The Lens on how individuals and businesses can be better prepared for a worst-case scenario

The Lens podcast
In this episode of The Lens, our host Oli Barrett talks to Stewart Steel, CEO of Sedgwick UK and Simon Crowther, Founder of Flood Production Studios.

They discuss how both individuals and businesses can be better prepared for worst-case scenarios, and how collaboration might just be the key element that is missing from their strategies.
If you have a business, and you are wondering if you would be ready for flooding, a cyber attack or a security breach, we have a free readiness test with simple questions and practical tips.
