Sunday Workshop Session 1: Practical Event Management

Presented by Scott Lawrence

In an exercise or an actual recovery event, it is critical to be able to manage the event in a way that geographically separated teams can view the progress of the recovery and update tasks and report status. McKesson has partnered with WinWire to create a SharePoint environment that is flexible, real-time, easily facilitates check-in check-out of resources, executive and drill down-dashboarding, running exercises and actual events with all the Power of SharePoint as a solution platform.

Pre-Conference Course-5: From Response to Recovery: Everything You Need to Know to Design a Successful Exercise

Presenter: Regina Phelps

Learn from an exercise master who conducts more than 100 exercises a year. If you have a documented emergency plan but have not tested it, you might discover your document is less than sufficient. There are really only two ways to find out. One is to have an actual disaster; the other is to do an exercise. The latter is usually a better learning experience and is certainly a lot less stressful. This workshop details everything you need to do to design a successful exercise from the ground up. You will walk out of this workshop with a draft of your next exercise planned and a copy of Phelp's new book.
