Welcome

Welcome back to the 12th BCI Australasia Summit 2018

Date: 30th - 31st July 2018

The 2 - day premier event in the Asia Pacific region for Business Continuity and Resilience. Previously attracting over 170 attendees each year, the 2018 programme has been designed for BC Professionals of all levels to explore regional solutions to global problems across both days. Split into two streams, the diverse programme offers delegates full flexibility when planning their itinerary to achieve exactly what they want from the summit. 

Streams Overview

Two clear streams will run through the summit; both will include sessions aimed at all levels of Business Continuity and Resilience professionals from beginner to advanced, contain case studies of successes (or failures) as well as presentations focussed on emerging issues and future trends. The streams will have a focus on collaboration with other disciplines, which is the theme for this year’s Business Continuity Awareness Week.

1. Actions and Aspirations

This stream is focused on practical advice and key technical aspects of business continuity and resilience.  This stream reflects on the ‘how to’ and will help develop skills and methodologies that may be implemented immediately.  This stream will be interspersed with elements of aspirations within the actions stream providing space for thought leadership and consider what influences of the 'how to' today and what opportunities are there to meet the future challenges to ensure continued resilience.

2.  Approaches and Aspirations

This stream is focused on shared experiences, case studies and reviewing current practices with an eye on improvement and consolidation.  This may be based on personal experiences or events, considering the challenges facing the modern business continuity resilience professional.  This stream will be interspersed with elements of aspirations within the approaches stream providing space for thought leadership and consider what influences of the 'current practices' and what opportunities are there to  consider where resilience is heading.
