CONSULTING – WORK WITH ME
“Let me help you plan for those risks before they become a problem, and help you quickly respond and recover, no matter the challenges!”
When you work with me you will have access to experience, research, and education on business, contingency planning, disaster and emergency management. You will also have access to the Deliberate Plan© method, the easiest way to plan for contingencies. We will work together to anticipate potential challenges and create strategies to cope with them.
As we work together we will assess your organization’s risks, plan, develop strategies, implement, practice and evaluate THE plan that fits the specific needs of your organization. I will be with you, through the process of developing the plan that will give you the peace of mind that you desire, ensure the success and continuity of operations for years to come.
By the time our work together is done, you’ll feel confident that you will know what to do, make the best decisions, even when facing challenges or uncertainties. You will feel confident that you have taken all the possible steps to protect you, your organization, your legacy, and you will be in control. You will have the ability and the strategies to react appropriately when things emergencies or crises occur, and recover quickly!
Who am I? How can I help?
Having experienced disasters, I know that it takes years of dedication and hard work to build a business, a sense of community, and a place to call home; but only one event to see it all destroyed.
If you are in a leadership position, let me assure you crises will happen. Are you prepared to respond and to take on the challenge of the aftermath?
Hi! My name is Lisandra Pagán Ph.D., I am a disaster preparedness and recovery consultant. For over 8 years I have researched, taught, recommended and consulted on disaster preparedness and recovery strategies with business owners, community groups, individuals, local, State and the Federal government. I do believe in creating a culture of preparedness and planning. That’s why I help individuals and organizations at all levels to prepare for contingencies, or events (natural or man-made) that can alter or completely change our lives.
I will help you, have a plan to respond, to prevent permanent business shut-downs, major losses, and delayed economic recovery. Truth is, that unless recovery begins quickly, and the members of the community see ongoing recovery efforts, and business doors open again, trust is lost, hope is lost, people leave, and recovery becomes more difficult. Let me help you plan, so we can speed the process. Shall we?
First, I want to share with you some of the benefits of developing a plan:
1. You will prepare your business or organization to face any challenge (strategic planning).
2. You will improve operations and processes (reduce risks and losses).
3. You will be prepared to get back up and running faster than others without a plan (accelerated recovery).
4. On top of that, you have the advantage of being one of the firsts to recover, while others still figuring out their next steps (competitive advantage).
5. Your business or organization becomes a critical part of the overall community recovery.
You are part of something bigger! We all face challenges, the difference will be your ability to bounce back. You can decide now how to best deal with those challenges, and make a difference between recovery success or failure.
I believe that those who plan for contingencies are well equipped to thrive, even in times of crisis. When you plan, you’ll know what to do, bounce back fast, your organization is able to recover while others are trying to figure out what to do. Your community recovers faster!
Now, I want to ask you:
Are you ready to take total control of your preparedness and recovery efforts? Let’s talk about it, schedule your call HERE!

A step by step method to create a comprehensive contingency plan for your business:
- Ten easy to follow steps. Each step provides specific questions to guide you thru a well thought out process of developing a plan specific to fit the needs of your business.
- Non technical language. The book/ workbook was written in a plain language, easy to understand. No academic or technical jargon. This book was written with one purpose, to help you draft your plan.
In the Book, You Will Discover:
Threats to your business.
The first step is always to assess the risks. During this phase you will discover the real threats to your business, those that cold cause you to close permanently. You will also find solutions to minimize those threats.
How to improve business processes and operations.
One of the "hidden" benefits of planning for business interruptions caused by natural or human-made events is that you discover areas needing improvement in your business. You also find ways to optimize business operations.
How planning ahead will save you money and frustrations.
By planning ahead you will have total control, improvisation and quick fixes are not part of the plan. As such, you save money, time, headaches and frustrations now, and after an event.
How to make more sales and profits after an event, while everyone else is down.
Another "hidden" benefit of planning for contingencies is that you will take over sales and customers. While your competitors are down, you are raking the profits of being prepared and able to recover quickly.
Before the Deliberate Plan©, we basically had no contingency plan. If you are a business owner and not entirely sure of what you need to think about for a contingency plan, this method can help you figure that out and give you ideas for scenarios you may not have thought about".
What I really like about the book is… it’s not a book that you read from cover to cover, it’s a workbook. And it’s step by step on how to get your plan. By the time you go through this book, and if you fill out the areas correctly, you’re gonna have a solid continuity business plan for you. So, I highly recommend it!"
