In today’s podcast I have a conversation with Gordon Graham a nationally and internationally known speaker on the topic of risk and risk management. I have heard Gordon speak several times and he is very knowledgeable and engaging. Our discussion covers a multitude of topics from Black Swan events, disaster planning and how to write procedures among many others. You can review Gordon’s Reading List at the link provided. During the podcast he mentions two books in particular, Amanda Ripley’s The Unthinkable: Who Survives When Disaster Strikes - and Why and then also Michele Wucker’s book, The Gray Rhino: How to Recognize and Act on the Obvious Dangers We Ignore If you want to listen to another Disaster Zone Podcast on risk, here’s a link to the one I did earlier this year with Michele Wucker, Personal and Organizational Risk Management.
