Resilience [noun] rɪˈzɪliəns; the ability of people or things to recover quickly after something unpleasant, such as shock, injury, etc.
In recent months, many organisations have declared their intention to build a more resilient business. As Global Systems Integrators we have become only too aware of the fragility of our clients’ businesses and that of our own. And yet, very few business leaders understand the road to resilience. What is the model? What are the measures? And what role does technology play in critical areas such as supply chain, security, systems and networks?
Helping us explore these questions is John Volanthen. John was at the centre of one of the most inspiring stories of resilience in recent times – the rescue of the Thai football team from flooded caves in July 2018. John and his partner, Richard Stanton, orchestrated the rescue in a very dynamic arena. His story is one of adaptability, expertise and leadership in a continuously changing environment. We will ask “what can we learn from this example of resilience?”
