Crisis Response Strategies for Private Businesses

CPD Information: 1 Substantive Hour for Lawyers

Francesco Gucciardo, Lorenzo Lisi and Cecilia M. Moffat

External Speaker:
Peter Dent - Former Global Crisis, Management Leader, Deloitte Canada 


Within the last few weeks, businesses across Canada and around the world have been scrambling to prepare for uncertain times. Many businesses have had to take reactive measures with no formal business continuity strategy in place. Private, owner-managed and family businesses have been particularly impacted. We are in unprecedented territory with the COVID-19 pandemic, so how can businesses navigate through a crisis lifecycle? What are some emergency response measures we can use to mitigate operational and financial deficiencies that will occur during a crisis? Does your business have a recovery plan? How can you be proactive in the future, should the need to respond arise again?

Join members of the Aird & Berlis Private Business Services Group in a complimentary webinar that will focus on developing an emergency response plan and offer insight on ways to recover.

Topics include:

  • The crisis lifecycle
  • Identifying and assessing the risks to your business
  • Contingency planning and business continuity
  • Understanding your insurance coverage
  • Exit strategies and refinancing
  • Crisis communications and public relations
