This week’s featured webinar notes are from a February 6th webinar hosted by Preparis. The event is available on demand on their website. The event was fascinating, in no small part because of the qualifications of the speakers and the organizations they represent.
I love the days when I work at home. It is peaceful and I get a lot more done – both personally and professionally. Of course that is when all the technology is working correctly. We recently had a blizzard and lost power for 3 days. Then it was cold and we did not have any computers or television. Needless to say, I was not productive at all!
Those who are optimists see the glass half full and those who aren't see it as half empty. There is also a saying : Plan for the worst and hope for the best.
A few years ago I had the opportunity to participate in development of a business continuity plan. My first instinct was that this was going to be a waste of time. Nothing is ever going to happen so why talk about it. As we went through it, there were so many considerations. The first of which was to know the locations of all the associates and did we have emergency contact information easily accessible for their families. We failed miserably on that simple one never mind any of the more complicated ones.
