Exercising the Human Element in Business Continuity
Meet The Experts - 25 Apr 2012
A business plan is perhaps the most essential element in starting and maintaining a business, charting a course and a direction toward positive growth and success. However like all plans, failure will always be an inevitable option. Research has shown that across the sectors, 66% of new establishments were still in operation 2 years after their birth, and 44% were still in existence 4 years after. It is not surprising that most of the new establishments disappear within the first 2 years and then only a smaller percentage disappeared in the subsequent 2 years. These survival rates do not vary much by industry.
Studies have also shown that the main cause for a business failure would be unforeseen circumstances such as major natural disasters (floods, earthquakes etc.). This is why many businesses have proceeded to adopt and implement a Business Continuity Plan for the purpose of safeguarding their interests in more ways than one.
Come join us on Apr 25th, 2012 for our second Meet-The-Experts session on Exercising the Human Element in Business Continuity at Furama Hotel Bukit Bintang, Kuala Lumpur. Join us as we explain the facts on the importance of testing and ensuring that your Business Continuity Plan is up to date and in tune with an ever changing world.

"Too many CEO's play ostrich about the possibility of a recall," said Jonathan Bernstein, president of national consultancy Bernstein Crisis Management and editor of "Crisis Manager," an international email newsletter. "They wait until the recall is required and then try to figure out what to do, resulting in additional risk for consumers and the company's reputation."
