What is a Business Continuity Plan?
A Business Continuity Plan is a plan that focuses on the ability of a business to prepare for and respond to unexpected disruptions. The goal of this plan is to protect staff and assets so that a business can continue to operate.
Why is it important?
Emergencies and disasters are unavoidable and are happening more and more frequently in BC. Although it is impossible to predict what will happen in the future, it is possible to use the information available now to help reduce negative impacts on your business.
Well-prepared businesses have been proven to fare much better during and after a disaster because they have already considered the possible impacts to their business and developed strategies ahead of time to dealing with them.
What will be covered in the workshop?
In this workshop facilitator and British Columbia-based management consultant, Colin O’Leary, will walk attendees through the nuts and bolts of why businesses need to create a contingency plan and how to create one. By the end of the the second evening, participants will have had the opportunity to complete a contingency plan that they can use in the case of the unexpected.
With over 10 years of experience Colin O’Leary has helped to reshape numerous companies and grow them exponentially. In 2017 Colin founded O’Leary and Associates to provide consultation to businesses, non profits, public entities and social enterprises on financial, innovation and strategic management needs
Prior to O’leary and Associates Colin worked for Venture Kamloops and as a Manager for Business Retention and Expansion.
