The Business Continuity Institute is delighted to announce that Peter Brouggy (Hon.) FBCI has been appointed as the new Chairman of BCI 20/20 Think Tank Australasian Group, a group designed to drive thought leadership across the business continuity and resilience industry.
Peter has been actively involved in the development of organizational resilience intellectual property and resilience tools for over 10 years. In 2014 he was the recipient of the Australasia BCI Personality of the Year Award, and in 2016 he received an Honorary Fellowship of the BCI in recognition for his contribution to the profession.
On accepting the new role, Peter commented: "The primary focus of the Australasian 20/20 group will be to complete the development of the BCI Resilient Tool. The intent is to create a tool that has been developed by BC practitioners to be used by BC practitioners in order to help identify and influence measures that improve the resilience of an organization. This will be an excellent demonstration of thought leadership led by the 20/20 group and will involve wide contribution and peer review by the Australasian BCI community of practitioners."
Howard Kenny FBCI, Chair of the Australasian Chapter of the BCI, said: "As an elder statesman in the industry and the inaugural winner of the prestigious Continuity and Resilience Personality of the Year Award in Australasia, Peter is the ideal person to be leading the BCI 20/20 Group, and guiding thought leadership across the region. He is very well respected and connected, and will bring his enthusiasm and commitment to whatever challenge he is currently tackling, I know he will do the Australasian membership proud and be a key contributor to global thought leadership in this role."
The 20/20 Think Tank is a group of thought leaders from across the discipline who have a passion to drive it forward and fine tune it in order to meet the needs of the future. The three 20/20 Groups that exist so far are based in the United Kingdom, Australasia and the United States, but more are in the development phase.
