What's your Plan?

2017 is the 10th year of the Lykes Insurance Learning Series: Excelleration™ and is brought to our community as timely education events to help businesses excel.  With awareness comes opportunity for action.

Our next “season” is almost upon us, and the May Excelleration will focus on the timely topic of disaster preparedness.  Tony Sadiku will bust some myths for us on the basics of tropical storms and what you need to know to prepare; prime storm concerns for Southwest Florida; evacuation issues; and expectations for 2017.  Nick Renfro will then focus on the importance of a Business Continuity Plan (BCP) to help restore and keep critical business functions going within the first 72 hours of a disaster.  You will learn the basics of how to create an effective BCP that can help ensure business survival.
