Meet the Experts and learn about Kansas resources
One of Kansas SBDC’s own, Brian Dennis will be facilitating the event and providing a workshop entitled, “When the Idea of a Plan Isn’t Good Enough: Policy and Procedures.”
Is having an idea of a plan enough? Having a living document that reflects your goals for recovering from a business interruption will improve recovery time. Brian Dennis discusses critical elements surrounding a sharable policy and procedures manual for small business.
In addition to Brian, we’ll have speakers from the FBI, 184th Cyber Intelligence Wing of the Air National Guard, Wichita State University, Friends University, Butler Community College, as well as the private sector.
A full event schedule can be found here.
