Being a corporate business leader can be tough. “Mishandled crises can devastate businesses, lives and livelihoods” (Hemus, 2020) I talk with internationally recognized crisis leadership expert and author, Jonathan Hemus, as we talk about what good leaders need to understand, know, and react, when disasters and crises strike.

It’s an informative discussion about a serious subject, and yet very open and accessible to people that might not be fully versed on crisis leadership. We might even have a comment or two about Aston Villa. Enjoy!

8. Policy and standards,

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!

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.

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.
