Synopsis:

Pay me now or pay me twice later! Hurricane season is here and hopefully Harvey does not have a rain check. Many times Business Continuity Management, Risk Management, Disaster Recovery and Emergency Management remain in a silo in their cubicles, with no time to network and use their synergy to prepare for the next hurricane whose destruction could hand-out pink slips. In this presentation learn what the groups have in common and how their expertise can build a contingency plan for maximum resilience in this Hurricane season

A 19 year facilities veteran of a Fortune 200 company, his interests in disaster preparedness and recovery generated from being one of the first on the ground after Katrina performing facility assessments and to determine if preparatory measures salvaged structures in the hurricane’s destructive path. His enhanced preparations for Hurricanes Gustav and Ike saved numerous structures which opened within 2 hours of regaining power.

He is also a Subject Matter Expert on Emergency Preparedness and Business Continuity with the International Facility Management Association which awarded him their Distinguished Author of the Year award.
