Organizations worldwide have been put to the test by a succession of critical events, from brutal weather and political turmoil to supply chain interruptions. Resilient organizations are able to thrive under all circumstances and become more competitive. Unfortunately, many companies are not equipped to do this.

There are five core disciplines at the heart of every resilient company. Michael will help attendees understand these disciplines, the need for them, and some ways to achieve them. He'll also share the latest research insights and practical day-to-day applications. There will be a question and answer time following the presentation.

Topics will include:
* Characteristics of effective crisis leaders
* Building an adaptable organizational culture
* The importance of a resilient workforce
* Creating stress-resistant supply chains
* Why community resilience matters

"Organizational resilience extends beyond business continuity and disaster recovery, and it’s on the boardroom agenda," said Malcolm Hafner, CEO of MissionMode Solutions. "The disciplines that Michael will discuss are of great importance to executives, senior managers, and business continuity practitioners. They are important components of any roadmap to resilience."
