  • Leadership agility: why it matters and how it changes our perspective Leadership agility: why it matters and how it changes our perspective Ken Gonzalez and Larry Cooper Recorded: Jul 6 2016 62 mins

    So with all the talk about leadership agility and how leadership is now more valued than management, how are we to make sense of it all?

    In this lively talk Ken and Larry will explore the differences between leadership and management, why leadership now matters more, the real role of leadership, the challenges to achieving it, and what leadership agility looks like.

  • Resiliency Response & Comms: Your first-line of defense against a disruption Resiliency Response & Comms: Your first-line of defense against a disruption Margaret Mills (IBM) Recorded: May 20 2016 64 mins
    Most businesses have near zero tolerance for service outages and disruptions, regardless of the cause. How do Business Continuity professionals demonstrate a positive ROI for applications while meeting always-on expectations? In an operationally always-on world, business communications must be real-time with rapid response to outages to keep your business running. To achieve this level of Operational Resiliency, you must implement automated communications that eliminate breakdown during a crisis event or disruption. Join this webinar to learn about the latest technologies that you can use today to automate communications for real-time incident and crisis management, regardless of the channel. Are you ready to respond to your next disruption?
  • Effective crisis communication techniques to avoid a reputation train wreck Effective crisis communication techniques to avoid a reputation train wreck Caroline Sapriel (CS&A International) Recorded: May 20 2016 61 mins
    There are crises and then there are reputation train wrecks. In the former, your organisation is thrown into a period of chaos that may last days, weeks or months. Stakes and costs are high, but by quickly demonstrating ownership, integrity, genuine stakeholder concern and swift action, your chance of recovering and even enhancing your organisation’s reputation is strong. Think Johnson and Johnson’s Tylenol crisis.

    In the latter on the other hand, slow response, lack of responsibility, blame and insensitivity to stakeholders’ perceptions will quickly propel your organisation into a reputation train wreck that may damage and possibly destroy it forever. Think BP, Volkswagen and FIFA.

    Indeed bad management and communication can turn a crisis into a reputation train wreck and only principled-based organisations with effective crisis leadership and preparedness can weather the storm and even emerge from it stronger. In this webinar, you will:

    - Gain some fundamental best practice insight on how prepare for crises and prevent a reputation train wreck
    - Learn real-world response strategies to protect your credibility and retain stakeholder trust even in the most adverse circumstances
  • A 3-step agile approach to mobilize, engage and develop high-performing teams A 3-step agile approach to mobilize, engage and develop high-performing teams Charlotte Goudreault and Claude Emond Recorded: May 19 2016 51 mins
    Traditional project management approaches focus on measuring performance in terms of respecting time and cost estimates. Those measures confirm performance after the fact and do not address the main driver of project success: engaged high-performing teams.

    This webinar, co-hosted by Charlotte Goudreault and Claude Emond, will present the link between continuously engaged teams, superior performance and successful high value project delivery, as well as explain how agile values, principles and tools can help build and develop continuously engaged, high-performing project teams.

    Charlotte and Claude will also present and demonstrate, using real project data, a simple 3-step approach, based on agile techniques and inspired by their own experiences in projects, that will help you to quickly mobilize your teams (any types of teams, project-oriented or production-oriented) and keep them engaged and high-performing.

    Those who attend the webinar will be given access to a pdf copy of the presentation slides as well as to a copy of an Excel template that can be used as a support tool to monitor and improve team engagement.

  • Changing your BCMS from a cost of doing business to a business improvement tool Changing your BCMS from a cost of doing business to a business improvement tool John DiMaria (BSI) Recorded: May 19 2016 35 mins
    Due to the recent economic climate, never before have we witnessed the current level of pressure on businesses to protect customers, employees and the business, covering all sides of the organization to make it more resilient. In general, the motivational factor for preventing loss of business assets and ability to operate is financial, and requires that you improve your business not just protect it.

    Many companies struggle and over spend because they decide to throw money and resources at the problem and treat each area of the business as a silo. By taking this approach, the opportunity for an incident is very high and usually does happen. The opportunity for organizations is to recognize a single integrated approach that will address all areas.

    Your BCMS investment should not be a standalone document or simply a cost to your operations. Instead, a strong BCMS supports business operational value.

    You can show an immediate ROI when resiliency and reliability are weaved throughout the design of a system or process instead of adding a business continuity plan as solely a disaster element. In this webinar, John DiMaria AMBCI will discuss multipurpose solutions that increase both reliability and functionality that not only protect your business but improve it.
  • What is the return on investment of business continuity? What is the return on investment of business continuity? Patrick Alcantara DBCI & Andrew Scott CBCI (BCI) Recorded: May 19 2016 50 mins
    The theme for Business Continuity Awareness Week 2016 is return on investment, a theme design to highlight the value of business continuity. During the week, Business Continuity Institute will be publishing a new paper highlighting what some of those returns are. These are returns that go beyond the obvious benefit of BC when disaster occurs, but rather they are returns that do not require the activation of the BC plan. Join Patrick Alcantara DBCI and Andrew Scott CBCI as they present some of the findings from this research.
  • Creating efficiencies through a ‘top-down’ approach to business continuity Creating efficiencies through a ‘top-down’ approach to business continuity Neil Bourke & Lucy Jones (Deloitte) Recorded: May 19 2016 59 mins
    Efficiencies and reduced investment costs associated with business continuity are typically measured, and measurable, during and after an incident. However significant efficiencies in time, money and resource can be gained at the outset by adopting an approach that focuses on what is really critical, optimises existing capabilities and facilitates collaboration across different risk management disciplines. During this webinar, we will aim to show how a strategic, risk-based approach to Business Continuity can create efficiencies for the organisation both in terms of time and financial investment.
  • Improving the efficiency of resilience mitigation & response Improving the efficiency of resilience mitigation & response Tony Perry (IBM) Recorded: May 18 2016 60 mins
    There is a saying that "the cobbler's children are the last to get shoes". As BCM professionals we ensure that other business functions continue to have the tools to do their jobs whilst we go without. Yet failures in resilience cost organisations dearly – both in direct costs and as the result of reputational impact. But with increasingly complex and integrated systems, monitoring of risk mitigation and response can be costly. Incidents affecting business and IT operations are daily occurrences, often escalating into critical events, without proper management and communications. How can we improve efficiency and provision whilst staying within financial constraints? This webinar, explores these topics.

  • Risk and business continuity management – adding value or just ticking boxes? Risk and business continuity management – adding value or just ticking boxes? Junita van der Colff (ContinuitySA) Recorded: May 18 2016 46 mins
