Lester Keizer, CEO of Business Continuity Technologies is scheduled to speak at the 2018 Annual Business Resilience Conference April 12 at the Mandarin Hotel, Las Vegas NV. The title of his presentation is:

Are You Personally Ready for the Next Disaster?”

This session will discuss personal and family preparedness from a proactive perspective. Taking care of your family and self is Job One in our disaster prone world.

Disasters often come out of nowhere, and even in the event you have advanced warning it is often not enough time to prepare. Whether it’s a severe storm, cyberattack, workplace accident or economic crisis, it’s important to have a plan in place to ensure your business survives the worst. Resilience is key, but preparation is vital.

According to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), more than 40% of businesses never reopen after a disaster, and for those that do, only 29% were still operating after two years. To make sure you’re prepared for the worst, you need to implement a plan that is thorough, practiced and accessible in a crisis.

This conference provides valuable education, training and best practices to assist organizations prepare, respond, and recover.

Business Resilience Conference has held over 80 conferences across more than 50 cities in the United States. Our goal is to help organizations stay in business. Business Resilience Conference succeeds by centering on relative and modern topics on disaster management.
