The Disaster Experience – a Crisis Management Simulation


Bob Mellinger

Friday, 16 November | 1:00 p.m. - 3:30 p.m.

Chances are that while you read this, an unexpected disaster is causing an organisation stress and confusion and is affecting their long-term ability to provide products and services to its customers. Is the organisation prepared to handle it? Will it be able to recover? Disasters of every shape, size, look and feel happen all the time, affecting businesses, people's jobs, lives and families, and ultimately, the economy. How would you handled unexpected disruption?

Business Continuity Planning has never been more critical to the long-term success and survivability of organisations than today, regardless of their size, location, industry, or revenue. However, creating and maintaining a Business Continuity Plan (BCP) still remains low on the priority of organisations' leadership: limited resources requires organisations to focus more intently on their core business, not Business Continuity Planning.

Never be caught unprepared again!

Learning Objectives:

  • Experience first-hand the problems that can result from a poorly developed, poorly executed or non-existent plan
  • Have an opportunity to share personal experiences with colleagues regarding business continuity challenges
  • Discuss lessons learned from both previously experienced disasters and future disasters that could affect their organisation.
