IoD North Yorkshire Fellowship Forum Online - Business Resilience: Practical steps to move forward with resilience

02 Jul 2020
IoD Yorkshire & North East Online, Online
IoD North Yorkshire members are invited to join our new Fellowship Forum created to support local IoD members throughout these extraordinary times.

This week, Led by Tony Webster MScSD MIoD ACIB, we will explore Business Resilience, breaking it down into bite size pieces. 

Resilience is a much used word and we will explore the real understanding of business resilience and what is needed to be resilient? 

Looking at the issues and challenges that you are faced with, we will discuss options, examples and what you as the Director or leader can be doing to build resilience in your business.  

It’s one thing understanding it and another doing something about it? We will explore a range of practical tools and ideas, providing steppingstones to move forwards. Ideas on how you can apply these to own business, with some practical steps. 


At the end of session you will be able to clearly – 
- Assess and prioritise the issues or challenges facing you
- Start building a practical plan to move forwards
- Enable Business Resilience to be a core element of your strategy 
- Become Stronger as standard 

With 25 years 'been there and done it' experience at Board level in business, coupled with a recent MSc in Sports Directorship, Tony has a unique perspective on performance. 

His WayFinder consultancy helps businesses and Directors find their way to high growth and high performance in a sustainable way. A portfolio Non Exec Director, IoD Ambassador, Leeds City LEP Growth & Winning Pitch Growth coach.

A straight talking Yorkshireman, focused on finding practical solutions and the way forward.
 
The group will be facilitated by North Yorkshire Vice Chair, Ian Garner and IoD Ambassador Nick Bradley.
