The first 24 hours are the most critical after an emergency has occurred.

Michael Herrera will explain DRJ Fall 2018 attendees what they can do to make an impact in those first hours. He will use interaction and audience input during his presentation. He says attendees should be prepared to be called on, ready to answer questions, and prepared to offer examples.

“The two-minute drill allows you to focus your activities to maximize your time and resources, and it must be based firmly in your strategies and requirements,” Herrera explains. “You’ve gathered a lot of information in your planning, but all that data is not really power if it’s not organized to meet your needs on the field.”

According to Herrera, this DRJ Fall 2018 session will tackle the who, what, when, where, why, and how to execute a company’s playbook in the first 24 hours. He will be presenting an in-depth session to teach attendees how to apply methodology to an incident.

“We’ll go beyond talking about it to giving participants an opportunity to create their own two-minute drill,” says Herrera. Participants are encouraged to bring their existing plans to use to create a two-minute drill of their own under Herrera’s guidance.

Herrera is a well-known and sought-after speaker on business continuity issues. He is recognized for establishing a collaborative environment for his presentations, combined with a straightforward approach to the issues.

The presentation will show attendees how to relate something commonplace (the two-minute drill) to what they do in their jobs. “It will show them how to get through the voluminous plans and procedures they’ve created to a short, easy-to-follow guide that will help their organizations respond appropriately in the heat of the moment.
