Free event helps prepare your business for disaster
May 10, 2012
Is your small business prepared for a disaster? Many small businesses put off this important preparation because of concerns about lack of resources or expertise. But FedEx is here to help. FedEx has teamed up with the American Red Cross to host a live virtual round table on May 22 to teach you how to keep your business in business when disaster strikes.
On May 22 at 11:30 a.m. CT, log on to Facebook.com/FedEx and click the virtual roundtable tab towards the top of the page. From there, you will be able to access the FedEx Virtual Roundtable for Small Businesses and interact with experts from FedEx, the American Red Cross and the Joplin Area Chamber of Commerce. Ask your questions through the designated Facebook tab and/or by following #FedExARC on Twitter.
This free 30-minute discussion will be broadcast live from Joplin on the one-year anniversary of the worst tornado in the U.S. in 75 years. In addition to streaming over the FedEx Facebook page, the broadcast will be available on UStream. If you can’t attend the live broadcast, catch the rebroadcast at 6 p.m. CT. An expert will be available to answer your questions. At either time, you’ll be able to watch, listen, ask questions and learn – and download free resources.
Experts say one dollar invested in disaster preparedness may save seven dollars in recovery. That’s a 700% return on investment! What you will learn during this 30-minute roundtable may also save you hours, even days, if you are hit by an ice storm, power outage, fire, tornado, hurricane or other disaster. It may even save your business.
