Business Continuity Managers are at a crossroad in their careers -- aiming to retire relatively soon and to transfer knowledge to the next generation of BC professionals. Their experience and learnings will empower others to lead our industry into the future. But how can we position BC as an engaging career to the Millennial generation? How can we develop a pipeline of talent from those outside of the field? What attributes and characteristics of Millennials can BC draw upon, leading them toward a rewarding yet challenging profession? How can we best communicate and create an environment where we can teach and they can learn? Please bring your questions and join our panel for a review of ideas and opportunities.
