Any crisis in a disaster situation, from a server malfunction to a flooded basement, could force a business to close its doors, reducing productivity and profits and possibly resulting in a permanent shut-down. Next week, in as part of National Preparedness Month through the U.S. Small Business Administration and Agility Recovery Solutions, three business owners who faced losses of property and income after a disaster will share their experiences and what they learned about preparing for the next disaster.
On Wednesday, Sept. 28, Scott Jenkins, Terry Flood and Joel Simpson will describe how their companies recovered from losses caused, respectively, by a tornado, water damages from a burst pipe, and flooding. The three will also offer tips on how to protect themselves and their bottom line, based on their own experiences.
Jenkins is senior vice president of Worthington Federal Bank, Huntsville, Ala.
Flood is president of The Flood Group, Long Island, N.Y.
Simpson is vice president of sales and marekting, The O. Berk Company, Union, N.J.
The free presentation is from 2 to 3 p.m. EDT. Space is limited. Register at https://www1.gotomeeting.com/register/660249057
A question-and-answer session will follow their presentation.
