This seminar will provide an opportunity to think about and start to prepare a useable Business Continuity and Resilience Plan.  Looking at aspects such as risk analysis and getting an overall view of strategic planning to enable you to work on the business, not in it!

Many businesses may have thought in the past that Business Continuity and Resilience Planning were areas for large corporates – but that has changed since 2020!  Business strategic planning has proven to be one mechanism for sustainability in these challenging times. This seminar works across a range of areas to develop your thinking around the future, how you will get there and how you will identify and mitigate against known (or unknown!) risks.

  • A greater understanding of the importance of strategic planning
