NAFC and SMC Webinar- Successfully Navigating COVID-19: Business Resiliency Planning in the Face of Uncertainty

Please register for this recorded ATA webinar.

Webinar Description:

In this webinar, the speakers will discuss how to examine the precise impact of this pandemic on your business, learn strategies to navigate COVID-19 and identify the areas within your business where resiliency is a competitive advantage. When uncertainty is the new normal, standing still isn’t an option. Drastic changes to working arrangements around the world and ever-changing expectations of customers, employees and governments mean it’s time to examine the variety of risks facing your organization.
From supply chain to working capital, its critical organizations must understand and strategize against their unique level of vulnerability in order to keep moving forward.

The speakers will explain the four impact zones where pandemics wreak havoc on businesses and recommend strategies to help you minimize risk and improve resiliency:

• Liquidity & Cash Flow Management
• Supply & Demand
• External Factors
• People & Labor
