DRJ Spring World 50th Conference

Join us at the 50th Disaster Recovery Journal conference in Orlando, Florida. Where we will be conducting Workshop Session 5 - Incident Management Planning and Social Media

Our Incident Management Planning course has been updated to include Social Media.  In this highly interactive workshop you will learn how social media can dramatically impact on your incident management plan.  We will also introduce to you the Incident Command System and PPBI’s Incident Management Plan Maturity Model

One of those best practices of a good Incident Command Plan is the handling of communications including social media outlets. If you have not embraced these phenomena, or need some help in building your response plans that include social media, PPBI will share the good, the bad and the ugly of managing this new media. Attendees will go away with an appreciation for recognition of the problem, a considered response, and what effect social media can have on the effectiveness of your plans.

We look forward to seeing you at our booth and workshop.

PPBI Hosts DRJ Mock Disaster PDF Print E-mail

PPBI was selected to host the DRJ Mock Disaster in Fall World 2012 conference in San Diego.

Limited to 200 participants, this exercise will prove really different.  We will be examining the use (and mis-use) of social media during a disaster.  Focusing on Twitter and Facebook, we will look at some of the pitfalls of using these media as internal communications channels, presenting the participants with a challenging scenario specifically designed to encourage thinking about social media as it applies to the office environment.

The scenario will bring a challenge to the participants.  They will be thrown into the use of ICS to manage the crisis.  Part instructional, part practice, part challenging, and all of it guaranteed to be fun.  Most importantly of all, the event will let participants learn from their peers.  Even the new practitioners will find the thought-provoking enviroment exciting.

This will be one session where you can use cell-phones, notebooks, tweeting, facebook--just like in real life.

PPBI Widget Corporation is starting their annual management retreat, motiviational event, and corporate planning session.  It kicks off at 1:30 p.m. on Sunday, Sep 9th.  The surprises start even before the participants enter the meeting hall.  There are only two hundred seats available.  The CEO promises the event will have some real excitement for everyone.

Once you've signed up, we'll be sending out special instructions for following and friending so you are a full participant of the exercise.
