In this session from BCI World Hybrid 2022, Ratna Pawan MBCI discussed how in the last two years risk professionals have sub-consciously adopted the motto "Semper Fi", even though working tirelessly to ensure the continuity of operations.

In the new ongoing VUCA world, embracing the qualities that exemplify ‘Semper Fi’ will serve us well, but it needs to be adopted in a more conscious way for skill enhancement, purpose, conduct, preparedness, and overall resilience journey.

Semper Fi also represents tradition, responsibility, and enthusiasm. To be the best in the profession is just not a matter of wishing to be one!
