Building the Resilient Business

Be resilient.

Educational Forum | 5.3.18 | 7:30 – 11:45 a.m. | TechSolve

Every business faces threats – from a cyberattack to a warehouse flood, from losing a key employee (or your most important customer) to your biggest competitor. You simply cannot insulate your business from risk or loss.

But if you build a resilient business, and equip your team to respond in the moment, you can manage your risk, mitigate your loss and prepare for the unthinkable.

The Outcome

Throughout the day, participants will “score” their risks so that they can prioritize their next steps. Then, they will draft an action plan that includes short-term and long-term steps that will build resiliency into their business.

Who Is This For?

Designed for the business owner and their spouse or key decision-makers in the business.  Encouraged for more than one business associate to attend and ideal for both leadership generations in family business.


This highly interactive half day session is part workshop, part panel discussion. Participants will use a mobile polling devise to gauge concerns and spur dialogue.

The Purpose?

Business owners and leadership will:

  • Explore the main pillars of contingency planning and the impact each has on their business’ many stakeholders
  • Gain insight into the role leadership and family plays in a business’ ability to be resilient
  • Understand operational contingency planning and how to prepare for the great unknowns

Other Benefits

  • Explore the steps to take to protect the business should the leader unexpectedly leave or should the company experience a disruption in operations.  
  • Understand the four components that impact how your business will respond in a time of crisis and find out if you’re ready
  • Hear real life stories from businesses that have experienced a risk and bounced back.  Hear what contingencies they had in place to help get them through a difficult situation.
