The workshop content is only a small subset of the content contained within the Atlas: Ready for Business mobile app. The workshop is designed to inspire attendees to take some basic steps to ensure organisational continuity. Workshop attendance is complementary to using the Atlas app to record and continue an attendee’s preparedness journey.
Workshops are a great way of creating an engaging learning environment where people have the opportunity to ask questions and support one another. The free app, Atlas: Ready for Business, complements the workshop material and organisations can use it to continue their preparedness journey following workshop attendance.
Any facilitator can present the material, regardless of their knowledge about business preparedness for crisis. The core material is universally applicable; however, it can be customised to suit any context.
As a downloadable package, it contains all the information and material a facilitator needs to organise and facilitate workshops to help small and medium organisations take basic steps to be crisis ready.
Small and medium organisations are the backbone of most economies. The goods and services they provide, the taxes they pay, and the employment they create are an important part of resilient communities. However, these organisations often have limited access to, or little time to seek out, advice about crisis readiness. The material contained in the Workshop in a Box aims to make crisis preparedness easy for owners and managers by teaching basic steps to help keep their organisations keep functioning after a crisis or disaster.
