  • How to create plausible scenarios and leverage them to generate clarity and confidence for your senior leadership team

C7: Delivering A Crisis Management Exercise That Challenges the C-Suite!


Senad Cehajic, OMERS and Marie-Helene Primeau, Premier Continuum
Executives at the C-Suite level that comprise the crisis management team have limited time and attention to give to an almost unlimited number of issues. As a result, it is vital to optimize the time that you have with the C-Suite to ensure they are ready to respond to a crisis effectively. You will achieve this by delivering an exercise that truly challenges their crisis management reflexes. C-Suite level executives are high achievers who thrive in high pressure environments. Conversely, they can become bored and detached when not adequately engaged. This session will provide the roadmap to deliver an exercise that has the C-Suite feeling more confident in their capabilities and excited about participating in the next exercise. Aspects including selection of the right scenario for the exercise and designing injects that are unexpected but realistic will be explained. Important elements such as effective use of multimedia and pacing of an exercise will also be described. Finally, this session will illustrate the exercise moderation skills needed to conduct a challenging exercise.

E3: Rapid Continuity and the Extraordinary Practitioner
Phil Lambert, Lambert Learning Institute
Conventional standards and legacy strategies may have worked well before 2020, but now these legacy mindsets demand to be reexamined, updated, and fine-tuned if your organization is going to grapple with the disruptive challenges of 2022. More importantly, the successful business continuity professional in 2022 must adopt a certain mindset that focuses on providing an outcome that leadership wants. An outcome that people understand, embrace, and will commit to. We will learn how to clearly define your program.
