The new initiative aims to develop a Business Continuity Management & Crisis Management Plan for Phuket by bringing together Phuket businesses and thus strengthen Phuket’s resilience in case of another disaster.
The recent tsunami scare has highlighted the importance of disaster preparedness and will hopefully serve to alleviate not only business owners’ but the general public’s worries about what to do in the event of a disaster, the group says.
The organisation of the project is also being undertaken by the Thai Environment Institute and the National Protection Committee Safety & Environmental Service.
Sean Panton, Chief Executive Officer of SEEK Phuket said, “As businesspeople in Phuket we have a responsibility to work together to help plan for the future of the island and a sustainable business model with correct responses. We invite all the relevant and interested business owners and operators to this complimentary launch.”
The seminar will include an overview of the project goals and process and also a summary of the current Crisis Management Plan with VP Thai Environment Institute Dr Chaiyod Bunyagidj and Khun Prakob Petcharuttana, the Managing Director of MPC Safety and Environmental Service.
The seminar will run from 8.30am - 12.30pm on Wednesday, May 23, at TSLC’s The View.
