POWERFUL LEADERSHIP IN PERILOUS TIMES:  PREPARING YOUR BUSINESS
- Strategies to mitigate the risks to your businesses from major climactic or man-made disruptions.
- Prepare your leadership to meet the challenges and seize future opportunities.

Broad critical issues your business needs to assess include:
- What are the risks that an event could disrupt or destroy your business?
- How can you manage and mitigate those risks and provide for your business continuity?
- Are there opportunities for your company not only to survive, but also to thrive by finding ways to help other parties in the public and private sectors to avoid, cope with or recover from crises?

Gain a broad understanding of major shifts in the global business environment that could result from serious disruptions, whether natural or man-made.  Develop or refine a set of proposals you can present to your board or planning group for implementation.  Hear from experts in major business continuity/disaster recovery planning and from executives whose companies have survived disasters.  Interact and network with other executive and professional attendees.
