Topic: "Lights! Calamity! Action! Excitement to your Business Continuity Exercises"

Are your businesses motivated and excited about participating in business continuity (BC) exercises, or do they moan and groan of having to do the same old things year after year?

Running a BC exercise is more than just testing a plan or validating a sequence of procedures. It is also about providing the participants with an experience that maximises learning, enhances team effectiveness and encourages greater participation in the BC program. It is therefore important that organisations design realistic and engaging exercise scenarios to achieve the desired outcomes.

This presentation will use examples from different organisations to show how they performed various types of BCM exercises, and illustrate different techniques that can be applied to make BC exercises more exciting and engaging.
