Event Description

“If you fail to prepare, you are preparing to fail.” – John Wooden


Join the discussion to learn about resources and strategies to prepare your business and team for unexpected events.

You can’t make good business decisions when you are stressed or in shock during or immediately after a disaster. Having a tested plan created when everyone could think clearly can be the difference between failure and survival.

Learn how to build a culture of resilience in your manufacturing business. It’s all about keeping your employees and customers. It’s not just filling out a template or uploading contact lists to a cloud portal.

Business Continuity is a team sport - Learn what to consider in developing an incident response plan and strategy for business continuity. Whether a natural disaster (hurricane, tornado, or flood) or a man-made one (loss of key personnel or major customer, cybersecurity incident or reputational risk such as a recall) being flexible and resilient to disruptions in your business is critically important. Developing a robust awareness of the risks in your business and a proactive plan and company culture able to quickly mitigate, pivot and address those issues is critical to maintaining your competitive edge. The ability to maintain operations and retain and support your workforce in an uncertain and volatile business environment is important even if you are lucky enough to avoid major disasters.


Our 2024 hurricane and storm season is predicted to be off-the-charts. The FloridaMakes network of regional manufacturers associations and its fellow Manufacturing Extension Partnership centers across the Southeast US are pleased to offer a webinar highlighting key issues and resources to help you and your team ensure that you are prepared.
