Business owners must expect the unexpected—AND prepare for it! That’s the message of the 5th Annual Business Super Prepared”, a conference and expo planned for Wednesday, September 27, at the Lorenzo Cultural Center, Macomb Community College, in Clinton Township.
Top area hospitals and county emergency management teams have joined forces to present this event along with the Macomb County Chamber.
“We read headlines every day about terrible situations that businesses go through—from fires to workplace violence to computer security breaches,” said Grace Shore, CEO of the Macomb County Chamber. “While we can’t predict what will happen, we can and should do our best to be prepared. Having a plan in place with the ability to respond quickly could mean the difference between business survival and failure.”
Local industry experts will present workshops and case studies on topics including:
- Cyber Security – Single Employee Click
- Managing Disruptive Behaviors
- Being Prepared: A Community Responsibility
- Human Trafficking
- Case Study: Equifax Security Breach and what it means to you!
Event sponsors are: Beaumont Hospitals, United Shore Baseball League, General Motors, Accident Fund and McLaren Macomb. This event is presented in partnership with Leadership Macomb and Macomb County Emergency Management.
“This is really valuable information that everyone needs to consider. We hope our business community and area municipalities will take advantage of the dynamic program and resources that we have assembled,” said Vicki Wolber, director of Macomb County Emergency Management and Communications.
The conference and expo take place from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Macomb Community College’s Lorenzo Cultural Center. The event costs $15 and includes continental breakfast and lunch and vendor show. Register online at Macomb County Chamber or phone (586) 493-7600 with questions.
