Business Crisis Management Panel Discussion and Workshop

April 25, 2013 at 1:00 PM until 4:00 PM

Posted under: Small Business Development Center

How long can your business afford to be out of business?

Don't wait until it's too late to learn the answer.

Natural disasters and operational crises can bring your business to an abrupt halt. How can you effectively manage weather-related disasters, power outages, employee issues, and other crises and remain afloat?

On April 25, 2013, the KSBDC at ESU is bringing together national and local experts to share their combined experiences in a 3-hour workshop and panel discussion with you and your business team.  Decision makers like you will walk away with a solid understanding of the details needed to develop and execute an effective disaster preparation and recovery plan including crisis communication, IT, data, documentation recovery, and more.

Former New Orleans business owner and Katrina survivor Brian Dennis will share his first-hand account of business recovery.  Carmen Sunda, Barry Parker, and Al Judd will share what they've learned from disaster preparedness in action. Dan Reisig will talk about the pragmatic consideration of recovery from an IT and data recovery perspective.

This is one event your business can't afford to miss.
