Experts share real life experiences, best practices across industries and disciplines.

Why have a disaster if you can avoid it??

Many organisations spend a significant amount of money and effort on recovery capabilities and the associated plans, but neglect to address the issues that would make the operation more resilient and less in need of recovery in the first place. Could that money be better spent on disaster avoidance in the first place? To a degree the answer is going to be dependent upon the state of the organisation, its ability to change and the willingness, of those in charge, to accept risk.


S
haron Chan, Senior Vice President of RHB Investment Bank, Kuala Lumpur had this to say of last year’s event –“ If there is only one BCM event you attend in a year, it has to be the World Continuity Congress!”

Last year’s event saw almost 200 participants descending on Singapore from countries such as Australia, Bahrain, United States, China, Denmark, Dubai, Hong Kong, India, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Thailand, Moscow, Saudi Arabia and Singapore. This year’s event we are pleased to invite Mr. Bhakorn Vanuptikul, Executive Vice President, Bangkok Bank, and Dr Goh Moh Heng, President, BCM Institute as our keynote speaker for our Day 1 conference.

You can have a chance to meet the experts in our workshops conducted by experienced industry practitioners on specially crafted topics. There will be an exclusive BC DR Plan strategic review by our professional panelists of consultants (by appointment only).

T
he media also took to the event last year. The coverage we received included 5 radio broadcasts, 4 print articles and 6 online articles from global media. At its peak, the event website obtained almost 250,000 page views in the month of April 2007. Punctuating the event will be a BCM Masterclass lead by practitioners who will deliver the material whilst sharing real life experiences with attendees. Join us to create a new frontier in the changing landscape of Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery. Planning and exercising minimises the impact of potential disruption. It also aids in the prompt resumption of service helping to protect market share, reputation and brand. Learn to be a successful practitioner, and gain insights on how to integrate BCM as a part of an organisation's normal ongoing management processes.
