Crisis Management Tips and Strategies
Moderated by Jim McNulty, Vice President, Bluefin

No facility manager wants to think about a crisis striking their buildings and/or grounds, but that’s no excuse for being unprepared. From natural disasters to workplace violence to a wide variety of other emergencies, the “it can’t happen here” attitude must be overcome by a stance of readiness. In this roundtable, share common tips and strategies to ensure that should the unthinkable happen, your prior planning will minimize the negative effects.

Discuss which designs help optimize organizational productivity and examine all of the factors surrounding open office plans, remodeling, green building, sustainability, plumbing and HVAC, and more.


COVID Crime and Your Personal Safety: Security Considerations During Crisis
Presented by Hector Alvarez, President, Alvarez Associates

As the nation continues to come to terms with the response and eventual recovery from the COVID crisis, it’s clear that we are all living a new normal.   Unfortunately, there are always individuals who would exploit times of crisis for their own benefit.  Taking a few basic precautions, you can reduce the risk to yourself and discourage those who may commit crimes. In this presentation we will discuss three things you can do to dramatical decrease your chance of being targeted; having a survival mindset, listening to and trusting your intuition and being aware of the environment around you.

Presented by Jim McNulty, Vice President, Bluefin
