Campaign aims to help business to manage risk


By Jessica Brookes


A new campaign to help businesses manage risk and remain agile is being launched by Greater Birmingham Chambers of Commerce (GBCC). The Chambers plans to unveil the Business Adaptability and Resilience


Campaign (BAR) in September and it will be in three parts. The first is The Business Fundamentals, which will focus on financial


resilience, managing business performance and surviving unexpected challenges. The second part is Towards Future Proof Business Models, which will


highlight personal resilience, how to enable rapid adaptation and embedding innovation into business. The final part is named Shifting the Dial, examining what stakeholders,


such as Government and local authorities, need to change to aid businesses. As part of the campaign, members of the Chambers will share their


experience and advice via blogs, vlogs, thought leadership pieces and podcasts – all accessible through the Chamber’s website and available throughout September. The campaign will end with a panel discussion featuring a number of


chief executives and leaders in risk and business agility. The campaign topic was selected by the GBCC’s Chamber Council, a


group of Chamber members elected to inform and shape GBCC policy and campaigns activity. Henrietta Brealey, policy and strategic relationships director at the GBCC,


who is leading the campaign, said: “We hear from businesses every day that they are facing growing uncertainty worries, from Brexit to digital disruption to global economic forces and beyond. “Uncertainty in any form can have a detrimental impact on a business, and can stifle their ability to grow so it is no surprise that our GBCC


Chamber Council have selected the Business Adaptability and Resilience campaign as a top priority campaign for 2019. “With this campaign we want to help businesses learn how to manage


risk and become more agile in the current disruptive economic and political landscape. “The BAR campaign will provide Chamber members (large and small)


leading in this space with an opportunity to demonstrate their expertise, share best practice and ultimately support the vibrant local business community.”
