Mike Glavin, founder of City Floor Supply (formerly Philadelphia Floor Store), will host the 9 Steps that will Save Your Business Should Disaster Strike seminar on Thursday, April 28 from 9:15 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. at the National Wood Flooring Association’s (NWFA) Wood Flooring Expo in Charlotte, N.C.

Glavin knows first-hand what it takes to withstand a disastrous business event. He is currently in the process of rebuilding after a fire in May of 2015 leveled his company’s headquarters and distribution center. While thankfully no one was injured, the company suffered immeasurable losses in terms of assets and inventory. Glavin credits his disaster recovery plan as the single most important reason he was able to get his business back up and running within days.

Glavin will offer an inside look at the City Floor Supply recovery process and offer advice for other business owners on how they can protect themselves from potential disaster.

“It’s not just huge catastrophic events that can wreak havoc on your business," said Glavin. "The loss of precious company equipment, a data threat or computer virus, or even damage to company property stored at your home office or garage can have a huge impact on the future of your business.”

Seminar attendees will also receive an advance hard copy of City Floor Supply’s soon to be released e-Guide—11 Ways to Market Your Hardwood Floor Business on the Internet , a checklist designed to help formulate a disaster recovery plan and a gift that attendees can use to implement a disaster plan immediately following the convention.
