In one of the polls, half of the risk managers in attendance admitted that even when they have BCP in place, the disruption caused by the pandemic was beyond its scope. This session revisited the principles on what makes a business resilient, citing the case example of Qantas Airways and helped the participants re-evaluate how they can improve their BCP strategies.
Stuart Selden and Jeffrey Toh, CA from FM Global highlighted how strategy and culture are at the core of resilience, and how these factors are the foundations of a strong commitment to risk mitigation, support from the Board and group-wide communication & action. The panel also reminded risk managers how this could be an opportunity to demonstrate the value of risk management to the senior leadership.
The speakers, together with PARIMA Board Members Kimberley Pelly and Suchitra Narayanan, addressed these questions from the audience: Is there a new normal on BCP testing and exercise plans? If a company is turning to government intervention to survive, does this have a significant impact on the reputation of the business?
