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.

But we still need a name!!

Soooo, be creative and provide us a suggested name for the show.

The only guidelines is that is should be short and catchy and easily identifiable to everyone – not just industry practitioners.

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

 

Regards,
