Apocalypse Now and The Chocolate Factory at Bristol Business Network’s February Event

January 16, 2020

This 1887 painting, Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, by Viktor Vasnetsov. Depicts Death, Famine, War, and Conquest….in today’s business world you can add many more disasters…but can your business survive them?

Apocalypse and chocolate maybe headline grabbers but they are also the title for the business seminar at the event on February 19th at The Cowshed

Attracting senior decision-makers to the monthly lunchtime events, the unique, professional and business focused format offers an effective environment for building close working links and establishing that invaluable ‘support network’ of business contacts.

I shouldn’t be telling you how great the events are – come to an event and hear it from our members who will give you a clearer picture as to how they have benefited from being involved, some for over 20 years!

Apocalypse Now & The Chocolate Factory

How to prepare your business in case of disaster

This session will cover methodologies for making sure your business survives a disaster.

A holistic management process that identifies potential impacts that threaten an organisation and provides a framework for building resilience with the capability for an effective response that safeguards the interests of its key stakeholders, reputation, brand and value-creating activities.’ – Business Continuity Institute

What is your business continuity plan? How do you protect your business, stakeholders, reputation and future? Be Astute will cover Risk Assessments, Technology, Communication and more.
