COVID-19 has shown organisations that the threat of a pandemic needs to be taken seriously, emphasising the importance of having a business continuity plan and a pandemic plan. Clark’s book focuses on how an organisation can create a new or update an existing pandemic response plan. He highlights the similarities in managing different types of crisis, whether it is a pandemic, or other threats such as cyber attacks, floods, fires, civil disturbances, terrorism, etc.

The book looks at several case studies, reviewing how different industries have been impacted by COVID-19, with Clark also reflecting on his own personal experience during the pandemic. He discusses the ways the virus has affected our economy and daily routines, and the psychological impact. The book also provides useful free resources that offer further guidance/information.

Explore how:

  • Your organisation can create and validate a pandemic response plan;
  • To manage your organisation when faced with a pandemic threat;
  • Lockdown has impacted our mental health, economies and working culture; and
  • Organisations from different industries have adapted in response to the pandemic.

“Bob’s book, Business Continuity and the Pandemic Threat, does a spectacular job filling a gaping void in the pandemic preparedness and response literature. It should be required reading for every CEO concerned with keeping their business in business and every corporate risk manager, regardless of the type of business. He’s written with an engaging, rare combination of hard-nosed business survival strategy and insightful human stories of pandemic experiences.”

- Dr Jonathan Quick, MD MPH, global health leader with expertise in pandemic and epidemic threats
