What is the BCM Innovators Group all about?

(…and how is it different from all of the other BCM groups on LinkedIn?)

The BCM Innovators Group

Mission – BCM Innovators are focused on driving innovation through sharing creative ideas, debating, collaborating, and evolving to form real solutions to improve the effectiveness, efficiency, and economic value of our BCM programs.

Who We Are

Collaborative  – We are interested in gathering the best practitioners in the industry to collaborate and elevate our profession in the eyes of businesses and organizational leaders.
Respectful – We are trustworthy, fair, and responsible. It is important that this group respects and cares for others- we want to see everyone succeed!
Passionate – We are intense, curious, and excited about helping organizations become resilient, prepared, and risk-oriented.
Creative – Our focus on innovation and achieving higher levels of success increases our willingness to take on new approaches and ideas, and we do not settle for the status quo.

What Happens Here

Sharing – Discuss trending topics with thought leaders who understand the problems and the potential that various solutions might bring.
Debating – Post a hypothesis about the application of a technology in a certain situation and debate the merits and value amongst the group.
Innovating – Suggest “out of the box” ideas and get feedback that could help evolve and mature those ideas.
Learning – Most of all, we want all members to learn from their experience in a way that drives innovation in the form of methods and technologies.

What Doesn’t Happen Here

Selling
Complaining
Disparaging

This is the benchmark on which the conversations will be monitored and managed.  If you think that you are a good fit for this group, we would love to have you. Request to join HERE.

Trending #ISO22301 – A Webinar that Mattered

Last week, Fusion and Continuity Insights presented a very successful webinar with more than 230 people registered. David Nolan discussed his perspectives on standards in the past, what makes ISO 22301 different, and how you can gain the most business value possible. It is important to make decisions that are best for you and your company, and David explains how to make this standard work in your best interest, rather than simply jumping on the bandwagon or ignoring it. This unique perspective paired with insight into the business case for standards resulted in an effective and informative webinar.

We are very proud of how well received this session was among the attendees:

“I thought the information was spot on and well presented.”

“I agree that he is right on the mark regarding the ISO 22301 standard for BC/DR.”

“I very much enjoyed his presentation and presentation style; very clear and engaging.”

“Very well done.”

“Really enjoyed the discussion.”

“Good stuff!”

“Thank you for time well spent in my day.”

A big thank you to everyone who attended and shared their experience with us. Want to see what all the fuss is about? Read David’s blog post “22301 – The Tipping Point for BC Standards.” After you do that, contact lnolan@fusionrm.com for a copy of the presentation slides and/or recording of the session. Lots of valuable information for you!

David is also preparing for another presentation, this time in person at Continuity Insights Chicago. Register here for the event and don’t miss his session, “Making Social Media Work For Your BC Program” at 11:00 am on Tuesday, June 18th.

As always, make sure you are connected with Fusion on LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter. If you have something to say about this or similar topics, request to join our group, BCM Innovators.
