Former director of Afghanistan Strategy and Plans at MOD to host free webinar at 4pm today to help companies get through coronavirus black hole


Chris Paton, a specialist in military wargaming and crisis planning, is hosting a free webinar at 4pm today offering advice for businesses during the coronavirus crisis.

A career Royal Marine, Paton’s last military role was Director of Afghanistan Strategy and Plans and headed up the withdrawal of troops from the region. Military planning and strategy is in his blood. 

Paton now works with organisations to solve issues such as stress testing, conflict resolution, crisis management etc. He applies military strategy and tactics to corporate issues. He works with large organisations (Unilever, the NHS, Waitrose, Lloyds of London) and small. He feels that a lot of his knowledge and advice could help corporates through the coronavirus crisis. 

Paton said he is really keen to help and impart free advice to businesses and wants to do his bit to help the UK weather this awful storm. A download will also be available afterwards and Paton will be running more over the coming weeks:
