Client Comments
  • Does your Business Plan or Venture Capital Presentation include
    leader succession, business continuity and/or other risk
    management components?

  • How prepared is your business to reopen immediately after
    a natural or man-made disaster?

  • Will your customers / clients, suppliers / vendors still be there?

  • How immune is our homeland and your community against
    additional terrorist attacks?

  • Regardless of all your good efforts--without advance business
    continuity planning--your business may have to close due to a
    hurricane, earthquake, wildfire, severe storm, flood--or a terrorist
    attack.

Deadly biological epidemics are an all-too-real possibility--whether by natural cause or through intentional release. Following this program participants will know:

    disease spreads in their city...or across America

    keep all employees at home for weeks

    during a regional or national epidemic
  • Who has legal authority to use guns on citizens if you or
    your employees (and families) resist forced quarantine

    closed down for days to weeks
  • Who really controls the most dangerous pathogens in
    the world and how they get into unscrupulous hands
  • Whether your local hospitals and public health agencies
    are prepared for a mass-casualty bio-event

    prevention to political advocacy
  • About dangerous, ongoing activities that could wreak
    havoc on the business sector...and America's economy
  • What we have learned from various mock disasters--and

    WHAT CLIENTS HAVE TO SAY...

    Mr. Thompson's presentation was not only timely but informative. It addressed the threat of biological terrorism that soon materialized on the east coast. Such a discussion by a noted speaker and author is ideally suited to college audiences across the country.

    Gloria E. Miranda, PhD., El Camino College

    I found your keynote to be extremely informative and inspiring. Others agree, you are the best speaker in years...well worth the investment.

    Don Steel, President, Planned Investment Co., Inc

     

    Spellbinding would not be too strong a word for the attention I gave and could see others giving to your talk. You offered us some very sobering insights and presented them in a businesslike way. I was inspired by your ending the talk with words of hope.

    Jack Cooney, OLG

    Excellent knowledge and it hit home. Highly recommend.
