Last year saw a series of negative headlines from cyber-attacks to high-profile business failures. The fallout from these stories shaped a number of responses affecting the cleaning industry, and this year promises to be an important time for business resilience, especially with Brexit on the horizon.
For this reason, BCC member the British Institute of Cleaning Science (BICSc) is delivering its first ‘BICSc Lab’ event dedicated to business resilience in association with Rubbermaid Commercial Products. The event will take place on 15 May at QE2 Centre in Westminster, London, and is open to all industry professionals. The event offers attendees a chance to hear about business resilience from guest speaker, Hanna-Maria Ahonen, a strategy advisor and independent board member, as well as keynotes from Citation and Darwin Clayton.
The agenda will include:
- Supply chain and risk management in uncertain times with Citation
- A lesson in business resilience with Hanna-Maria Ahonen
- The role of the loss adjustor and handling a business liability claim with Darwin Clayton
- The future with BICSc
- Exhibition with Rubbermaid Commercial Products
- Networking lunch
Michelle Iland from BICSc said:
“When working in the cleaning sector it’s important to do as much as you can to understand potential issues so that your business resilience strategies are relevant and fit for purpose. There are many events on resilience, but this one is specifically for the cleaning sector. It’s a chance to network with peers, reflect on lessons learned and come together to discuss ways that we can all improve our business resilience.”
