Phil Lambert | Ripcord

DRJ Fall 2019 | Sunday, September 29, 2019 | Sunday Workshop Session 2 | 1:00 p.m. – 3:30 p.m.

Phil Lambert plans to share stories, answer questions, and brainstorm to connect with his audience at DRJ Fall 2019. He also has multiple handouts to provide for attendees.

During his presentation “People, Not Paper: Resiliency Begins with Training,” Lambert will lecture, lead whole-group discussions, and provide hands-on learning for attendees at his session.

“I will facilitate with the collaboration and assistance from the people in the room,” he said.

According to Lambert, people are taught to build plans. “But it’s the participation in the process of developing plans that really prepares an organization to respond, restore, and recover well.”

“How do we get people to participate in the program?” is one of the questions Lambert intends to ask his audience.

In addition, he will share insider tips such as how to establish buy-in, ownership, and participation. He also said professionals should make it as easy as possible for people to participate in programs.

“People don’t use plans,” he said. “They respond intuitively.”

Lambert, MBCI, CBCP, is founder and program architect for Ripcord Solutions. He has been in his current position for 13 years and the business continuity and disaster recovery profession for the past 24 years.

He said a company opportunity motivated him to join the current profession. He knew after initial training this was the career field for him.

“The work we do is uniquely important even if others don’t embrace it,” he said. “It’s my job to provide the help they need to understand not only the value preservation but value creation we provide.”

Lambert has engaged with numerous companies of all sizes. “I know what works to engage senior leadership.”

He earned a bachelor of science degree when he turned 50. He’s now been married for 44 years to the same woman. They have six grandkids and one dog.
