Why we developed this service

These are unprecedented times for businesses and their people.  We want to provide you with accurate and logical advice to help you minimise the impact the Covid-19 pandemic will have on your business. 

A business continuity plan (BCP) pinpoints the most important parts of your business, identifies potential risks to these critical pieces and prepares you to recover as quick and easy as possible. Contingency planning is a crucial part of continuity planning — it means having a backup if your original plan no longer works. It’s your plan B.

Part of the plan is ensuring you maximise your Government entitlements and other support to minimise the downstream impact of a downturn in business. 

Your BCP is not limited to what to do after a natural disaster. It must cover any risks or threats that could disrupt your most important business activities.

Who should have a Business Continuity Plan Session
The service is designed for business owners to ensure they build resilience, preserve profitability, cashflow and employment for their team and survive through this difficult time.
Every business should have a plan in place to prepare for the impact Covid-19 will have.  We can advise you on your government entitlements, how to preserve profitability and cashflow, and help you identify key areas of your business to focus on.

What is involved
The approach to develop the plan is collaborative and involves pre-work, either one 4-hour or two 2-hour on-line facilitated planning sessions and developing a plan to implement.
