Centium Webinar

April 27, 2020

This upcoming (7 May 2020) webinar features two leading Business Resilience and Ethical Conduct specialists discussing the risks and key issues emerging from the evolving COVID-19 pandemic.

Australia is facing a stark reality where disasters are becoming almost something of the norm and so organisations need to be innovative and adapt to the daily challenges and emerging risks they are being faced with.  Each one of us is both personally and professionally affected by the current COVID-19 outbreak.

In this webinar you will hear from a disaster and emergency management expert, David Parsons and leading ethic conduct specialist, Chris Wheeler on the risks and key issues emerging from the evolving COVID-19 pandemic, in addition to being provided with helpful and practical techniques on how to manage these risks.

The webinar will:

  • outline approaches on how you can best use business continuity and resilience in your organisations to take you through these unprecedented times
  • identify risk, conduct, performance and supervision issues that will arise as a result of what is likely to be a seismic shift in the way many employees conduct their day to day work, as well as the implications of this change for complaint handling, whistleblowing and investigations

We will hold a short panel discussion with the experts after their presentations to get some additional valuable insight.
