Business continuity planning: How charities can safeguard their operations

We're all well aware of the importance of business continuity planning in ensuring the resilience of our organisations.


However, in today's rapidly changing world, it's crucial to have a plan in place as well as leverage innovative solutions that can help navigate uncertainties effectively.
