Public Sector Orgs: A BCM Professional’s Biggest Foe?

Join me October 28, 2021 at 9am EST!

There are allot of differences between the Public and Private sectors, and the differences between Emergency Management and Business Continuity is but one of them. Not understanding the differences between the two and how their focus is different between the two disciplines is key for all Business Continuity Management (BCM) Professionals. I speak with Emergency Management and BCM expert, Julian Richardson about where the roles, responsibilities, and divisions lie between these two areas. Juliana will also help us understand how both can actually work together – to dovetail – their respective activities to benefit people, organizations, and communities during times of disaster. Juliana will also share some good COVID-related stories from her time working at the Moorfields Eye Hospital. These success stories could be used a model to help other organizations during COVID.

It’s a great chat with Juliana – don’t miss it. Listen to this conversation podcasts.

Using Project Management in Disaster Management

Join me April 15/21, at 9am EST!

Project Management is a skill set that is used in many situations, even when we don’t think it’s needed. Dr. Desiree Beekharry talk to us about how Project Management is used during times of Natural Disasters and how it’s various aspects are used to help with Disaster Management practices overall. We’ll discuss the similarities and differences between traditional Project Management approaches and Natural Disaster Management concepts, while identifying the challenges and complexities with both. Dr. Beekharry will also provide insight on how Disaster Management and Project Management professionals need to be Agile in their approach to responding to disasters and outlines some of the challenges that can be encountered.

Having promoted the benefits of Project Management skills for years in our Disaster/Business Continuity industry, I found Dr. Beekharry’s talk to be very educational.

Earthquakes and Earthquake Prediction

Earthquakes are powerful natural forces that have the ability to cause allot of devastation and early prediction is something still to be defined. Yet, it’s happening. We speak with Dr. Dimitar Ouzounov, an expert in pre-earthquake phenomena, Earth’s lithosphere-atmosphere coupling, and short term earthquake forecasting using space technologies. Dr. Ouzounov talks to us about a current AMADEUS initiative that is helping to determine earthquake probabilities and their potential impacts; something that will take years to accomplish but potentially save the lives of millions of people. Dr. Ouzounov will also discuss some of the challenges with these new technologies and what the future holds for Earthquake predictions.
