IBAP speaker to explain crisis management
PHUKET: The speaker at tonight's meeting (August 10) of the International Business Association of Phuket (IBAP) will be Singapore-based crisis management specialist Richard Hancock.
Friday 10 August 2012, 02:28PM
Mr Hancock will discuss the parameters of this subject in relation to Phuket and take questions, focusing on answering the questions he is most often asked, which include, “How do we reduce our risk exposure?”
“Who should manage/oversee the crisis management programme?” “Who is going to develop/write the plans?” “Who should be in on the crisis management team?” “How do we keep people informed?” “How do we communicate our decisions in a crisis or emergency?” and, naturally, “How much is it going to cost to develop the appropriate crisis mitigation infrastructure?
He will also be looking at questions organisations should be asking themselves: “Do we understand and fully appreciate the range of threats to our organization/department?” “Have we looked at how vulnerable we are to any identified threats? Specifically, what event (natural disaster), omission (lack of compliance) or act (terrorism, crime) would bring our organization or department to its knees?”
“Have we identified all our critical assets – property, people, information and reputation?” “How do we deal with risk?” “Do we have a crisis management team identified?” “Do we have emergency response, crisis management and business resumption plans?” “Do we have a crisis communication plan?” “Do we test our plans?” “Do we review and revise our plans annually?”
The session will begin at 6:15pm and finish around 9:30 at the A2 Access Resort & Villas on the bypass road. Tickets, on the door, are B200 for members and B400 for non-members.
