The folks at Continuity Insights want BC pros to be aware of emerging issues: almost every day, new issues emerge to test the plans and preparedness of business continuity professionals across the world.

As technology and cyber-security evolve, as natural disasters continue to effect more and more densely populated areas, and as crypto-currency poses new challenges, it’s up to BC pros to prepare for it all.

Fortunately, the 2018 Continuity Insights Management Conference will feature several presentations from companies representing various industries that will focus on these emerging issues. Our own People and Analytical Solutions EVP, Cheyene Marling will participate, and presenters will cover a wide range of topics important to BC pros. Learn more about the Agenda on the CI website

Additionally, the Business Continuity Institute (BCI), has announced that it will be sponsoring a “Get Certified!” welcome reception at the 2018 Continuity Insights Management Conference. The reception takes place on Sunday evening, April 22, 2018, from 5:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. All conference attendees are invited to attend whether they’re certified or not. Join business continuity colleagues and ease into three full days of education, inspiration, and information exchange.

About the conference:

Continuity Insights Management Conference comprises three days of comprehensive educational programming, numerous networking functions, a review of the latest technologies and practices, additional certification, pre- and post-conference workshops, and much more, offering unmatched opportunities to learn from and network with those responsible for the integrity, availability, resilience, and security of their organizations.

The Continuity Insights Management Conference provides essential tools business continuity professionals need to turn their operation into a front-line resilient environment. It features the deepest, most advanced-level educational program available at any industry event for experienced business continuity professionals.

Be a Top Talent

A long list of certification acronyms after your last name and years of business continuity/ resiliency expertise does not translate into being a Top Talent.  A Top Talent professional possesses the sought after soft skills and cognitive ability that can elevate the program, the team and the organization.

The hard skills required to be successful in a role may vary on the level and between different organizations, but the soft skills are universal and do impact your career trajectory.  Let’s discuss soft skills to better position your career growth at any stage.
