I met Manuel several months ago at a meeting of CPAC’s Charlotte Chapter. Since that time Manuel has actively engaged with CPAC and most recently was a featured speaker at a CPAC meeting. His insights into Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery Planning were both insightful and pragmatic, leading to an extended Q&A session after he spoke. Manuel has quickly distinguished himself as a subject matter expert in our profession, and a valuable resource for organizations just creating their BCP/DR program or looking to improve it. I look forward to working with Manuel through CPAC at future events.
