BCM & DR: NAME THE RADIO SHOW!!

As you may know from our last post, our founder Alex Fullick, will be doing an internet radio show on the Talk Radio Network at http://www.voiceamerica.com.

Based on all things Business Continuity Management (BCM) related, such as Disaster Planning, Emergency Management, personal safety (home, privacy…), Crisis Management & Communications, Business Continuity Planning etc. the show hopes to bring the BCM industry awareness to the masses.

We’re looking forward to what you come up with.
