We would also like to invite any of our colleagues who have been involved in managing a crisis due to power failure, gas failure, water issues, fire etc to let us know if they would be prepared to speak for 5 to 10 minutes on their experience in managing business continuity during a crisis.  This need not be a formal presentation, just a story and brief discussion.  If you are interested in speaking at the session, please contact me at meabhsmith@gmail.com

Kind regards
