Business Continuity Management

“Crisis is rarely a black swan, but mostly as a result of a lack of consistency.”

For Bodo Antonic, trusted adviser for entrepreneurs and senior and middle management executives, the persistence and safety of the company are everything. Risk management processes, as they are anchored in some companies, do not go far enough for him even with the best will in the world. Due to a lack of experience in dealing with crises, possible risks are continuously underestimated.

Keynote Speaker

Dr. Bodo Antonic loves change – and his keynote speeches are effective tools when it comes to change situations. His keynotes use force and momentum to set the impulses which are necessary for a transformation. Keynotes get your thinking going and shake up your beliefs and routines.

His activity as a keynote speaker rests on two pillars. On the one hand, he is relying on his experience as an interim manager, who has to initiate the turn for the better under pressure of time and resources in unknown territories. On the other hand, he benefits from his techniques and experiences as a rescue diver, who taught him to survive under pressure.
