Before a fire breaks out
You’ll be surprised to see how many preventative measures you can take to ensure that you don’t reach the point of crisis in the first place. And all the things you should do in order to be prepared for the worst. Because one thing is certain: Every company is vulnerable. Including yours!
Reducing the likelihood of an emergency, and if a fire does break out, knowing what to do. With the goal of keeping damage to a minimum and maintaining your reputation.
During a fire
Ideally we will already have put some preventative measures in place. Even so, no company is safe. Violations of regulations and the cunning of fraudsters are too wide a field for that. If we’ve already worked together, we’ll be able to extinguish the fire quickly. Getting the crisis under control – also regarding communication. If you’ve noticed irregularities, suspect fraud, or find yourself facing another kind of disaster, then give me a call! I’ll come with a troop of fire fighters that have proved themselves over decades and can successfully extinguish fires of all kinds.
Recognising the situation, having a differentiated overview, bringing the crisis under control. Limiting the extent of the damage and avoiding damage to your reputation.
After a fire
After any crisis, especially big ones that cause sensitive damage to your company, it’s important to hold a post mortem. What can we learn from this incident? How was it able to happen? Which red flags and monitoring measures didn’t work – or are missing?
Together, we perform an analysis in order to understand why a fire broke out, which influencing factors played a role, and how we can bring this understanding back into the company. It’s not about finding scapegoats, but about honest processing. How we learn lessons from the situation and minimise the identified causes for the future and/or how we can be better armed, in case it happens again.
Implementing these conclusions using common sense, and – in spite of the negative experiences – looking with trust at a fantastic team and associates. Where it makes sense, organising relevant workshops and qualifications for employees in key positions.
Running a business is a risk. However as long as we know the risk, we can decide how to handle it.
But please: Don’t leave these decisions to chance, nor to the principle of hope!
