Fear is Negotiable: Business Survival Skills 101 will focus on risk mitigation and business preparedness steps in a practical and realistic way, for any sized organization in any industry. This show will drive risk and preparedness topics from discussion to action, and really educate about why businesses must prepare, and then provide the knowledge to get it done.
The topics we cover are related to current “hot topics,” such as workplace violence, technology resilience, emergency communications, the psychology of disaster, or cyber-attacks. At other times when there are no “hot topics”, issues covered will range from threat assessment, to human resource issues related to emergency management, to best practices in risk mitigation. Fear is Negotiable: Business Survival Skills 101 is broadcast live every Tuesday at 11 AM Pacific Time on the VoiceAmerica Business Channel.
