You don't plan for crisis until it's knocking on your door....

Crisis Management and Planning has always been a fundamental aspect of business sustainability but it is now an integral part of all operations.

The folks who never consider it mandatory are SMEs yet they are the most vulnerable. BP paid billions of dollars in penalty for the North Sea oil spill crisis but they still remain a company till now. You are not BP and so you might not survive it…

It was therefore an absolute pleasure to be asked to deliver a leadership program on Crisis Management and Planning yesterday to senior directors of one of the most reputable financial organisation in Zambia - UNIFI

Because all my trainings are highly practical, they all walked out of the training with all the core ingredients and materials of a Crisis Management Plan for the organisation.

Don't react to it....plan for it...

Thanks to Dr Nellie Kangwa and the Chief Exec of UNIFI for an incredible well put together event.

While it is not right to judge a book by the cover, it's okay to guesstimate a book by the cover.

Trouble is all new employers, investors, project partners are 'guesstimators' first before knowing your content.

The secret is to get them to like your cover enough to pick it up especially in a world filled with too many 'dodgy' books.

72 percent of consumers say that packaging design influences their purchasing decisions.
