During this ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, has your company been affected like most in Virginia?
Have recent events and economic uncertainty made you feel unprepared for future emergencies?
As a result, your many business support entities from across the Southwest Virginia region have come together to bring to your community “Business Resiliency Round Tables.” These events will bring together industry peers and resiliency experts, with the goal of providing valuable insight into how companies can take lessons learned through this current pandemic and prepare for potential business disasters. Through formalized processes, companies can become more resilient for the future.
Topics that will be covered through this interactive learning process include:
- Supply Chain Management
- Labor Force Management
- Financial Management
- Crisis / Management
- Risk Management
- Resiliency Leadership
- Recovery Strategies
- Operational Response
- And more…
Who should attend? Any business or organization that found themselves challenged during the recent pandemic events and economic uncertainty.
This project was funded in part by GO Virginia, a state-funded initiative administered by the Virginia Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD) that strengthens and diversifies Virginia’s economy and fosters the creation of higher wage jobs in strategic industries.
