/economic forecast + dealing with delays, shortages & cost hikes

The outlook is good, with stimulus creating a solid pipeline of work in 2021. But what does this mean for busy builders and tradies? The flipside is material delays, cost hikes and trade shortages. We’ll walk you through some practical steps you can take to protect your business contractually.


While a busy industry is what we’re aiming for, delays and shortages as a result of strong demand, can lead to problems, such as cashflow issues. Why is cashflow is so important and what you can do? What can you change to futureproof and protect your business next time? And what happens when the stimulus comes to an end?

Mental health

A buzz word at the moment, we’ll talk about why it’s so important to take a proactive and pre-emptive approach to mental health for your employees. We’ll talk how taking a preventative approach can mean positives in other areas of your business and also generate discussion on how COVID has impacted members across Queensland.

No jab, no work

We'll explore what the vaccination requirements might look like for our industry, what you can and can’t enforce as an employer and other implications for your business.
