Showcase SA Success Stories with Prohibition Liquor Co, Wednesday 25 November, 3pm

This new online event will introduce co-founder of Prohibition Liquor Co., Adam Carpenter, to share his business’s story of survival through the initial lockdown, and how it was able to rethink its operation to keep staff on the books and the shop floor operating.

“We want to help South Australian businesses – whether a Showcase SA member or not – that have found themselves in a very difficult situation today,” says Showcase SA co-founder Steve Testar.

“The online Showcase SA Masterclasses we’re running over the course of the next week will be especially useful for business owners and managers of teams who will find benefit on ways to communicate and care for staff during this time.

“And our Success Stories event with Adam Carpenter and Prohibition Liquor gives business owners and key decision-makers a chance to learn and draw inspiration from one of their peers’ achievements in the last lockdown.

“It’s important South Australian businesses support each other and we want to provide support where we can.”
