Klee Associates, publishers of JDEtips, SAPtips, and ORAtips is offering a Business Continuity / Disaster Recovery Workshop in the Houston area, on January 17-19, 2006. Participants will learn the skills and steps needed to prepare their own Business Continuity Plans, and also have portions of their current plans evaluated. Included are detailed discussion and training on business unit and technical recovery plans. It is open to all interested parties regardless of platform or ERP software.

We don’t have to tell you that there are many ways that your business can be harmed by natural disaster, death of key managers, etc.

Jumping on the bandwagon of the latest fear -- whether it be Hurricanes or Avian Flu, is not the right approach. A calm, reasoned approach that covers all possible threats is what is needed. This seminar covers disaster and disruption avoidance. Planning is a profitable exercise in that many incidents can be prevented, and others can be prepared for.

Does your business have what it takes to survive and keep running in the face of the next disaster?

This 3 day training session is led by two experienced Disaster Recovery planners, Gerry Printz, and David Ashley. Here’s what one of Gerry’s clients says about his services:

”By drawing upon his background and number of years in this profession, we have found Gerry Printz to be an extremely 'user friendly' and accommodating professional in helping us reach our disaster recovery comfort level. His approaches allow us to address our unique aspects, highlight areas of awareness that we would never come up with on our own, and provide a complete approach to solving our problems. His customized user training was instrumental in getting program buy-in from our entire organization.

I highly recommend the services of Gerry Printz to any one who wants to ensure that their Disaster Recovery plan actually works.”

Lee Miller, VP of Quality for Miller Transporters, Jackson, MS.

Participants will learn the skills and steps needed to prepare their own Business Continuity Plans, and also have portions of their current plans evaluated. Included are detailed discussion and training on business unit and technical recovery plans.
