Chris Case | Dan Lawrie Insurance Brokers Ltd. - General Insurance

How To “Be Prepared” In Your Business (or Business Continuity simplified)


Asked to describe a “Disaster” or “Emergency”, most people comes up with a physical description such as a fire, flood, hurricane or earthquake. However, for a Business Owner, there are many more threats that they need to contend with. While this is intuitive enough, more than 60% of Business Owners do not have a formal plan for dealing with an Emergency or Disaster. Do YOU have a plan for your Business? If you do not, that’s OK.


On Thursday June 29th, plan to join BNI Business Connections One, where Chris Case from Dan Lawrie Insurance Brokers will help you take the first steps to “Making  Your Plan”. Chris will share the “7 Steps for Business Continuity” and provide insight into the challenges managing Cyber, Privacy and Data Security. Your take-aways will include:

-          Identification of key risks for your business, and,

-          Process to actively manage key risks


This session is ideal for Business Owners and Centers of Influence who have a vested interest in helping organizations become more resilient.
