About the Speaker:

International Travel Contingency Planning for Planners
We must begin by asking ourselves, “why MUST I plan and prepare for contingencies when I’m traveling abroad?” The world is meant to be explored; but even the most developed parts of the planet have, with increasing frequency, experienced man-made events that have disrupted entire cities for days. Other areas within developing nations are subject to not only man-made events like terrorist attacks but natural disasters and weather caused catastrophes as well. Having a contingency plan in place, even the most basic one, can be lifesaving. This session will use proven methods to plan for contingencies that we hope never happen … but “hope” is not a method, and sound planning is!
