Lockdown Learning, Life Hacks and LOLs

A 7 day lockdown came into effect last night at 6.00 pm ACST in South Australia, and over the next few days you might be looking for stuff to do, things to learn, ways to support your business and other businesses.

Time to catch up, listen to those webinar recordings, create something new and try a different activity, plus AB Ventures send their prayers and wishes to South Australia with this video and images from Bhutan.
