Built to Last: How To Shockproof Your Business

  • The Shop at the CAC 900 Camp Street New Orleans, LA, 70130 United States (map)

According to a 2015 survey by The City of New Orleans, 77% of New Orleans businesses do not have a continuity plan, and nationally, the American Sustainable Business Alliance found 57% of small businesses have no disaster recovery plan.

Every business faces “shocks,” both big and small. What sets New Orleans’ most resilient businesses apart is their built-in “shock-absorbers.” They can’t prevent their businesses from feeling major disasters like hurricanes or earthquakes, but they are prepared to take the brunt of them and mitigate minor shocks like a power outages or construction. 

This workshop shares how prominent, successful local businesses build “shock absorbers” into three key aspects of their businesses. There will also be resources available to help you start or update your continuity plans.
