Business Continuity and Risk Management must work closely together, like two people in a well-orchestrated dance; a ‘paso doble’.

3. The importance of the Business Impact Analysis and the Risk Assessment

4. Understanding the business

5. The resilience that can be created between the two

6. A holistic and harmonized approach to BC and Risk Mgmt.

7. Tips for practitioners to foster an ‘…environment… based on shared risk…culture, values, trust and collaboration’…and much more!

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.

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!

Articulating the Value of Business Continuity w/ Lisa Jones and Milena Maneva

Join Alex Fullick on January 6, 2022!

“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.
