You might not be able to prevent these extreme events, but it is possible to prepare your business for its impact so that you have the can remain operating or have the best chance of recovery.
And it isn’t always extreme events that can undermine your business – things as simple as loss of broadband or IT can be just as damaging as a major incident if you aren’t prepared.

- Monday 31 March - Lincoln - The White Hart Hotel
- Thursday 27 March - Boston - Elms Farm Cottages, Hubberts Bridge
