Business Continuity is a PROCESS, not to be viewed as a project with a start and end date. Did you know that only 25% of companies do not have a Business Continuity Plan and 60% have not considered how losing a supplier would impact their business? Retirement Readiness – it’s time to develop your strategy for the implementation of the ORPP!

Leading Successful Change at Toromont CAT

By Shannon Patterson

It’s not so much that we’re afraid of change, or so in love with the old ways, but it’s that place in between we fear…. It’s like being in the air between trapezes. It’s Linus when his blanket is in the dryer. There’s nothing secure to hold on to.” - M Ferguson

Warren Buffett said, “It takes 20 years to build a reputation and five minutes to ruin it. …”

It never really occurred to me, but when Linda Papadopoulos of Pearson Dunn Insurance mentioned it at our Brampton/Mississauga consortium SIG on February 23rd, a few things clicked. How Apple has recently strived to put the “made in America” stamp on their products by reminding us they are “Designed in California” (and “Assembled in China” rather than “Made in China”). That’s all about “reputation”. We all know how quickly a stock can dive, due to some internet gossip. On the positive side, being seen as environmentally conscious and socially responsible can be a real boon to a company.

“…If you think about that, you’ll do things differently.” Mr. B’s quote concludes.
