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.
