Do you sometimes wish you could exercise your plans more often but don’t have the time, buy-in, or the budget to exercise them as often as you’d like?

Are you looking for easy and effective ways to demonstrate the need for and value of business continuity management (to managers)?

Do those in your incident teams forget what they have learned year to year, so the annual exercise is spent relearning the same skills they learned last year, rather than building on and learning new skills?

Would you like to practice responding to unlikely but plausible scenarios, so you can handle something different rather than the usual same old scenarios?

Do you feel you lack the skills, methodologies, and confidence to run your own exercises and have to rely on external help whenever you want to validate your plans?

Are you an experienced practitioner who wants to learn something different to add to your portfolio of skills?

If you answer yes to any of the above, or just want a fun afternoon and to learn something different, come to the BCI Netherlands Chapter event kindly hosted by IJsseland Ziekenhuis.

During the chapter event participants will participate in three different types of short exercises. Each exercise will take less than an hour to run. In addition to participating in the exercises, those attending the forum will be shown how they can run exercises themselves, so they can take the learning back to their organizations. The exercises are simple to run but can be powerful learning tools. They can be used by organizations to improve awareness, examine their emergency response procedures, review how they would respond to a variety of scenarios, and practice working as a team to respond to an unfolding incident.

The day is being planned by Charlie Maclean-Bristol, who has been in the business continuity industry for over 25 years. With the support of two Chapter Members, they will share their experiences and methodologies for running short exercises.
