20th Annual Continuity Insights Management Conference

Omni Louisville Hotel April 25, 2022 - April 27, 2022

MONDAY, April 25, 2022

8:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m.              PLENARY SESSION
P1: Workforce Resilience in the Wake of the Great Resignation
Dr. Steven Goldman, MIT
(Panelists to be announced)
The Great Resignation is a crisis of epic proportions. Unlike a fire, flood, cyber attack, etc., the Great Resignation is a chronic and fatiguing crisis with no clearly defined end-state. What is now and will be the role of the Resilience Professional in navigating through this crisis? At the other end, has the role of the Resilience Professional changed? Is there even another end, a future end-state or is this the new normal? Are there skills, capabilities, approaches that are necessary to transition through this crisis that we had not foreseen? The panel will discuss all of these issues from a variety of differing business perspectives. Audience participation will be a key element of this session.

As you transition your focus from building a plan to building a program, forward thinking is an imperative.

Sunday, April 24, 2022, 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. (one-day course)
NOTE: Space is limited. Reserve your spot early.

This one-day intensive workshop  provides the Business Resiliency Program (BRP) Manager with the background, tools, and insight to prepare the organization’s executives to lead through a crisis. This session draws from research, and more important, includes many case studies of previous crisis response leadership – successful and not-so-successful – with the lessons learned, including from new research on how top global companies responded to Covid-19. This unique workshop also offers the Business Resiliency Program Manager the tools and experience to lead the BRP Program prior to the event, and how to lead senior executives through the event.

Ample discussion with sharing of information and experience is part of this workshop. Attendees will be able to provide their executives/leaders with much needed information and skills to make them successful crisis leaders. The session concludes with a tabletop exercise where the learning experience can be applied and adapted to your organization.

Presented by: Eric McNulty, National Preparedness Leadership Initiative, Harvard University and Dr. Steven Goldman, Director of Crisis Courses, MIT
