Course Overview

The global COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the critical importance of organisational resilience and crisis management; but whilst it might be an immediate focus, COVID-19 is just one potential threat which organisations and businesses potentially face. A failure to plan, prepare for ad implement robust resilience cultures and frameworks can potentially be catastrophic.
