Episode Description

"If you are a Business Continuity or Resilience professional and you wonder what your future role will look like, or if you struggle to articulate your value to senior management and the business overall, this...is for you." (From the Resilience Think Tank article "Articulating Value as a Business Continuity Professional", Jones & Maneva, September 2021). I talk with 2 of the founders of the Resilience Think Tank, Lisa Jones and Milena Maneva, about their published article with the BCI. We have a very informative discussion on how to communicate our value to organizations and where we can help organizations succeed in BCM, Crises, and in Resilience. Some of the topics we touch on include: a) Getting involved with, and how to approach, other organizational disciplines, b) Aligning our BCM program to our organizations, rather than just a standard or guiding principle, c) Tie our actions to risks raised by our organization(s), d) How to break down silos and create a network, and much more. It's a fun chat with Lisa and Milena you don't want to miss.

Preparing for the Unexpected

Thursday at 10 AM Pacific Time on VoiceAmerica Business Channel

Preparing for the Unexpected is about how people, organizations and communities plan, prepare, test, communicate and respond to sudden unplanned events such as natural and manmade disasters and crises. The show is for everyone who wants an understanding of how plans are created for individuals, organizations and communities and for anyone who wants to know what they can do in their own lives to help protect themselves from unexpected events.

There is a myth that disasters happen to others but in reality, they happen to everyone. It's just a matter of when and how well-prepared you are. The greater the level of awareness, communication and knowledge, the quicker one bounces back from adversity.

The overall aim of Preparing for the Unexpected is to reduce the suffering, effects and impacts caused as a result of disasters and unexpected life events by increasing knowledge and awareness of Business Contingency and Disaster Planning and related activities.
