Every business faces exposure to risk – be it natural, such as bushfires or floods, or man-made, such as accident or illness. Without a plan to activate, your ability to shield your business from the fallout is already on the back foot. Be prepared. This three-and-a-half-hour workshop will show you how to put in place a practical plan to follow in the event of a threat to your business. You never know when you’ll be thankful you did.
A crisis is no time to expect to make sound business decisions. You won’t have to if you already have in place a plan to activate when normal day-to-day business is interrupted. Learn how to assess the ‘what ifs’ and plan ahead to meet them, foot forward, at this practical, interactive workshop packed with relevant, useful advice to improve the continuity and resilience of your business. If you take that time now, your ability to successfully navigate a crisis with your business intact will significantly increase. It may even help you to sleep better at night. For some businesses, planning ahead will be essential. Crisis and recovery from disaster does not separate business from the personal. As a business owner you have responsibilities to your staff and customers as well as yourself, your family and your business. Being prepared is better than floundering. Understand the various different types of disaster (natural, human or health), and be guided, step by step, to identify and assess your exposure to risk. Then plan and prepare how you would manage your response and recovery. Access to a free follow-up mentoring session and a copy of the e-book ‘Are U Ready? Surviving small business disaster’ is included in this Small Business Victoria workshop, one of many that have helped businesses get started in Victoria for more than 10 years.
