Continuity Insights has announced the full conference program, including speakers, sessions, plenaries, and panel discussions for the 2018 Continuity Insights Management Conference, taking place April 23-25, at the Hilton Miami Downtown, Miami, Florida.
The preliminary schedule kicks off on Sunday, April 22 with a selection of pre-conference workshops and certification classes, providing in-depth learning related to key business continuity and resilience topics. The pre-conference workshops will be followed by the “Get Certified!” opening night reception hosted by the Business Continuity Institute (BCI).
The main conference will commence on Monday, April 23 with the opening keynote, Don’t Talk to the Media Until… Being an Effective Spokesperson in Today’s Digital Age, to be presented by international crisis communications expert, coach, trainer, and author, Gerard Braud.
Braud will explore why speed is critical in both your event response and your communications response. In this digital age, the story about your response can easily get hijacked by others, hastening the need for your organization to issue a statement to all audiences, including the media.
The expanded 2018 conference program will include nearly 70 sessions devoted to Case Studies, Trending Topics, Program Development & Advancement, Measurement, Metrics, and Maturity, Emerging Technology, and Professional Development, as well as the highly-anticipated “Ask the Experts” panels. Continuing education credits and certifications are available to all conference attendees.
“Based on the overwhelming response from our faculty, this is the most robust conference program we’ve ever put together,” said Robert Nakao, Executive Publisher of Continuity Insights. “Our goal is to provide education, networking, and the exchange of ideas and information to all business continuity professionals, regardless of the sophistication of their technology, industry, or company size.”
The main conference program concludes on Wednesday, April 25. Post-conference certification and workshops will be conducted on Thursday and Friday, April 27-28.
