John Englander, best selling author of High Tide on Main Street, will expand upon his keynote presentation “Rising Seas: Planning for the New Era” at the 2014 Decision Makers Conference with a special Seminar on “Sea Level Rise Realities and Risk”. John will explain the surprising facts about how rising seas, severe storms and extreme tides are combining for devastating effects on coastal communities, infrastructure and businesses.
At this special BPC-hosted event, Mr. Englander will also be joined by author and noted risk expert Dr. Mark Trexler. John and Mark will cover critical topics regarding rising seas, that affect public and private sector decision-making and risk management. Your organization will gain a clear picture of impacts that are on the horizon, the critical questions every company needs to be asking now, and some ideas for how to manage the risk.
The special 3 hour seminar will cover:
- The current science of sea level rise and what we can realistically expect in the coming decades as it combines with storm surge and extreme tides
- The power of scenario planning for structuring your risk and risk management thinking when it comes to sea level rise
- Risk management approaches when it comes to your assets, infrastructure and business continuity
