Lunch with a Friend

Yesterday, I had the honor and privilege to have lunch with an old friend who was passing through the area – Bob Nakao.

Bob is the Executive Publisher for Continuity Insights Magazine and has been helping promote the fields of business continuity, disaster recovery and crisis management for many years now.  I have known Bob, contributed articles to his magazines and presented at his trade shows many times throughout the years.

I was happy that Bob made time in his busy schedule to join me for lunch at my Gig Harbor Rotary Club meeting in Anthony’s restaurant.  I was able to show off the beautiful and historic (historic, in Pacific Northwest terms, which doesn’t go back very far) Gig Harbor and the two of us caught up on old times and discussed emerging trends in business continuity and disaster recovery.

It was just a few, short months after the tragic events of 9/11 that I spoke at one of Bob’s shows about Lessons Learned from the World Trade Center Tragedy.  And, now, ten years later, his magazine is going to feature the article I wrote, “Revisiting 9/11 – Have the Lessons Learned Stuck?”, in an upcoming edition.  I will post a link to the article when it appears.

It was nice to see you again, my friend.  Please stop by the next time you are in the area.

And that goes for the rest of you, too.

Thank you for your input.
