A practical toolkit

What could you achieve as a Business Continuity professional if you had the interest and support of the key influencers in your organisation?

This toolkit guides you through the three steps that will enable you to confidently engage your senior executive - not just in formal situations, but also in serendipitous ones such as water cooler or elevator meetings.

Each step will help you more effectively target individual executives, in order to increase awareness and understanding of the importance of Business Continuity to your organisation; and to secure support and specific commitment for your Business Continuity activity.
