Recent events have highlighted that the urgency of planning for a possible Pandemic is falling. Never the highest priority for orgnisations our latest study shows that programmes are stalling and plans are often unfinsihed or not even started. Amidst Financial turmoil it seems the threat is being overlooked or ignored... Confusion, misinformation and hype has mudded the waters choking the efforts of planners and those with responsibility for the proctection of business and our local communities
 
To address this worrying situation The Continuity Forum and our partners, are bringing you a Special Risks Summit, which will share the most current thinking from government and experts on the issues and measures needed.
 
This Special Risks Summit continues our series of Special events targeted at addressing specific issues affecting the sector, providing insight and advice in a series of ongoing high level Summits.
 
Each Summit will be supported by tailored in-depth research and involve leading experts and thought leaders. Accompanying each support will be a mini-series of supporting events ranging from Workshops all the way through to custom in-house sessions designed to further support change and development.
