Here Comes Climate Change for Business Continuity Professionals

Join me May 12, 2022 at 1PM EST!

Climate Change is one of – if not the most – important issue facing individuals, communities, organizations, and the world today. It’s become a key component that many Business Continuity (BC) professionals must address; from the Risk Analysis (RA) to the Business Impact Analysis (BIA), to preparedness and response plans.

I talk with noted industry expert Margaret Millett about what BC professionals can do to address Climate Change concerns in their organizations.

We talk about:

1. Historical Information (cities, species…),

2. Risks and Impacts,

3. The challenge facing the BC profession and professional,

4. Considerations for organizations,

5. What opportunities exist for the BC industry/professional?,

6. Getting ahead of the Climate Change risk,

7. The Risk Analysis (RA) and Business Impact Analysis (BIA),

8. Policy and standards,

9. Company response (Mitigation, Preparedness, Response, Recovery),

10. Metrics,

11. Sharing information with Leadership and the Board of Directors…and more.

It’s an insightful discussion on how we as professionals, can address the challenges Climate Change posses us and our organizations. Enjoy!

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.

Continued Innovation During the COVID-19 Pandemic: Experian DataLabs

To receive the weekly blogs via email, please sign-up here.

This blog is provided by Eric Haller, Executive Vice President of Experian DataLabs. Eric shares the programs and resources Experian is innovating to make a difference in the fight against the pandemic.  It is a companion to his interview on Innovating Leadership, Co-creating Our Future titled Disruption and Innovation in the Credit Industry that aired on July 7th, 2020.

 

At Experian, we’re dedicated to innovation and the COVID-19 pandemic has been an impetus for further innovation. Our driving force of successful innovation is our employees. We foster a culture of continuous innovation, from the way we work to the solutions we create.

Global Hackathon 

As part of our effort to mitigate the impact of the pandemic, we’re launching Experian’s first-ever Global Hackathon. Taking place between June 1 and 5, we’ve invited all our employees to get involved and connect, share knowledge and find new ways to help our clients and consumers on the road to recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.

Mitigating COVID-19 Crisis Through Our Innovations 

In addition to the Global Hackathon, we’ve committed vast resources to develop innovative technologies and new sources of data and analytics to drive solutions that help people, businesses and society at large.

For example, to aid in the United States re-opening efforts, Experian has made available a free interactive U.S. map showing populations at-risk of being most susceptible to developing severe cases of COVID-19. The Experian COVID-19 Outlook and Response Evaluator (CORE) tool is intended to help guide healthcare organizations and government agencies as they plan for COVID-19 recovery in the months ahead. The map leverages de-identified data such as pre-existing conditions and social determinants of health to form a comprehensive picture that predicts possible pandemic impact on communities.

To help essential organizations during the pandemic, Experian also created At-Risk Audiences, which leverage our data assets to identify groups of individuals that are most likely to be impacted. These new privacy-compliant segments, offered free of charge, are designed to help these organizations find and communicate with at-risk populations, enabling them to deliver essential services as quickly as possible.

In the UK, we’re working side–by–side with the government. As part of this, we’re building models to help predict how this disease will spread in local populations and predict the effectiveness of various treatment therapies.

In Brazil, we’ve organized a coalition of universities, data companies and technology leaders to launch Covid Radar with the purpose of working together to minimize the impacts generated by the COVID-19 pandemic and contribute to the recovery of Brazil’s economy. The Covid Radar integrates companies to the hospitals and communities that need donations of ventilators, personal protection equipment, or other supplies.  In addition to providing case monitoring and disease forecasting.

The COVID-19 crisis has forced innovation and change on a scale and pace we wouldn’t normally see. We remain relentlessly focused on helping vulnerable communities, strengthening the resilience of businesses, and playing an important role in helping consumers and the world economy get back to strength. As part of our global innovation program, we’re hosting a global hackathon to help our employees create new ways to help our clients and consumers on the road to recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.

As one of the world’s most innovative companies, we’re doing everything at Experian we can to provide our unique insights back to key stakeholders so they can prioritize help those who need it most urgently.

 

To become a more innovative leader, you can begin by taking our free leadership assessments and then enrolling in our online leadership development program.

Check out the companion interview and past episodes of Innovating Leadership, Co-creating Our Future, via iTunes, Google Play, TuneIn, Stitcher, Spotify and iHeartRADIO. Stay up-to-date on new shows airing by following the Innovative Leadership Institute LinkedIn.
