The online webinar series is being put together by UCLan to help businesses and organisations across the region and nationally to recover and thrive post Covid-19.
The series, which starts on Wednesday, by UCLan PROTECT (Place for Resilient Organisations and Total Emergency Capability Training), which is a specialist crisis and emergency management centre to help organisations improve emergency preparedness and become more resilient.
There will be six to begin with and apart from one , will involve pre-recorded presentation followed a live question and answer session, looking at topics such as policing the lockdown, on-line security, the development of psychological support for front line workers and their families as well as the long-term effects of Covid-19 on businesses and the economy.
UCLan’s Dr Carol Cox, UK Lead for PROTECT within the School of Forensic and Applied Sciences, said: "The pandemic triggered by COVID19 has been unprecedented, impacting on every person, business and industry. It has demonstrated loud and clear that companies and organisations need to build resilience into their DNA.
The ability to react quickly and decisively to change, and to be able to recover quickly from a disaster, is central to long-term sustainability.
“The university is at the forefront of developing qualifications in this area and through UCLan PROTECT we have access to expertise drawn from disciplines across the University to provide a holistic approach to crisis and emergency management.
"Our businesses and organisations have to become truly agile and this free webinar series is a great opportunity to exchange ideas and learn from each other for the benefit of all."
The sessions are aimed at people in professional roles in areas such as business, emergency planning, digital security, psychology, health and policing.
