The Independent Media Agencies of Australia’s (IMAA) next two free webinar series for its members will feature respected Sky News commentator Paul Murray and Facebook ANZ Head of Independent Agencies, Harry Lowes and ANZ HR Lead, Ashley Jenkins.

Murray, an award-winning broadcaster who presents Paul Murray Live on Sky News Australia, will discuss the implications of COVID-19 on the Australian economy and our economic forecast.

Presented by Foxtel Media, the Paul Murray webinar will be held on Wednesday 8 April at 12.00pm exclusively for IMAA members.

Another webinar focuses on how Facebook is managing its people and remote teams through COVID-19. Harry Lowes and Ashley Jenkins will share Facebook’s experiences on this HR journey and the webinar will be held on Wednesday 15 April at 12.00pm.

The IMAA launched the series of free professional advice webinars to provide expert guidance and strategies to help its members navigate the financial, legal, economic and HR complexities as a result of COVID-19.

The first webinar was held on 1 April and featured Marc Walsh, Principal Client Advisor at Altus Financial.

“The first webinar with Marc was a great success as many of our members and their key staff joined the discussion on the Government’s stimulus package and the $130 billion JobKeeper payment which will provide a lifeline for many business owners in the independent media agency sector.”

“Providing help and advice and also community to the small to medium sized, Australian owned and independent businesses in our sector is an important feature of what the IMAA is all about. It’s a very important time to come together. We are all facing similar challenges during this period and we’re here to provide support and guidance.”

Commenting on the first webinar, Mediasmiths Managing Director, Angie Smith, said: “I found it insightful and informative. I do appreciate that the IMAA was able to offer this value to its members especially during a time that businesses in general are experiencing an overload of information pertaining to this crisis.”
