“When I first started going, I was hungry for information. I needed to get my feet wet and learn the industry,” he remembers. “DRJ helped me get up to speed. I also connected with seasoned pros who have served as my mentors over the years.”
Ron notes that DRJ conferences have a welcoming atmosphere for all experience levels. They’re like a professional home for the BC/DR industry. “I really like DRJ because it’s egalitarian. It’s just a great place to be. Their conferences are for anyone interested in business continuity and risk management. You don’t have to be a certified professional to attend.”
Ron has put his storytelling and presentation skills to work at nearly a third of the DRJ conferences he attends. He sees his mission as “paying it backwards.” He explains: “Because I drew upon the DRJ experience when I was younger, my job now is to give back to those who are new today. I’m returning the favor.”
