2020 has seen a range of events test the resilience of the education sector far more regularly than most will have planned for. The profile of Operational Resilience planning has been raised, creating a huge opportunity to secure support from leadership teams and buy in from front line staff and students. 

How can Operational Resiliency professionals best make use of this increased profile to keep their people safe and their operations running? With the impacts of the global pandemic ongoing, what does the new operating model look like and which risk factors have grown in prominence post pandemic?

Join our panel of experts who will discuss:

  • Of all the challenges of the last 12 months, which ones did people adapt to best and what caught people out?
  • How will the operational models for High Education change?
    • Planning in a world where the goal posts will keep moving
    • What is your duty of care when an employee is working from home?
    • Fire drills when your fire warden is working from home, how emergency plans will need to adapt.
    • The need for increased resiliency as crisis teams are engaged on an ongoing basis
  • What new pressures and risks do leadership teams need to consider?
