Free Workshop on Boosting Business ResilencePublished Tuesday, 26 April 2016
Businesses in Ribble Valley – particularly those affected by the December floods – are invited to a free workshop on business resilience.
The workshop is being run by Ribble Valley Borough Council in partnership with national organisation CLASP, which provides support and training on carbon reduction and environmental resilience.
It will examine the impact of the December floods and future climate-related risks, and what businesses can do to protect themselves.
The workshop will also introduce a free online business resilience health-check interactive tool, which uses a multiple-choice questionnaire to help businesses consider how vulnerable they may be to extreme weather events and what actions they can take to build their resilience.
At the end of the workshop, participants will know how to access, use and understand outputs from the tool and be ready to apply them to their own business.
Up to 24 places are available on the workshop and a hot supper will be provided. Attendance is free, although booking is essential and participants will need to bring a laptop or iPad.
The workshop will take place on Tuesday, 17 May at the Old Grammar School in Station Road, Whalley, from 5.30 to 8.30pm. Further details and bookings are available from Melissa Thorpe, regeneration projects officer at Ribble Valley Borough Council, on 01200 425111.
