Join Host of Preparing for the Unexpected, Alex Fullick as he broadcast live from DRJ 2018 in Phoenix Arizona. Disaster Recovery Journal sponsors two annual conferences that began in September of 1989. The first conference drew a crowd of almost 250 disaster recovery professionals. Today, both conferences combined pull in more than 3,000 disaster recovery professionals from all over the world, which makes our conferences the largest in the entire industry. DRJ has an exciting array of events available throughout the year. Participation in any or all is a great way to boost your industry knowledge and expand your networking circle. The opportunities include annual conferences, webinars and podcasts. The conferences are held twice each year. The spring show is in Orlando, Florida; the fall show is in Phoenix, Arizona. The webinars are held monthly and may be viewed live or recorded for later use. The podcasts offer a chance to hear sessions from previous conferences.
Preparing for the Unexpected
Thursday at 6 AM Pacific Time on VoiceAmerica Variety Channel
Preparing for the Unexpected is about how people, organizations and communities plan, prepare, test, communicate and respond to sudden unplanned events such as natural and manmade disasters and crises. The show is for everyone who wants an understanding of how plans are created for individuals, organizations and communities and for anyone who wants to know what they can do in their own lives to help protect themselves from unexpected events.
There is a myth that disasters happen to others but in reality, they happen to everyone. It's just a matter of when and how well-prepared you are. The greater the level of awareness, communication and knowledge, the quicker one bounces back from adversity.
The overall aim of Preparing for the Unexpected is to reduce the suffering, effects and impacts caused as a result of disasters and unexpected life events by increasing knowledge and awareness of Business Contingency and Disaster Planning and related activities.
