Workshop – NorCal

Resilient Workplace – Webinar     (Register here)

We no longer need anyone to tell us about business interruptions – we’ve been living COVID’s challenges for over 1 year – but then add wildfires, storms, power shut-offs, earthquakes… What can we do to ensure our businesses survive? 

GOOD NEWS: There are key actions, taken now, can reduce future impacts to every business, its people, customers, and community. 
Our families, employees, and customers are all relying on us to be operational, but businesses may lack the information or tools on how to do this.

This is where we can help you! Disaster Resistant Business (DRB) is hosting the Resilient Workplace Webinar, targeting NorCal small businesses & non-profits, especially woman and minority owned companies. SEATS ARE LIMITED.  Those who attend will receive a FREE TOOLKIT and other NorCal resources!

  • Learn simple steps businesses can take now to be more resilient to ANY potential interruption and help you make better decisions when new crises strike 
  • Enhance your ability to make better decisions in a crisis
  • Help your employees and customers when they need it most
  • Beat your competitors by being first to open your doors after disaster strikes
