The ISSA Barbados Chapter held a Business Continuity Supply Chain Management workshop at the Courtyard Marriott on 11th February 2015.
The workshop attendees were treated to a very informative panel discussion on Business Continuity Planning by panelists Mr. Hayden Downes an insurance executive, Mr. Bob Turnbull a business continuity consultant and Mr. David Gittens a financial security consultant.
Mr. Colin Ive of CoDRIM in the UK was the featured presenter on Business Continuity Supply Chain Management. Colin’s presentation was very informative, interspersed with humor, a number of case studies and practical exercises for participants which helped to cement the concepts being taught.
The twenty participants who enjoyed the workshop were drawn from various companies and industry sectors including petroleum, manufacturing, energy, banking, government, and retail and distribution. The participants’ professional roles were diverse and included audit, finance, information communication technology, information security and distribution.
