A Yorkshire-based business support agency is offering free one-hour sessions with business owners to ensure they have a business contingency plan.
Amy Russell, founder and managing director of Leeds-based Crescent VA is offering the support to ensure businesses can continue even if the key contact is taken out it.
After seeing a long-standing client hospitalised as a result of Covid-19, Amy received the call to action the plan which she had helped put together last year.
“Nobody wants to plan for the worst but I have seen first-hand how my client’s business is able to continue because we’d documented a business continuity plan, ensuring that they are not worrying about the company but are able to get the treatment they need in hospital.
“As a business owner myself I’m passionate about ensuring that people’s livelihoods are able to continue whilst the owner/MD or key worker is out of the business which is why I’m offering a one-hour session to help completely free of charge throughout the coronavirus pandemic.”
Our own founder and managing director, Ellie has been a client of Crescent VA’s for more than a year and benefitted from the additional support to put the emergency plan in place.
“I’m incredibly proud of the business I have built over the last five years and whilst I’m committed to staying as safe and healthy as possible, I feel reassured that there is a plan in place which would ensure MacComms continues if I am out of action for any reason.
“My immediate family now have Amy’s details and whilst I hope they’ll never need to contact her, if they do, we can all rest assured that Amy has the contacts and knowledge to ensure that my clients remain supported, my suppliers paid and that business will resume until I’m able to return.”
This offer of assistance comes as Amy’s firm, Crescent VA has added a new service to its portfolio. It now offers call handling, providing a remote receptionist to ensure calls into a company are always answered and responded to in a professional manner which accurately represents the business.
