Course Description

This webinar will provide you insight that would be helpful to Accountants to advice their clients and also CFO/Controllers/Finance Professionals in Industry for their business, with important steps that help them get through this period of anxiety and uncertainty.

As the world and all organizations continue to work through the issues created by the COVID-19 crisis, it is essential for the life of our economy that corporate and business leaders pro-actively develop processes to enable them to effectively react to the critical business impacts being seen and felt all over the world. If the economy is to recover and stabilize, a business must not just react, but also establish plans to “return to our new normal”. What is the new normal? Day-by-day that is changing, but just like any other business continuity process, we must learn how to adapt and react.

All companies deal and consider business continuity issues, but the current Pandemic has created a whole new level of concern related to the issue. We still have concerns over systems continuity and business operations, but all of a sudden the risks surrounding the supply chain, cybersecurity from work-at-home issues, unemployment and furloughs have crept into the topic. The wave of “work-at-home” and quarantine times will make the effective handling of business continuity more difficult.

Join Lynn Fountain as she focuses on certain priorities that organizations should consider to protect their businesses and help the economy recover. Those issues span management of human resource issues to balancing corporate liquidity and work with the supply chain.
