Emergency Planning and Business Continuity Conference

22 October 2020 - Manchester

The phrase “not since World War II” has been used frequently to address these unprecedented times. A global watershed moment that has affected countless lives, and continues to shape everything on a day to day basis both professionally and personally. Measuring the impact of the pandemic is an ongoing process, taking potentially a number of years until it’s fully understood.

“Building the plane whilst flying it” is an adage that best describes the emergency planning that has taken place over the past several months. A national crisis, that was not only unforeseen, but created a new range of changes, challenges and terminology. ‘Covid-secure’, ‘social distancing’, ‘localised lockdown’ etc. have all become parts of our everyday lexicon.

This conference will look at the various stages of the pandemic and the resulting side effects. An opportunity to hear first-hand accounts from industry professionals thrown in at the deep end. Answering those important questions – how did they cope with the restrictions? What short and long term solutions were required? In what ways are they still dealing with the changes?

Join us and discover a wealth of information to assist with better understanding your organisation’s emergency plans and business continuity needs.
