Lieutenant Commander John Laye, USN (ret.) “Managing Partner and Principal Consultant of Contingency Management Consultants with a practice exclusively in emergency management, recovery and mitigation. Beginning in 1982, he continues on course development teams and adjunct faculty for what is now the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Emergency Management Institute. Beginning in 1971, he was a project manager; first in the U.S. Navy and then for county Departments of Public Health, where he conducted many exercises of all three types, and concedes that full-scale field exercises were the most engaging.


His experiences while managing the medical and health aspects of multiple casualty events convinced him that integrated planning and training for such events is essential. To test plans and to train those who must implement them, there is no better way than management exercises, provided participants clearly understand they are being trained --only the plan is being tested.

John Laye has an MS in Management from the University of Southern California and a BA in Political Science from the US Naval Postgraduate School. His colleagues voted him a Fellow of the Business Continuity Institute in 1997, and a Certified Management Consultant in 1990.”  John Lay is the author of Avoiding Disaster: How To Keep Your Business Going When Catastrophe Strikes.

According to the book description of Avoiding Disaster: How To Keep Your Business Going When Catastrophe Strikes, “The best thing you can do for your business is to be ready for anything.  When Disaster Strikes offers business leaders the peace of mind of knowing that their business is ready for any contingency, no matter how extreme. This guide is designed to be used as both a preparatory resource for when times are good, and an emergency reference when times are bad. This book gets managers up-to-speed on what they should be prepared to deal with and offers real solutions for putting those business continuity plans in place. From natural and man-made disasters to catastrophic computer hack attacks, When Disaster Strikes is the ultimate weapon for any manager determined to help the business survive no matter what.”
