Braud’s keynote session will explore why speed is critical in both event response and 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. Braud will unlock his vault of secrets to help you be better prepared to today’s communications realities.
Attendees will have the opportunity to network with other practitioners during attendee breakfasts, lunches, breaks between sessions, and a second reception in the exhibit hall on Monday evening. More than 50 business continuity service providers and consultants will be demonstrating products and answering questions in a relaxed setting during exhibit hours.
The main conference program will conclude at 3:15 p.m. on Wednesday, April 25.
Post-conference certification and workshops will be conducted on Thursday and Friday, April 26-27. Both pre- and post-conference programs are available to all attendees for an additional fee outside the conference registration.
