What is #ImpactPandemic
The rapid spread of COVID-19 at pandemic proportions has left us in challenging times. However, in the inconveniences that we face today, there are opportunities for us to help one and another. This is the chance for us as individuals to band together and work together to help sustain progress of the human race.
With this in mind, we are calling out to all those of you with Business Skills to make them available to Small Business Owners who need them the most. All we are asking for is for 3 hours of your time, spread across a period of time to consult with Small Businesses in the UAE to help them grow from strength to strength.
This project is a completely voluntary and all we ask is for those who benefit from the Business Skills of others to pay it forward to others in the marketplace. By sharing and spreading our knowledge we can create an #ImpactPandemic across the country and the globe.
How do we propose to create an Impact Pandemic?
While talking about a disease, we talk about R0 (Pronounced R-naught). R0 is the basic reproduction number and predicts the number of people who can catch a given bug from a single infected person. Currently the R0 for Covid-19 stands at about 2.2. This means that for every person infected 2.2 people could potentially catch the virus.
As we have seen, this R0 value has resulted in a rapid spread of the virus globally. Now here’s an idea, what if we used the same concept for social impact at Pandemic promotions? What if each of us helped 2.2 people/businesses? And what if each of them did the same by paying it forward? That’s what this initiative is all about. For the sake of convenience though, we’d like to use an R0 value of 3 for Impact Pandemic. In other words, we’d like you to help share 3 hours across 3 sessions to impact 3 businesses.

Why Should You share you Business Skills?
The outbreak of the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic has impacted our planet in a far greater way that we had ever imagined. All our lives are affected in some way or the other. It is in times like these that it is important for us to work together to make the world a better place.
As someone who has a consultancy practice or someone who works for an organization, you have skills that are invaluable to Small Business Owners. Taking a few hours out of your busy schedule to help these businesses can help them grow and sustain the economy and provide employment to many. We are #InThisTogether, so let’s get it done.
