15 July 2011 – BBC Friday – Guest Speaker, Dan Weedin

BBC will be hosting a very special guest speaker this Friday @ Flowering Around

Dan Weedin – “Beyond Fires & Floods”

As a small business owner, you are at greater risk for crisis management than your larger business brethren. You have less resources and tighter cash flow reserves and don’t have the flexibility to withstand disaster like corporate America. To that end, you more than anyone else need a sound crisis and risk management process. Crisis is guaranteed to occur in some form to all businesses. How you plan, prepare, practice, and respond will determine not only your survival, but your opportunity for growth.

Dan Weedin is a risk and crisis management specialist who will help you get started on creating your own plan so you will be prepared for whatever “big one” is around your corner. Whether it’s earthquakes and tsunamis in Japan, tornadoes in the Midwest; or computer hacking at Sony, you know by your very existence you’re at risk. Make sure you’re prepared to not only survive, but to thrive!

Dan Weedin is a Poulsbo-based consultant who works with clients all over the country to help them turn their risk into reward. He has 24 years experience in the industry at all levels and specializes in helping small to medium sized businesses hope for the best and prepare for the worst. Dan is also a regular columnist in the Kitsap Business Journal and an award-winning speaker. Visit Dan at DanWeedin.com
