Continuity Central webinar: Putting ‘management’ into BCM

Date: 13 Nov 2012
Subject: Putting ‘management’ into BCM

The issue of gaining top level buy-in and support for business continuity is often raised as one of the major difficulties that business continuity managers experience. In Continuity Central’s latest free webinar Ken Simpson, MBA, MBCI, CORP, will look at the reasons for this and will present ideas for changing the situation in your organization, drawing on his experience of being both a C-Level executive and a business continuity manager at different stages of his career.

Areas of focus will be suggested where you can implement changes in your approach and better identify the needs that executives in your organization have of the BCM program.

The webinar will present and discuss ideas first explored by the speaker in a recent paper published in Continuity Central’s Business Continuity and Resiliency Journal.

Time: Ken will be presenting from Canberra, Australia at 10pm local time. This is 6am EST in New York city and 11am in London, UK.
