We want to do everything we can to make sure our Vashon community never experiences statistics like those. That's why we've put together a special, intensive free workshop for Island businesses. You will....

  • Hear the latest on area hazards and what help to expect after a major event.
  • Be guided through an individualized assessment exercise.
  • Receive tools to help you build a truly resilient business.
  • Help set community goals and the topics for future workshops.

This Open for Business! workshop series comes to you from VashonBePrepared and has been enthusiastically endorsed by our partner, the Vashon Chamber of Commerce. These workshops have been designed to serve all Island businesses regardless of size or location.

Space limited!

The workshop will be led by business continuity and disaster expert Shelby Edwards of ODT Associates, LLC. Most recently the Global Director of Business Continuity and Crisis Management at NIKE, Edwards lives right here on Vashon and she brings to us her several decades of experience in planning for, responding to and recovering from major events.

A small number of complimentary private consulting sessions will be made available to businesses participating in this inaugural event.
